LAUNCH Together (the Initiative) was designed to improve social-emotional and developmental outcomes for Colorado’s young children and their families. A unique partnership between Early Milestones, eight Colorado-based foundations, five counties, and the Butler Institute for Families supported community prevention and health promotion practices and builds coordinated systems. LAUNCH Together was inspired by the outcomes of Project LAUNCH, a national effort of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
Early Milestones served as the lead agency for this multi-year initiative. We championed the work, provided technical assistance, and advanced state systems coordination.
