Project LAUNCH is designed to impact and serve children aged 0-8. In Louisiana, the project is currently being implemented in Lafayette, Acadia, and Vermilion parishes.
Project LAUNCH (Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children’s Health) is a national initiative that is being piloted in Louisiana. It is coordinated by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals by the Bureau of Family Health of the Office of Public Health in conjunction with the Office of Behavioral Health, and funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
The aim of Project LAUNCH Louisiana is for all children ages 0-8 to reach social, emotional, behavioral, physical, and cognitive milestones. In addition to providing direct care services, Project LAUNCH states and communities increase knowledge about healthy child development through public education campaigns and cross-disciplinary workforce development activities.
