About

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) envisions children, youth, families, individuals, and communities who are resilient, safe, healthy, and economically secure.  ACF has worked for more than a decade to better identify and serve victims of human trafficking, who are among the most marginalized and under-recognized members of our community. Victims of human trafficking need support to safely rebuild their lives.

The ACF-wide Human Trafficking and Modern-Day Slavery Initiative is a step towards implementing the federal government’s commitment to protecting victims by strengthening coordination across programs and Federal departments. ACF also represents the Department of Health and Human Services on the President's Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons.
