A state by state evaluation of foster care and human trafficking

A Project of the O.L. Pathy Family Foundation shows the link between the foster care system and human trafficking and how states are failing to care for children in foster care. The report was written by Firas Nasr, Nora Coyne, Joanna DiBiase, and Winnie Chu, designed by Anne Paglia, and the photo credits belong to Myles Tan, Unsplash. A state-by-state evaluation of foster care and human trafficking can be found at https://humantraffickingsearch.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Foster-Care-Report.pdf.
