Quality service means effective, accessible service
Fair human resource management promotes quality service
3% of the population of the United States has developmental disabilities. That’s over 8 million people with an IQ below 70. In the Greater Tulsa area that translates to 24,000 people with a developmental disability. A New Leaf is about helping individuals and the families find meaningful and safe vocational situations while providing staff support in their home.
ANL provides work skill training using horticultural therapy here in our greenhouse. We provide job training, placement and supervision on community based jobs for a variety of employers throughout the metro area. Vocationally ANL exists to provide a place for adults with developmental disabilities to learn work skills, have a safe work environment, to develop their own peer group and be a productive member of the working society.
In 2002 ANL launched a residential respite program to meet the needs of local parents. Working with a parent we help to find staff the parent is comfortable with to come into their home and assist with the care and supervision of their child or adult child. Our In-Home respite program now reaches from Tulsa to Henryetta to Muskogee.
Spring of 2008 has ANL serving 58 individuals: 19 on campus, 12 on community job sites & 27 in residential respite, but ANL’s effect on the community extends beyond merely a number. Parents can work because they have somewhere safe, structured and educational for the child to go. Parents now have help in their home for the first time. Every day ANL is having a profound, life altering effect on over 150 people. Yet there are still hundreds sitting at home with Mom and Dad having no connection to the community. A New Leaf is about helping these families.
