Putting a Stop to Human Trafficking

Project NO REST is designed to increase awareness of human trafficking affecting children and youth, especially those involved in the child welfare system in North Carolina; to reduce the number of these youth who are trafficked; and to improve outcomes for those who are trafficked. This is being accomplished through bringing together government agencies, organizations, and stakeholders to develop a comprehensive and coordinated plan to address human trafficking among youth age 25 and younger and to implement that plan in five counties or groups of counties across the state. The project is housed at the School of Social Work at UNC Chapel Hill.
