New Leaf - New Life, Inc. was founded in April 2006 by a group headed by Rev. Harold (Hal) Taylor to address unmet needs of people caught up in our criminal justice system. New Leaf sees jail as an opportunity to intervene in the lives of troubled people following a philosophy of therapeutic justice. In Hal's words The corrections system should correct. People should come out of prison and jail more capable of leading productive lives than when they entered the system.
