The Advocacy Network for Children is a non-profit agency with limited federal funding. The Advocacy Network for Children works with children going through sexual abuse, physical abuse or neglect. The funds Yellow Kiss Boutique is raising from their Spring Fashion show will directly go toward the "Prevention Program" that raises awareness and educates children how to say "No" or how to tell an adult when put in a sexual or physical abuse situation. The agency acts as the powerful voice in these children's best interest. To learn more about Advocacy Network for Children, visit their website at http://advonet.org/.
