Get the tools and training you need to quickly, easily and effectively identify child survivors of sex trafficking. Join the community of partners using the platform and sharing best practices.


Identifying children and youth who have been trafficked for sex can be hard. In fact, data suggests that as little as 2% of the estimated 79,000 victims of child sex trafficking in Texas get officially identified, even though victims interact with professionals during their trafficking experience who could help them.

Partners using the Tier 1 Platform are changing that reality, identifying more survivors amongst their client populations and accessing more specialized resources to serve them.

The Tier 1 Screening Platform is so easy to use. On a scale of 1-5, we’d rate the application a 5.”
