What is Care Coordination?
The Bexar County Care Coordination Team (BCCCT) is a specialized coordinated response that includes members of law enforcement, Commercial Sexual Exploitation Youth (CSEY) victim advocacy groups, juvenile probation, medical service providers, mental health service providers, shelters and drop-in centers, the District Attorney’s office, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, child placement agencies, fire department and emergency first responders, and various other victim services providers.
The Bexar County Care Coordination Team (BCCCT) uses a trauma-informed system of care for confirmed youth victims, and youth at risk, of human trafficking and/or exploitation. Our framework includes the following components: the use of validated screening and assessment tools, cultural sensitivity, empowerment of victims and their families, providing trauma-specific services that are evidence-based, and creating a supportive environment for those employees working the front line.
ChildSafe Care Coordinators are responsible for providing case management for all exploited youth in the program and facilitating service coordination meetings with the providers involved with the youth.
The mission of the Bexar County Care Coordination Team is to bring together community partners to provide a trauma-informed response to meet the current and long-term needs of exploited youth by transforming victims into survivors.
