Our Impact



Thousand Children Rescued

Offering these children the specialized treatment and education they need to escape the streets and lead fulfilling, productive lives.



Years Serving Communities

The only comprehensive program in North America devoted to saving children forced into prostitution.



Children Sent To College

And to date, 70% are leading successful adult lives across various careers.


Our Programs

Children of the Night is the only place in America where a child can call from a seedy motel or truck stop anywhere in the United States, reach a skilled case worker 24/7 who knows how to rescue and relocate a child or young person from a dangerous condition without being arrested by the police and held on Witness Protection in solitary confinement until they testify against a pimp/trafficker. Our 24/7 nationwide toll-free case management services are comprehensive and able to help anyone trapped on the streets of our nation.



We operate a 24-hour, nationwide, toll-free hotline to help children still on the streets. Call (800) 551-1300


Established in 2011, Without Walls (WOW) brings Children of the Night’s unique, groundbreaking educational and social services to sex-trafficked children wherever they are, offering them an opportunity to escape life on the streets permanently.


Children of the Night maintains a caseload of hundreds of children and young people. Children are provided access to a suite of services ranging from shelter referrals, medical services, mental health services, transportation, placement in independent living programs, transitional housing, maternity homes or substance abuse programs.


Dr. Lee’s expertise in child sex trafficking is unmatched. It is therefore incumbent upon her to broaden and refocus efforts to help sex trafficking victims globally.
