Launch Youth

Launch is a Hobart-based shelter for male youth (13-20yrs) who are either homeless or troubled by mental health issues. As a medium to long term home for these young men, it is the only such shelter in Tasmania.

Launch also caters for high and complex needs clients including youth detention alternatives. Launch operates one 6-bed “high care” shelter where all residents initially stay with 24/7 supervision, plus two 2-bed “independent living” units for residents who are ready for transition to semi-independent living.
