El Paso Project LAUNCH is pioneering new ways to promote young children’s wellness through community collaboration. The program is working to support and link providers and parents to services that help our children reach their potential in every way. The target: children from birth through age 8. The goal: for all children to reach physical, social, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive milestones, because healthy growth in each of these areas prepares children to thrive in school and beyond.
The El Paso Project LAUNCH has formed a Young Child Wellness Council to engage key players across the child-serving system. The Council convenes early childhood partners to integrate and coordinate programs, policies, data, and funding. It joins with families and public and private partners to scan communities and pinpoint unmet needs. The Council meets monthly on the last Tuesday of every month at 9:00 am. We meet at the El Paso Center for Chidren Multipurpose Center located on 2200 N. Stevens, El Paso, Texas 79930.
