Children of the Night's Nationwide Case Management

Case Management Weekly Client Review
Case Management Weekly Client Review

Since our inception in 1979, all Children of the Night programs have been exclusively funded by private donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals. 

Children of the Night developed an effective model of case management and education combining advanced internet technology and mobilized social services for sex trafficking victims.

From our headquarters, Case Managers provide children 24-hour services, 7 days a week. We rescue youth from pimps, help with medical services, public health insurance, social security/disability benefits, maternity housing, drug program placement, domestic violence housing, transportation, mental health services, psychiatric evaluations or access to psychotropic medications, advocacy with the courts, social workers, probation officers, resume preparation, job placement, 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 tutoring through ZOOM tutors sex trafficking victims for the high school diploma – the first step in escaping the streets. The high school diploma 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 an on-going chaotic lifestyle so our case management program dovetails with our High School Diploma tutoring.

Since our 2017 conversion from a 24-bed shelter home to mobile case management, the number of young people that we have been able to help has increased by 90%.

 

Permanent solutions for young people trying to escape prostitution may only be resolved by innovative social services - not by law enforcement.

Young sex trafficking victims and children at risk often miss out on social programs available to them because they are unaware of what is available and are easily frustrated by the tedious applications required to access these programs. Our Case Managers are well-versed in the intricacies of the system and can provide step-by-step directions to ease the process. They provide application assistance, appointment reminders, accompany youth to appointments and even arrange transportation if needed. Our case managers are available every step of the way. Without this constant support and encouragement, these children will remain on the streets.

Most long-term programs require essential documents like birth certificates and social security cards which many of our youths do not have. These items must be obtained from federal, state and local agencies in a particular order, but with different requirements. These bureaucratic barriers can be confusing, but our trained case management staff can identify existing records, substantiate residency and create a plan for obtaining all required documents.
