The Florida Institute for Child Welfare seeks to promote safety, permanency, and well-being among the children and families of Florida that are involved with the child welfare system.

Florida ranks third in the U.S. for human trafficking prevalence. Children are particularly vulnerable to exploitation, especially children connected to the child welfare system. In the U.S., 60 percent of domestic child trafficking victims come from foster care and group homes. Learn more about Florida-specific statistics in the following infographic.

The Institute is collaborating with its affiliates, the Florida Department of Children and Families, and other stakeholders to help better identify and work with survivors. Follow our social media pages for resources posted throughout the month. If you suspect a child is a victim, please call the Florida Abuse Hotline at 1-800-96-ABUSE.
