Children of the Night is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to assisting children between the ages of 11 and 17 who are forced to prostitute on the streets for food and a place to sleep. Children who call locally are counseled over the telephone while they wait for a taxi to transport them to our home. Children calling from other states are rescued and placed in local shelters. In most cases there is a lack of specialized services for child prostitutes, and many are brought in from other states for our comprehensive services. We cover the cost of nonstop flights to our home from all over the country.
