Salvador’s Second Chance

For Salvador,  LifeLaunch gave him the chance to start over.

Salvador’s manager Ted looked beyond his past and gave him a job as an E-commerce Clerk for Already, his job has brought a shift in confidence and instilled purpose in him.

In the same way that Salvador takes pride in his job, many others have found purpose and support from the LifeLaunch GO program.
