About This Campaign

Help us expand our programs to serve more of this vulnerable population by making a donation or sharing this page on social media. This year we're setting the bar high. Through the Grow Together campaign, our goal is to raise $30,000 between September 3, 2019 to November 8th, 2019 for A New Leaf's programs. Remember, we're not just raising funds and awareness, we're creating opportunities for individuals with development disabilities and autism.

Campaign to Support A New Leaf Inc

A New Leaf’s mission is to provide people with developmental disabilities (including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder) with life skills, marketable job training through horticultural therapy,community-based vocational placement, and residential services to increase their independence and individual choices.  In May of 1979, A New Leaf started with the vision of Stan and Irene Burnstein to provide horticultural-related job training to adults with developmental disabilities.  The Burnsteins envisioned a unique working environment for their daughter who has a developmental disability.  A New Leaf began with one small greenhouse in Broken Arrow, which employed one staff person and served two individuals.  In 1980, just one year later, A New Leaf had grown to serve 13 individuals.  

 

By 1982, A New Leaf became a certified sheltered workshop through the State of Oklahoma. In 1986, A New Leaf purchased land in Broken Arrow where it built its first 12,000 sq. ft.greenhouse and vocational training facility. In September 2013, A New Leaf acquired Homelife Association, another Tulsa Area United Way nonprofit agency.  Through the acquisition, A New Leaf began operating two residential facilities and providing 24-hour assistance with basic needs to individuals with developmental disabilities living independently in the community.  A New Leaf also serves students in the public school system with Autism Spectrum Disorder through a program called Austim Works! in 15 area schools.  Today, A New Leaf has expanded in a multitude of ways. Clients work and earn a wage in six greenhouses, four public retail garden centers, a three-acre vegetable farm (Blooming Acres), two aquaponics systems,SEEDS academy making jewelry and 12 community-based job sites. 

 

In spring of 2018, after years of research and collaboration, A New Leaf launched a capital campaign for The Village - a neighborhood intentionally designed to meet the needs of people with developmental disabilities and their families while also encouraging independence and community integration.  When complete, this expansion will nearly double the organization’s impact.  The Village is slated to open Fall of 2021. To date, A New Leaf has achieved 71% of the $19 million goal.

Earlier this year, I was introduced to A New Leaf. I have been so impressed with how this organization combines social, educational, employment and community opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Learning that 50% of A New Leaf clients have no family, I realized how necessa...
