Connecticut Elm City Project LAUNCH (CT-ECPL) is committed to high-quality early childhood systems focused on families who care for children ages 0 to 8 in the New Haven Community. New Haven has one of the highest rates of childhood poverty in the nation at 34.1%. The Dwight neighborhood is the city's most densely populated area and contains a high proportion of over-burdened, under-resourced families. CT-ECPL aims to decrease racial and gender disparities in access to mental health screening and evidence-based services for low-income African American and Hispanic mothers.
