New Leaf was incorporated after a group of concerned individuals and organizations, led by
First Presbyterian Church of Fort Worth, joined hands to turn funds pledged by the City of Fort Worth
into the financial cornerstone for this much needed kind of housing.

Quail Trail, a new 48-unit permanent supported housing project for chronically homeless, disabled people, has broken ground at 4444 Quail Trail in Northwest Fort Worth.
The $4.7 million project will be debt free. Construction is being funded by forgivable loans of federal funds from the City of Fort Worth and grants from First Presbyterian Church of Fort Worth and five local foundations.
The income stream from rents will pay for property management, maintenance and case management. A variety of other support programs for residents will be provided by local nonprofits at no cost to Quail Trail or residents. Rental assistance for residents is being funded by HUD through Fort Worth Housing Solutions. Residents will pay 30% of their income, which typically come from Social Security or Social Security Disability Income, toward their rent and the HUD program will pay the balance.
Permanent supportive housing provides housing for persons with disabilities who have been chronically homeless with the greatest vulnerabilities and includes low barriers to housing entry, rental subsidies, case management. The ready availability of these combined services is designed to build independent living and tenancy skills as well as connect people with community-based health care, treatment and employment services.
4444 Quail Trail is within easy access to public transportation, employment opportunities, health care,
and affordable retail and healthcare.
The 3-acre site will have 12 single story fourplexes designed to resemble single-family homes.
The site plan has been designed with common areas to meet the needs of its resident and create an inviting
living space, including free laundry, community room, and offices for case managers and service providers.
Additionally, there will be landscaped green spaces with outdoor seating and perimeter fencing.
