As the CEO of Launch, I am excited to celebrate our 45 years of service in the Seattle community. I believe child care is essential to not only the children and families in our program, it is also imperative for economic stability and community vitality. Without Launch's early learning, school age, and summer programs, many families would not be able to work and/or attend school. The children in our programs are also provided with enriching learning and social emotional skill building that positively supports their development. I am honored to be a part of the Launch community. I hope you will join me by making a financial contribution to our great work and celebrating with me at our virtual event!
