a year of expansion

A New Leaf is growing and expanding to better serve Valley residents. Last year, A New Leaf acquired two additional programs:  Arizona Women’s Education & Employment (AWEE) and Phoenix Day. This important step means that AWEE and Phoenix Day will be on a firm path to sustainability while expanding valuable services to other locations across the Valley.  Together, A New Leaf’s programs are saving lives and making a real and lasting impact in our community thanks to your generous support!
