CHANCE is a treatment program in Miami-Dade County for youth identified as victims of human trafficking that provides a comprehensive continuum of services designed to address trauma, improve youth functioning and well- being, and reintegrate affected youth into a normalized family and community setting. USF/CFS is conducting a program evaluation and longitudinal outcome study of youth served by the CHANCE program to assess the effectiveness of these services for this population. Areas of investigation include child and youth functioning at home, in school and in the community, as well areas specific to this population including traumatic exposure and symptoms.
