Children of the Street Society
G&F Financial Group Foundation funds helped Children of the Street Society create toolkits to educate and empower parents about the realities of childhood exploitation
Children of the Street Society (the Society) was established in 1995 after a group of parents came together to fight for their children who were at-risk of being drawn into the Lower Mainland sex trade or who had lost a child to the streets. The Society works with youth, parents, schools and community and government groups to educate, advocate and bring awareness to the issue of childhood sexual exploitation that impacts countless children in our local communities.
While the Society works to support families, who have been impacted after their children have been exposed to the sex trade, a large part of their mandate is focused on education and prevention.
