Children of the Night is a privately funded non-profit organization established in 1979 with the specific purpose to provide intervention in the lives of children who are sexually exploited and vulnerable to or involved in prostitution and pornography.
Children of the Night is the only place in America where a child can call from a seedy motel or truck stop anywhere in the United States, reach a skilled case worker 24/7 who knows how to rescue and relocate a child or young person from a dangerous condition without being arrested by the police. Our 24/7 nationwide toll-free case management services are comprehensive and able to help anyone trapped on the streets of our nation.
Children of the Night has developed an effective model of case management and education combining advanced internet technology and mobilized social services.
From our headquarters, Children of the Night Case Managers provide children 24-hour services, 7 days a week. Whether they need rescue from pimps, medical services, public health insurance, social security/disability benefits, maternity housing, drug program placement, domestic violence shelter, emergency transportation, mental health services, psychiatric evaluations or access to psychotropic medications, advocacy with the courts, social workers, probation officers, resume preparation, job placement assistance, access to vocational or trade schools or community colleges, applications for FAFSA (federally funded financial aid) – we are ready and willing to help.
Our FREE, face to face online tutoring program tutors sex trafficking victims so they may obtain their high school equivalency – a vital first step in escaping the streets. The high school equivalency enables them to enter the military or work in support positions in medicine or law; attend vocational or trade school and even community college.
Our students are unable to attend regular school because of extensive existing trauma and their on-going chaotic lifestyles – therefore our case management program dovetails with our GED online tutoring program.
The number of young people we reach since our transition from shelter to mobile case management in 2018 increased the number of clients by 90%.
Permanent solutions for young people trying to escape prostitution may only be resolved by innovative social services – not by law enforcement.
