New!  Volunteer Information & Training Sessions

The numbers of those coming to Launch seeking assisting are growing, and with that, are the demands on the staff and current volunteers.  Launch has come a long way from one-on-one mentoring and Tuesday night gatherings!  But, we have a long way to go to reach all those who struggling to live the lives there were born to live.

Join us for our information & training sessions, more to be scheduled!

See events page for dates.
