Unlike adults without consistent housing, youth are often pushed into homelessness directly, because of an already traumatic situation -- whether that is violence in the home or rejection by their family. Fresh off one traumatic situation, they are then targets of traffickers seeking to exploit the vulnerabilities that seem to grow exponentially overnight. This leaves survivors of homelessness and sex trafficking like Sherry, who also served as a committee member of the Advisory Council for the National Network for Youth, to ask, “Do I really have a choice? Or is youth homelessness and trafficking truly a never-ending cycle?” Join us as we speak with Darla Bardine, the executive director of the National Network for Youth, an organization dedicated to amplifying the voices of youth experiencing homelessness, in the hopes of seeing an end to it. What are the barriers to finding secure housing and to leaving sex trafficking for youth experiencing homelessness? Tune in to learn more!
