The intent of the New Deal was to get the United States's economy out of the Great Depression. That was really its only goal.
The thing that made it a "new" deal was that fact that this was the first time that the government had decided that it needed to help ensure that the people were able to get by -- that they would not be too poor.
Up until this point, the government pretty much just kept out of the way and let the economy do its own thing. But now, FDR decided that there should be a new deal -- one where people could expect that the government would help to protect them from hard times.
