Children of the Night, WOW is Children of the Night Without Walls. I look a lot around to see what it is that we do in the Children of the Night home, what is not done and other program throughout the nation. And I found that our educational programs - I mean our health programs and professional volunteers were programs that could be implemented among street programs, drop in centers and other shelters all over the United States. We can sign young people on into our computer where we can do a GED assessment. We can do for their GED. We can pay for them to take the GED. We can even pay for them to take a cab right to the test. We can help them with supplemental social security disability applications. So, that those who are psychotic, who have voices in their head and see things that are not there, can receive the benefits that were designed for them. And will no longer have to live on the streets. And we can take doctors and lawyers and dentists and other professionals and tie them to this young people who don't have access to those kinds of professionals. We can raise the standard of care for kids, young people and even young adults who are forced to live on the streets through Children of the Night, WOW.
