Like-Missioned Community Programs Join Forces in Arizona

Arizona Women’s Education and Employment (AWEE) joined the family of programs of A New Leaf as a subsidiary organization.  The partnership will enhance the operation and sustainability of AWEE and expand the footprint and services of A New Leaf across greater Phoenix.  Both A New Leaf and AWEE share a heritage of championing those in need and offering individuals a pathway to independence and self-reliance.  The merger has multiple benefits including cost savings, enhanced programs, more efficient outreach and building new revenue streams.  A challenge grant from The Lodestar Foundation helped fund merger-related expenses.
