LAUNCHING PAD INC
January 31, 2011

I came to the Launching Pad from prison, with no where else to go. The staff at the Launching Pad made me feel welcome and excepted me for who I was and not for what I had done. They made me feel like a regular person who had a purpose in life and helped me in every thing that they could. Because of the Launching Pad I have been able to clean and sober, have been able to help others in thier recovery, have been able to find full time employment, and been able to make contact with my family and build a relationship with them. I am a firm believer in the Launching Pad and in it's mission. I am supporting the Launching Pad in volunteering my time in any way that I am able. The staff, volunteers, residents of the Launching Pad have made a me feel like a new person who has a purpose in life and has given me a positive direction to go in. To all of them all I can say is Thank You and may God Bless them all.
