Mission Statement

"To provide individuals with developmental disabilities with life skills, marketable job training through particular therapy, community-based vocational placement, and residential services to increase their independence and individual choices."

Description

A New Leaf’s mission is to provide people with developmental disabilities with life skills, marketable job training through horticultural therapy, community-based vocational placement, and residential services to increase their independence and individual choices.

A New Leaf was established in 1979 to provide horticultural-related job training to adults with developmental disabilities. A New Leaf began with one greenhouse, one staff and served two individuals. By 1980 A New Leaf, grew to serve 13 individuals. In 1986, A New Leaf built its first 12,000 sq. ft. greenhouse and vocational training facility. Then in September 2013, acquired Homelife Association. Through the acquisition, A New Leaf began operating two group homes and providing 24-hour assistance to individuals with developmental disabilities living independently.

Today, A New Leaf is honored to serve 325 individuals with developmental disabilities and autism through employment in six greenhouses, three retail centers, community job sites, students in the classroom, and individuals in residences.
