The Children of the Night home is open to child prostitutes throughout the United States, and the Children of the Night hotline is ready and able to rescue these children 24 hours a day. We provide free taxi/airline transportation nationwide for America’s child prostitutes who wish to escape prostitution and live in our home. Our hotline staff works closely with law enforcement to rescue children from vile, dominating pimps. Our home features an on-site school and college placement program. After youngsters complete our rigorous and comprehensive program of academic and life-skills education, caseworkers are available to provide ongoing case management to hundreds of graduates. In 2011, Dr. Lois Lee, Founder & President of Children of the Night, created “Children of the Night With Out Walls” (WOW) for the sole purpose of taking Children of the Night programs “back to the street” to help those who are unable to access traditional social and educational services. WOW offers these people access to an education by providing free online GED assessments, GED tutoring, funding for the GED Test, support documents for registration to test for the GED and transportation to the GED testing sites throughout the United States. Children of the Night WOW offers nationwide sophisticated case management for the mentally ill who are forced out on the streets without family or resources.WOW case managers provide access to Supplemental Security Income from the Social Security Administration and government medical benefits so the totally disabled living on the street may have access to residential placements, psychiatric care, psychotropic medications, requisite transportation and hand-holding to access these services. WOW connects volunteer lawyers, physicians, psychiatrists and other professionals nationwide to provide specialized services sometimes required to permanently remove people from life on the street. Support services for Children of the Night WOW program are provided by our 24/7 hotline.
Children of the Night is a privately funded non-profit organization established in 1979 and dedicated to rescuing America’s children from the ravages of prostitution.
