Putting Safety and Essential Services First


With the recent spread of COVID-19 and the disruption it has caused in the Valley, A New Leaf is taking steps to address the crisis and protect the health of clients, staff, volunteers, donors, and the community at large. 

A variety of precautionary measures have been implemented, such as minimizing gatherings, social distancing, enhanced deep cleaning and sanitation of facilities, encouraging everyone to practice good hygiene. 

This is consistent with the advice published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS). Additionally, staff members are working from home, utilizing tele-health protocols, and using phone sessions when possible. See more details on our efforts by clicking above.

In 2020, you might be wondering if being happy is something you could admit to—but even during challenging times, there are ways to boost your mood and try to celebrate the good things in life.

When it comes to living an altruistic life that can help make a difference for others, one of the most valuable things you can give your community is the gift of volunteering.

The turning point began when Rodney entered A New Leaf’s Desert Leaf Apartments in Mesa. This 19-unit supportive housing complex serves families and individuals experiencing homelessness or severe mental illness, particularly veterans.

When mindful meditation becomes part of your daily routine, you’ll notice its benefits become a regular part of your life.
