Every day in Arizona, children face neglect, abuse and other traumatic experiences that are no fault of their own. Arizona’s Children Association targets the future we all want to see: one in which every child has a stable and loving home and parents & caregivers are provided the tools to create and sustain healthy family environments. Our programs have changed with time but our mission has stayed essentially the same: “Protect Children, Empower Youth and Strengthen Families.

The Yuma Family Advocacy Coalition established Amberly’s Place in 1999 to provide an innovative, multi- disciplinary approach to the investigation, prosecution and intervention of cases of child sexual and/or physical abuse, domestic violence, elder abuse and sexual assault. Amberly’s Place offers immediate crisis intervention, on-site medical attention, and one-time video interviews to avoid re-traumatization of victims, while providing a safe and nurturing environment.
