Children of the Night was founded in 1979 by Dr. Lois Lee and it is the first established and only comprehensive program to help young victims of sex trafficking in North America. For the first three years of operation, more than 250 child prostitutes passed through Lee's two-bedroom apartment. With a generous grant, she was able to buy food for the children and turn her home phone into what would become the first nation’s sex trafficking hotline. In 1992, she opened the internationally-recognized Children of the Night shelter which receives child prostitutes ages 11-17 from across the United States. The shelter accommodates up to 24 residents at a time and provides an on-site school, individual case management, wholesome recreational outings, and a chance to experience a childhood free from sexual exploitation.
