Create Now is proud to be a participant in the 2014 Annenberg Alchemy+ program.


Around 300,000 children in the U.S. are at-risk of being prostituted. For most of these kids, life with a pimp is better than life at home. One in three youth who leave an abusive family will be lured into prostitution within just 48 hours.

Children of the Night is a group home in Van Nuys for 24 youth ages 11-17 who need to be rescued from prostitution.

Since September 11th, Ashley Jones has been teaching a group of girls about theater and art.

Ashley said, "I'm thankful to Create Now for helping me partner with Children of the Night. I feel extremely fulfilled through leading the Theatre Workshop."

The kids love Ashley's program. One girl said, "With acting, I get to release my feelings and it's a relief, a coping skill that helps you get away from every bad thing that you're going through."
