Children of the Street was founded in 1995, when a group of parents from the Lower Mainland united after their children were sexually exploited.
Recognizing that this tragic occurrence could happen to any child in the community, Children of the Street began providing a series of workshops aimed at educating and preventing children and youth from being affected by this crime.
Children of the Street is dedicated to preventing the sexual exploitation and human trafficking of children and youth in British Columbia. We achieve this goal through education strategies, public awareness initiatives, and family support. Children of the Street is a program of PLEA Community Services Society of BC.
We acknowledge that we work, live and play on the unseeded territories of the Kwiketlem, Tseil-Waututh, Sto:lo and Qayqayt peoples.
