New Leaf

How the New Leaf Program Works

Set Goals, Remove Obstacles, Explore Options

Family Promise of Bergen County manages several apartments in its New Leaf Program. Families that are accepted into this program, generally after graduating from the network program, are given the opportunity to live in one of the New Leaf apartments while continuing to work on their Individual Service Plan. A Family Case Manager helps each family explore options, remove obstacles, and set goals related to employment, education and financial literacy. Families participate in a mandatory savings plan and may reside in an apartment for up to two years, if progress is being made toward their goals.
