Children of the Night is the only place in North America where a child can call from a seedy motel or truck stop anywhere in the United States, reach a child care worker 24/7, escape from a dangerous condition, board a pre-paid airline, be met at LAX and arrive in the safe, nurturing Children of the Night home within 24 hour of the initial call for help.
American children ages 11 -17 are sex trafficked within the United States and Children of the Night offers the only comprehensive program for their recovery by providing long term shelter, onsite school, case management and aftercare.
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 child prostitutes 24 hours a day. Children of the Night pays for taxi fare and/or airline transportation to bring America's child prostitutes from all over the U.S. into the Children of the Night home. Our hotline staff works closely with law enforcement to rescue children from vile, dominating pimps. Our home features an on-site school.
Since 1979 we have rescued over 10,000 American children from the ravages of prostitution right here in the United States. And in the last 35 years, we have placed over 100 children in colleges across America. Many of our successful graduates are teachers, 911 emergency operators, nurses and child care workers. They want to give back because you "gave them a chance".
