Drawing of an open book

Identifying safe and stable housing is of critical importance for the prevention of commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) among children and youth involved in the child welfare or juvenile justice systems living in out of home care. This study, first published in Children and Youth Services Review, seeks to explore youth’s experiences, opinions, and perceptions of out of home care, with a focus on group care, in order to identify what types of living situations are preferred and how out of home care can be improved.
