Info for DCYF and Child Placing Agency Staff

Are you a Washington State DCYF worker in Regions 3 or 4 or a staff person at a CPA, who is assigned to a case involving a youth who has experienced commercial sexual exploitation or is at risk of commercial sexual exploitation?

ConnectUP may be able to help.

 

Case Consults:

ConnectUP can provide one time or ongoing case consults with a team of CSEC subject matter experts. These staffings are intended to identify risk factors and red flags, assess and address safety concerns, strategize ways of addressing behaviors that are commonly seen among exploited children, and also serve to help connect to and coordinate services. Case consults happen twice monthly and can be attended on the phone or in person. To schedule a case consult or for any questions about case consults please email, DCYF CSEC Liaison, Norene Roberts.
