Project LAUNCH (PACER)
(Serving: MN, KY, OH, IN, WI, WV, IL, MI)
For transition-age youth and young adults with disabilities, success often depends on having the right services in place to support employment, education, and inclusion in the community. Fortunately, there are laws that help.
Through individual assistance, workshops, resources, and more, Pacer Center's Project LAUNCH helps youth and young adults with disabilities pursue meaningful careers, live as independently as possible, and enjoy inclusion at work and in the community.
LAUNCH Partners' Developed Resources
These resources were developed in 2022 by Project Launch's partner Parent Training and Information (PTI) centers under contract with PACER Center.

Project LAUNCH Partner Resources - PACER Center; Resource Management for Foster Children - This Resource Guide from the Michigan Alliance for Families helps with asset mapping activities in the community. Youth and young adults with disabilities exiting foster care often lack knowledge, resources, and a relationship with an adult to guide them in establishing their own home, continuing their education, and finding work. This resource can help.
