A New Leaf Residential Program
The 29,000 people living in the Tulsa metro with developmental disabilities are at a greater risk of becoming homeless. A New Leaf grew tremendously when we acquired Homelife Association, another Tulsa NPO, in 2013. This acquisition has given us the opportunity to provide more services to a greater number of individuals living in our community.
A New Leaf now serves 78 residential clients in 55 independent individual and group homes throughout the community. We provide 24-hour assistance with basic requirements as needed by each individual client. Other services include assisting clients in selecting the right staff to work with them; helping clients choose programs designed to maximize their independence; providing aid to clients searching for appropriate housing within the community; arranging and providing transportation to work, recreational activities, and appointments; and planning social activities and outings.
Group homes offer living arrangements for 6 to 12 people who share a home and receive up to 24 hours per day of support and training in daily living skills. Residents are 18 years of age or older and live in single-family homes located in the community close to other services and activities. We currently have 2 group homes that house 6 individuals each.
Daily Living Support
Daily Living Supports meet the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities living in their own homes in the community for up to 24 hours per day.
In accordance with the needs of the individual, Daily Living Supports include hands-on assistance, supervision, or prompting so that the individual performs tasks, such as eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, personal hygiene, light housework, money management, community safety, recreation, social, health, or medication management.
Supported Living meets the daily support needs of Homeward Bound clients (Hissom class members) living in their own homes and apartments.
A New Leaf provides 24 hour/7 day staffing for individuals receiving supported living. In addition, staffing assists and trains individuals to perform tasks such as eating, bathing, dressing, toilet training, personal hygiene, light housework, money management, community safety, recreation, social, health, or medical management. In addition, transportation for individuals receiving Supported Living services is also provided.
Habilitation and Training Services
Habilitation Training Services include the care, skills training, and supervision provided to individuals in their homes. Their trained staff provide assistance with acquisition, retention, or improvement in skills related to activities of daily living, such as personal grooming and cleanliness, bed making, household chores, eating and the preparation of food, and the social and adaptive skills necessary to enable the individual to be more independent.
