The Yuma Region is defined as Yuma County, not including the lands belonging to the Cocopah Indian Tribe. The Arizona portion of the Fort Yuma-Quechan Reservation is also located within the region along the Colorado River near the city of Yuma.


The Yuma Regional Partnership Council makes strategic investments to support the healthy development and learning of the young children in the region. The regional council’s priorities include:

  • Scholarships for children to access high-quality early learning
  • Strengthening families through voluntary home visiting, parenting education and supporting children with special needs
  • Improving the quality of family, friend and neighbor care
