Lunch & Learn: The Connection Between Missing Children and Human Trafficking

Join us on May 25th as we host a special training to commemorate National Missing Children’s Day! We know that traffickers are intentionally looking for and grooming vulnerable people. Even more so since the pandemic started, mental health and isolation have further increased vulnerabilities amongst our youth. Come “Lunch & Learn” with us and hear from a local specialist on missing and homeless youth as we share statistics, risks and warning signs that are specific to this population of vulnerable children among us!
