July Business of the Month: Amity Foundation

Amity Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is nationally and internationally recognized for its expertise, experience, and proven success in advocacy. Since its inception Amity Foundation has been serving individuals, families, and children affected by recidivism, crime, homelessness and addiction. Amity’s model is based on six decades of therapeutic community research evaluations and outcomes and is recognized around the world as an effective, evidence-based methodology.

Amity’s evolved teaching community model has demonstrated success in helping individuals and families change the pathway of their lives to attain dignity and success. This approach, designed to be inclusive, views participants as ‘students’ capable of active learning rather than ‘patients’ learning how to cope with a ‘disease’. We use a whole-person holistic approach with extensive interactive curricula which fosters personal growth, emotional literacy, and social responsibility. Amity’s campuses have been recognized as schools for moral development, self-actualization, and transformation.

Amity rebuilds families, strengthens communities, reduces recidivism, crime, homelessness and addiction. Amity improves the economic disparity, health, and welfare of those we serve. Amity partners with numerous agencies, counties, and states to provide a comprehensive network of support for our students.

Our culturally inclusive curriculum, teaches and empowers our students to succeed in today’s world. Our effective, evidence-based approach is proven for individuals with a variety of needs which allows them to process and heal core traumas, identify and build strengths, improve self-esteem, learn life skills, and address the underlying issues that contribute to their addiction and other self-destructive behaviors.

We serve over 3000 individuals a day in Arizona and California. Amity’s innovative, award winning projects and services are aimed at overcoming addiction, abuse, and trauma as well as the barriers for those who have a background of incarceration for successful re-entry into today’s society.
