HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - State officials say new individualized care plans, treatment and case management will be available for survivors of child sex trafficking in Connecticut.

Department of Children and Families Commissioner Joette Katz and Office of Victim Services Director Linda J. Cimino announced the new services on Wednesday.

Youth will receive assistance for a minimum of nine months under the expanded services, and staff will be available around the clock to respond to emergencies. These services will be provided by the nonprofit group Love146, which has offices in New Haven.

State officials expect that 50 to 60 survivors will receive services during the 2017 fiscal year.
