Below is some helpful information as you consider a financial partnership with Launch Ministry.
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 has proved to be even more of a blessing as we have 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 have seen a ten percent increase in visits to the drop in center this year and the numbers keep growing!
We currently have a $25,000 matching grant to support our $150,000 investment round which focuses on the following 2020 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
