DEMOTTE — New Leaf Resources, a Christian counseling center, opened a new office Sept. 29, with a ribbon cutting to celebrate on Sept. 30. The new facility broke ground in May at its new location at 5578 W. 1100 North near Sandy Pines Golf Club. The facility is within DeMotte’s two mile buffer zone, but has a Wheatfield address.

New Leaf Resources was located in a small office in the Town of Wheatfield, and as need increased for mental health services, outgrew the space and made plans to build their own facility. In May, Executive Director Terry Top said, “With so many residents seeking care, we have outgrown our current space and are ready to put down stakes and have a permanent home near DeMotte.”
