Health and Wellness Programs

A New Leaf was established in 1971, as PREHAB of AZ, to provide residential and outpatient behavioral health services for youth struggling with substance use and behavioral health challenges. Over the past 51 years, the organization has expanded its mental health services for all ages, in addition to providing multiple social service programs serving individuals and families experiencing poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, and other crisis situations.

A New Leaf provides outpatient mental health counseling, therapeutic after-school and summer programming, medication management, and in-home/school rehabilitative behavioral coaching for approximately 4,500 adults, youth, and children annually, targeting low-income households in the Phoenix Metro area.

Programming focuses on the cognitive, language, social/emotional, physical, self-help, and behavioral skills needed to succeed. Phoenix Day helps close the opportunity gap and ensures that low-income children enter kindergarten ready to learn by supporting the development of skills needed to succeed in school, and life.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To strengthen and expand our homeless services continuum and behavioral health services while continuing to provide a safe haven for victims of abuse.

Capacity building strategies have been identified in the areas below to carry out the goals and priorities in A New Leaf’s 2022-2024 Strategic Framework to support the organization’s sustainability, success, and continued growth.

Metrics & Evaluation – Measuring and evaluating program outcomes is critical for ensuring services are meaningful and impactful, meeting grant and contract requirements, and demonstrating success to secure funding to sustain and expand services. Historically, A New Leaf’s program metrics have been tied to government contracts, but most often do not convey the true impact of services provided to people in crisis who are experiencing complex and numerous challenges and are navigating systemic barriers that stand in the way of achieving prescribed outcomes. Although programs must continue to report on metrics defined by contracts, new metrics need to be defined to evaluate program performance and make modifications to services and processes. In addition to programs, metrics need to be established for administrative support departments including finance, facilities, HR, IT, QM, and philanthropy.

Human Resources – Challenges with employee recruitment, retention, and development have the potential to have a profoundly negative effect on A New Leaf’s ability to provide critical services to the community and to maintain funding contracts. Initiatives identified to address this include building the capacity of the HR team, offering recruitment and retention bonuses, increasing compensation rates across the agency to be more competitive in the job market, improving on-boarding processes, creating opportunities for professional development, clearly defining potential career paths, and continuing to promote a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Technology/Systems – As A New Leaf has grown and evolved in offering social services that address nearly every facet of social determinants of health, as well as managing hundreds of diverse grants and contracts, the need for building IT/systems capacity has become an urgent and complex need. Initiatives identified to address this need include building the capacity of the IT & Informatics team, implementing the Apricot 360 Social Services Software system across the organization for recording, evaluating, and cross-sharing program data, implementing and training staff to use updated Microsoft Office 365 applications universally, and upgrading technology.

With this organization's longevity, respect within the community, strong base of renewal and major gift donors, engaged Board of Directors, collaborative partnerships and robust volunteer and intern program, A New Leaf is poised to strengthen its organizational infrastructure as it pursues program growth. We continue to measure and assess our growth and effectiveness within service programs and enhance them based on community needs.

The above cited 2022-2024 strategic framework is currently being implemented. Specific objectives pursuant to each area of Metrics & Evaluation, Human Resources, and Technology/Systems are being completed.
