Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children’s Health

What is LAUNCH?

LAUNCH Manchester logo

LAUNCH is designed to connect you with resources and services to help support your child’s growth and development. This program is offered at no charge to all Amoskeag Health patients with children 0-8 years of age.

LAUNCH is a clinic-based program, which means our "LAUNCH Navigators" work directly with parents and caregivers to discover and navigate local resources for childcare assistance, food access, housing assistance, and more. We provide referrals and set up ongoing support to make sure you have everything you need.

Just a Few of the Many Reasons You Might Enroll in LAUNCH...


You want to access resources that are available to you and your family

You have children 0 - 8 years of age



You are new to the community

You want to connect with other families in Greater Manchester


No matter the reason, if you're seeking connection and support as a caregiver of children eight years old and under, we're here for you. Interested in more information?


Ready, Set, LAUNCH!
