Lizzie’s early childhood was wrought with abuse and neglect. Lizzie found herself homeless at sixteen. She struggled to graduate high school. Since moving to The Launch Pad, Lizzie obtained her high school diploma, enrolled in college, she has been working two jobs, saved and bought her first car. Lizzie is currently working towards better independent living skills (staying organized, meal planning and healthy living). The security and safe community Lizzie has gained through TLF has empowered and encouraged her not to give up on her dreams. She has become a leader at The Launch Pad, welcoming new residents and volunteers to our family-based community.


Lizzie is currently working toward her pre-school certificate and works at a local retailer. Your donation goes towards helping Lizzie cover costs of rent, education needs and other household supplies as she works and is in school.
