Funds will directly support A New Leaf’s capacity to deliver a comprehensive continuum of care addressing nearly all social determinants of health related to long-term social and economic health and stability, according to a release.

“A New Leaf is proud to receive continued support from Bank of America Charitable Foundation as we work together to improve the economic mobility of individuals and families in our community. Without Bank of America’s generous support, A New Leaf would not have the capacity to meet the increased need for wraparound services to the most vulnerable among us. These funds will help A New Leaf support thousands this year to gain life-changing safety, stability, resiliency, and independence,” Michael Hughes, CEO of A New Leaf, said in the release.
