NELSONVILLE — Southeast Ohio’s landscape of survivor support services is turning over a “new leaf.”

New Leaf Justice Enterprises, an initiative of the Survivor Advocacy Outreach Program, recently opened New Leaf Marketplace in Nelsonville, with other locations in progress in Athens and Glouster.

The marketplace experienced delays related to supply chain issues and rising cases of COVID-19 earlier this year, but is fully open and operational as of earlier this month.

At the site of the former Nelsonville Emporium, the marketplace has offerings familiar to patrons of its predecessor: coffee, grab-and-go lunch items and fresh soups.

New Leaf employee and SAOP client Cynthia Anderson said of the program, “They’re helping me learn to love myself again.”
