For nearly three decades, the Los Angeles-based Children of the Night organization has been quietly doing what few others could: helping children away from the sad path of sexual exploitation and prostitution. This success comes from the dedication of Dr. Lois Lee, the criminologist who founded the nonprofit organization in Hollywood. Sadly, Children of the Night is just one light on an otherwise dark horizon for children who run away from home and end up on the street. While extremely successful in its Van Nuys location in helping teen prostitutes make the transition out of life on the streets, there is no other program like it in the country. And, sadly, child prostitution is not unique to Los Angeles.
