We have partnered with Launch to carry out the unified mission of changing lives by providing care and services for children and families living in underserved communities in the greater Washington, DC, area.

In partnership with So What Else, Launch will provide unique fitness and wellness programming for several of our communities. Launch seeks to change lives through these classes by (1) building a stronger sense of community, (2) nourishing their total wellness, (3) boosting self-confidence and a positive self-image, and (4) improving socialization skills rooted in wellness principles.
