Children of the Night's 2020 Case Management Repor

Case Management Weekly Client Review
Case Management Weekly Client Review

From our headquarters, skilled Children of the Night Case Managers assist young American sex trafficking victims with 24-hour services 7 days a week. Whether they need rescue from pimps, access to medical services, emergency & non-emergency transportation, mental health services, psychiatric evaluations or access to psychotropic medications, Children of the Night is ready to serve.

These children and young people require multiple contacts daily, step-by-step directions and transportation to complete some of the common tasks required to access care. They are easily frustrated by the process of accessing services and cannot complete applications on their own. They miss appointments, need to be reminded, led, nudged, and provided transportation. They require handholding, and without this constant support they will remain on the streets.

Most people do not understand that access to long-term programs requires essential documents and there is an order to obtaining each document. First the birth certificate requiring an application and a check, secondly a social security card which requires an application and an in-person appointment in the social security office then Government Identification requiring both an application and in-person appointment in the DMV. Some DMV offices require proof of residency and enrollment in high school. These barriers cannot be overcome without the support of trained case management staff to help identify records to substantiate residency.

These basic requirements as well as others must be met prior to placement in independent living and transitional housing programs (both often require a job and enrollment in college), maternity homes (requiring a doctor’s appointment and proof of pregnancy), detox programs (which often require public health insurance) and sober living (which requires completion of detox program).

We successfully move sex trafficking victims from the streets to stabilization and placement in jobs, special educational schools, trade schools, vocational schools and community colleges.

Our case managers are skilled at accessing public health insurance and Social Security Benefits as well as navigating the bureaucratic process for placement in Independent Living, Transitional Housing, Maternity Homes and Substance Abuse programs nationwide.

In 2020, we helped 412 young people escape prostitution throughout America. 65% were between 13 and 24 years of age and 325 were female but 79 were male and 8 transgender.  They represented African Americans, Latinos, Caucasian and Bi Racial respectively.  They were referred by other programs, parents, social workers, the internet and former youth clients.

Children of the Night's 2020 Domestic Tutoring

Youth Taking The High School Equivalency Exam
Youth Taking The High School Equivalency Exam

Young sex trafficking victims are unable to attend regular school because of trauma and chaotic lifestyles. Our case management is critical to the stabilization of students who need skills to escape prostitution.  

Our FREE, ONE on ONE, ONLINE TUTORING program is portable anywhere in the world and a student may sign-in via email just prior to each tutoring session no matter where they are located.  By using Zoom online video communications, the student works face to face with their personalized tutor 2 to 3 times a week.

There are no fees.  A student only needs a mobile device and Wi-Fi and a commitment to 2 to 3 hours a week of consistent tutoring. Most students can successfully pass the high school equivalency with 50 hours of tutoring – the cost of $750.

Supervised tutoring is provided online from our headquarters in Los Angeles, California and our tutoring is 24/7 in ANY language.

Children of the Night WOW even helps with college applications and federal financial aid so the gatekeepers to legitimate jobs and mainstream society can no longer lock these children out of a future.

Since 2011, Children of the Night has helped over 250 young sex trafficking victims pass the High School Equivalency Exam.  
In 2020 there were 3,186 tutoring hours provided to 112 students in 15 states.  Despite COVID challenges, 15 passed the high school equivalency and 31 passed portions of the high school equivalency exam (4 portions). 
There were 97 female students, 14 male and 1 transgender making up Latino's, African Americans and Caucasians respectively.
58% of these young people were between 16 and 24 years of age.  They were referred mostly by Social Workers, Friends, Relatives, Drop In Centers, Alumni of the Children of the Night program, Drug Programs and others.

Children of the Night's 2020 Global Tutoring

Christian orphanges and other NGO's from developing countries reached out to Dr. Lee for help with their programs.  Dr. Lee was impressed with the homes built and care provided, but the absence of education was troubling.

In 2011, Dr. Lee created Children of the Night WOW - Children of the Night With Out Walls to provide education to child sex trafficking victims who lacked viable economic alternative to prostitution as a means to support their families.

In 2020, Children of the Night tutored 23 sex trafficking vicitms in Africa, India and Nepal.

The tutoring required 630 hours of one on one ZOOM tutoring in English and Math.

The students ranged in age from 11 to 26 years old.

3 of the students tutored in a drop in center in India and 20 other students tutored in a children's home in Nepal and Tanzania.

All of our students were female.

This is the begining our our global tutoring program and in 2021, with additional resources, we plan on tutoring a lot more.
