New Leaf - New Life supports residents during incarceration and in their transition back into this community.
Transformative justice, personal growth, and self-advocacy
Values: Mutuality, Collaboration, Respect, Dignity, Inclusiveness
New Leaf – New Life believes in supporting our neighbors that have been impacted by the criminal legal system. In this, we work to empower people towards self-advocacy; supporting one another in the spirit of solidarity not charity. The core values that guide our work are based in mutuality, collaboration, respect, dignity and inclusiveness. As an organization, we are committed to working in partnership with our impacted neighbors (mutuality), with likeminded committed community partners (collaboration), listening and acting on the legitimate concerns of all parties (respect), treating each person with the common decency due to everyone (dignity) and excluding no individual from our circle of love and service (inclusiveness).
