New Leaf Justice Enterprises

New Leaf Justice Enterprises is creating pathways to empowerment education and economic justice.

At New Leaf, we understand that experiencing trauma and substance misuse uproots survivors from their community and support networks. New Leaf reestablishes these connections so our participants and their children can thrive.

What is a New Leaf Community?

Each New Leaf Community will have the facilities and staffing structure to provide all the below services at no cost. The program components/facilities in each community are clustered into New Leaf community micro-centers meaning all services are located within a 10-minute walk of each other and most services will be open to the larger community whenever possible.
