School, District, and Community Resources

LAUSD parent resources are available at
The Student Health and Human Services (SHHS) Division provides a comprehensive array of services that support student achievement and success in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The main goal of SHHS is to support a safe, caring, nurturing environment where children thrive and leave school, college and career ready. Directors within the Division identified the many ways in which SHHS services align with the LAUSD goals, as measured by the performance meter. Through the lens of shared accountability there is an opportunity to more clearly measure, illustrate and articulate the many ways that SHHS support services directly contribute to the defined success of the District.

What is Human Trafficking?
U.S. law defines human trafficking as the use of force, fraud, or coercion to compel a person into commercial sex acts or labor or services against his or her will. The one exception involves minors and commercial sex. Inducing a minor into commercial sex is considered human trafficking regardless of the presence of force, fraud or coercion.
What is CSEC?
Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) is a form of modern-day slavery that exists both in the United States, and internationally. CSEC perpetrators use violence, threats, lies, debt bondage, and other forms of coercion to force women, men and children to engage in commercial sex against their will. Under federal law, any minor under the age of 18 years induced into commercial sex is a victim of sex trafficking—regardless of whether or not the trafficker used force, fraud, or coercion.
