Amberly's Place houses professionals who are specially trained in dealing with victims of child abuse (both physical and sexual), domestic violence, sexual assault and elder abuse. This special training helps to reduce the trauma to the victim. We accomplish this by promoting a working atmosphere of mutual respect and open communication between the professionals providing the services.
Referrals to Amberly's Place come from community services providers, Child Protective Services, and law enforcement personnel.
Our services are based on the individual needs of each victim. These services include on-scene crisis intervention, medical evaluation, interviews of victims, mental health referrals, and the provision and coordination of other victim services.
Last year in Yuma County 2,138 victims stepped through our door and began a journey to becoming a survivor. These are victims of Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, Elder Abuse, Sexual Assault, and stalking. These are not just meaningless statistics. Each one represents a son, a daughter, a loving mother, a caring father, a sister, a brother, a kind neighbor, a dear friend, a colleague. Let your new year’s resolution have meaning, let your journey have a lasting impact. Pledge $10 a month for 2016 and be a voice for those in need. See this year’s resolution through; let them know they don’t stand alone.
It’s Better to Give & Receive
Give to your favorite charity.
Reduce dollar-for-dollar what you pay in Arizona income tax.
Benefit the entire community. Keep YOUR tax dollars local!
The number and the needs of the less fortunate in Yuma Arizona have never been greater.
You can help. You can give & receive.
If you donate to a qualifying charitable organization in Arizona by Dec. 31, you can claim a tax credit for 2016 that reduces dollar for dollar what you pay in state income tax.
Couples who file jointly can reduce their state taxes by up to $800; individuals or head of household filers can claim a tax credit of up to $400.
The money you would otherwise pay in taxes can benefit your community through the organizations that you choose!
How does it work?
Donate to an organization that serves the working poor.
1) Prepare your Arizona state tax return .
2) Claim the credit* when you file your return.
3) Giving & receiving is easier than ever.
Recent state law changes mean you no longer need to itemize your state return to claim this credit. The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit is in addition to and completely separate from the Private School Tuition and Public School Activity tax credits. You may participate in any or all three if you choose. If you have no Arizona tax liability for the current year, you may carry the tax credit forward for up to five years. Your donation may also be claimed as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax.
The need is great, and you can help.
