This report from the West Coast Convening (WCC) sought to build on existing research-informed frameworks of outcomes measurements for programs serving youth and young adults experiencing homelessness. The WCC Outcomes Workgroup focused on creating a framework that providers and stakeholders can use to facilitate results-driven care, data sharing, and cross-agency analysis.

Abstract

The objective of this study was to develop a screening tool for sex trafficking, labor trafficking, or both among homeless young adults. It also looked at whether homeless youth who have experienced trafficking have different needs than those who have not. The researchers pretested a screening tool with 307 participants, ages 18 to 22, who were receiving services from Covenant House in New Jersey. From this testing, they validated Quick Youth Indicators for Trafficking (QYIT), a user-friendly screening tool that does not require trafficking expertise to administer in the field. During this process, the researchers found that labor trafficking is a significant form of trafficking among homeless youth. (author abstract modified)
