Housing

services to help you be you again

A New Leaf’s Desert Leaf Apartments offers a safe, supportive environment for veterans and individuals to recover from trauma and find long-term stability. At this gated, close-knit complex, residents get to know one another and build a community rooted in a shared identity.
Onsite staff work closely with each resident to make sure that they receive the support they need to feel at peace and remain stable. Additionally, basic needs, counseling, and community resources are regularly made available to those in need of extra help, through A New Leaf and other partners.
Desert Leaf Apartments works with residents to ensure consistent, stable housing with active case management and comprehensive support services. Participation is tailored to meet the individual’s needs, assisting them in adapting to living with stability, autonomy, and dignity.
Desert Leaf is a partnership that currently includes the Cities of Mesa and Phoenix, Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care, MARC Community Resources, and A New Leaf. Residents are referred through community partners and governmental entities.
