In 2018, Launch Ministry’s homeless youth drop in center was busy supporting over 300 unique individuals who visited over 2,000 times seeking support with housing, employment and immediate needs.  172 of these individuals participated in our Adulting Mentoring Program, and we were able to provide housing for 24 through our scattered site housing program.

2019 was even more of a blessing as we  worked to expand capacity with our housing program, get settled into our new drop in center, pilot our new Adulting 2.0 program, and with your support, expand all our programs with generous volunteers! We saw a 15 percent increase in total drop in visits over 2018! We also put a ton of effort into ensuring that all youth in our community would have access to our services without barriers and saw a significant increase in our capacity to provide culturally competent services.

In 2020, Launch is focusing on the following program priorities:
* Expanding our successful permanent supportive housing program into Scott County
* Expanding our Adulting 2.0 skill building program to help more youth become ready for housing and employment opportunities
* Finding better ways to onramp our youth into mental health and chemical use treatment programs
* Researching better ways to connect youth in rural parts of the two counties to our programming
