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.

We cover the cost of nonstop flights to our home from all over the country.

    Thank you so much for a great show on To Be Real today. The more we continue to publicly shed light on sexual abuse, the more people will come forward and find help for themselves and their families.

    You are welcome! It was a wonderful show and my prayers are that even one person is encouraged to seek the truth. The fight to stop childhood sexual abuse is more like a war. Let us unite in the loving direction of saving our precious children from the pain this abuse brings to their hearts!
