In 2002, LIRS formed the Trafficked Children Initiative to increase understanding regarding children who are trafficked into the United States. The LIRS Trafficked Children Initiative seeks to address policy implications, develop services and train providers to meet the special needs of trafficked minors, and educate the public regarding exploited children. LIRS also serves trafficked children directly through a partnership with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), another nonprofit voluntary agency, to work with the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) to place eligible child trafficking victims in culturally appropriate foster care, small group care, or independent living, which provide the children with a range of specialized and comprehensive services.
