Florida Project LAUNCH

Through the Florida Department of Children and Families and the Florida Department of Health, Florida Project LAUNCH promotes the wellness of young children ages birth to eight and their families. Its pilot community, Lealman Corridor and surrounding areas, consists of five ZIP codes in Pinellas County. Within the pilot community, 19% of individuals live at or below the poverty line. Children and their families experience many early childhood developmental risk factors, such as limited services, high crime, substance use, domestic violence, and child maltreatment. Florida Project LAUNCH is committed to improving screening, assessment, and referral services for families in need. It strives to strengthen the infrastructure that provides these services, including supporting the collaboration between providers and agencies in Lealman Corridor.
