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.
