Moving forward with a vision of expanding services for the homeless, A New Leaf Cottages 501(c)3 purpose is to provide affordable supportive housing solutions. Together with the wraparound services of A New Leaf’s behavioral health and community programs, the collaboration is a natural fit for the long-term success of the communities’ homeless including young people who have aged out of foster care at 18.
