Human Trafficking Regional Navigator Program for Anne Arundel County

Board of Child Care’s Regional Navigator Program is for youth and young adult survivors of sex trafficking. The program will improve access to coordinated, trauma-responsive services and provide culturally competent, comprehensive, and holistic trauma treatment in Anne Arundel County.

Through a single point of contact service coordination model, the Board of Child Care (BCC) will provide eligible Anne Arundel County youth and young adults (24 years old and under) with emergency response services, basic needs support, and connection to resources that promote safety, self-sufficiency, and wellbeing.

BCC is working with partners and community stakeholders to assess and improve current screening efforts, promote awareness, increase early identification of child sex trafficking victims and identify gaps in services and the need for regional expansion in order to better meet the needs of Maryland’s youth.

Who We Serve

The Regional Navigator program serves Anne Arundel County youth and young adults age 24 and younger who are suspected or confirmed survivors of sex trafficking.
