Support To Victims Of Abuse

Amberly’s Place Family Advocacy Center is  a non-profit  that  provides help and support to victims of child abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence and elder abuse. Crisis advocates respond on-scene or at the Center  to help  victims  from the moment the report is made. No one chooses to be a victim and support is desperately needed by those who are victimized. That support can range  from emotional support, comfort, empathy  for the victim and family to explaining the criminal justice system and escorting them through it.
