Commercial Sexual
Exploitation of Children

Placer County CSEC

The goal of this program is to connect with youth and support them.

KidsFirst has developed a new program in Placer County to address the growing challenge of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) for those in or at risk of being exploited in our community. KidsFirst provides community-based support to meet the immediate and long term needs of youth in Placer County.

The goal of this program is to connect with youth and support them with linkages, safety planning, navigating supportive systems, crisis intervention, assessments, short-term mental health services and harm-reduction education. The CSEC Team utilizes a strengths-based and trauma-informed approach to engage and build relationships with youth. The team connects with youth through community-based engagement and interventions.

KidsFirst supports with linkage to a variety of services that support the overall wellbeing of our youth and their families. KidsFirst CSEC team is co-located and works collaboratively with Placer County District Attorney’s Office, Law Enforcement, Mental Health Agencies, Probation and Children’s System of Care.


What is CSEC?

The commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) is the sexual abuse or exploitation of a child, for the financial benefit of any person, or in exchange for anything of value, including monetary and non-monetary benefits. All commercially sexually exploited minors are victims, regardless of the presence of force, fraud, or coercion.
