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 2015 and be a voice for those in need. See this year’s resolution through; let them know they don’t stand alone.
