GoFUNDME Site

We have set up a GoFundMe page, which explains our response to the current public health situation, outlines the needs for funding, & offers an easy way to donate.
New Leaf – New Life is a 501c3 nonprofit organization (501c3 #: 20-3168603) whose mission is to support individuals during incarceration and in their transition back into our community.  To that end, we offer services to incarcerated individuals in the Monroe County Jail and to anybody after release. Applying the philosophy of transformative justice, we encourage personal growth and self-advocacy, supporting incarcerated individuals in their efforts to make a successful transition back into the community.
For some frequently asked questions about our services, see our FAQ page.

COVID-19 Update!

Our usual operations have changed, as access to the Transition Support Center is by appointment only (call the office at 812-355-6842), while most programs within the Monroe County Jail are suspended. Please be patient with us, and please look out for others at this time! See our Donate page & Volunteer page for ways to help & our Contact Us page for specifics on the TSC. And stay up to date with our Facebook page.

We also encourage you to check out our GoFundMe page, which explains much of our COVID-19 response & the need for donations. For our clients, we've expanded our Resource Guide to include COVID-19-specific resources.

And note that our Expungement Desk has suspended all in-person outreach effective immediately.  (See our Facebook page for updates.)  Indiana Legal Services are still accepting clients for expungements, so for all inquiries, please call: 1-844-243-8570.
