Desert Amp Crew is a program of Desert Ability Center focusing on services and programs exclusively for people facing or living with limb loss. Our mission is to improve quality of life through engagement within the community, providing access to resources that meet their unique needs and, recreational programs that promote and sustain health and socialization.

We do not provide counseling services, endorse service providers or promote products.  All information shared is for educational purposes only.

Desert Amp Crew is extremely fortunate to have three Coachella Valley Certified Amputee Peer Visitors who will visit potential amputees before an amputation, while in the hospital and after their return home.  The power of peers in recovery for a person with an amputation cannot be overstated and our Peer Visitors are just a phone call away.
