A New Start for Men Experiencing Homelessness

A New Leaf’s East Valley Men’s Center (EVMC) provides shelter and support services to single men, the largest homeless population in Arizona, and the population that struggles most to find assistance. EVMC assists men as they re-integrate into the community with safe and stable housing, and  provides the tools to maintain self-sufficiency.

EVMC works with residents to build a personalized plan to foster physical and mental health, financial independence, and social responsibility. The program provides comprehensive services and customized strategies for each resident.
