Hello, my name is Stephanie. I’m from Miami, FL. I was first trafficked when I was 16 years old. After that, it was and on and off constant struggle in and out of the game. I finally got out when I got arrested at 19 for human trafficking (I DID NOT COMMIT THAT CRIME). After spending 14 and a half months in the county jail, I was let out into a program for survivors of human trafficking. I was very anxious to get my GED, but didn’t have the means of doing so, until I found CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT online. Which was one of the biggest blessings I received thus far. Ms. Ventura has helped, supported and encouraged me throughout this entire journey! They pay everything for you and set up the test dates and even offered to find me a ride there, all the way from California! Words cannot describe how grateful I am for Ms. Ventura and my AWESOME Math tutor Maria! Thanks to all the encouragement and support from Children of the night, I finally feel like I can accomplish LIFE successfully. I aspire to open and run a spa/salon in the next few years, but first I will be studying phlebotomy, and, thanks to Children of The Night, I will soon be enrolled in COLLEGE. I, for one, HATED school and never in a million years thought I would even be considering such a crazy thing, lol but I can’t wait to get started on my new career path! Also, as of right now, Diana, who operates the hotline part of the program, is helping with placement to a new transitional house, until I can get on my feet! Overall, this program has really helped me get my life back on track! BIG THANK YOUS TO EVERYONE WHO IS AT CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT. I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL!!!! -Stephanie

Children of the Night has the best tutoring that is personalized to your specific needs and they make you feel like you matter. They care not only about your education, but you as a person. They have really changed my life. I never thought I could get my GED in a matter of just a few months. I am 18 and pregnant and my education is extremely important to me. They understood how urgently I needed to finish and helped me get things done quickly and simply. The program helped me lift such a huge weight off my shoulders and helped me make so many of my loved ones proud. Children of the Night is truly the best program anyone could ever ask for. -Laila

When I was lost you showed me the way When everyone else left, you chose to stay Though I continued to fail, you never lost hope You taught me how to succeed , and showed me how to be an adult It is because of children of the night that I am alive . I was trafficked at age 12 and in foster care until age 18. Dr. Lois Lee helped me complete my GED and get into college, furnished my first apartment and helped me get my license to work in treatment centers for youth. With assistance from the generous donors that help children of the night Dr.Lois Lee was able to get my teeth fixed, remove tattoos I received while I was being pimped as a young child, got me the right doctors I needed to see to get my health back on track, as well as helping my younger sisters out of dangerous situations. I am now 25 years old and still in school , I have a baby and children of night made sure I had everything I needed to take care of my daughter. I have kept in contact with COTN for more than a decade and will never forget the words Lois first said to me “I will hold your hand if you want to go to college or I will hold your hand while your dying of aids” I chose to use children of the night to get my life together and they have held my hand every step of the way.
