We are a unique charity that is home to the 1st self-injury support group in NJ that began in 2005. In 2006, we were officially registered as Launching Point, a 501(c)3 charitable organization that serves as a self-injury support & resource center. In 2014 we started a talk show, Share Your Scars. We have an online store with inspiring & encouraging sayings on buttons, wristbands, stickers, and lanyards. We also offer support groups to overcome self-harm and body-focused repetitive behavior.
Launching Point (Love More Judge Less) is a mission of love; simply put, we are committed to helping people overcome self-inflicted violence through support groups, outreach, and volunteering. We provide a safe environment where people can feel a sense of belonging, be inspired, and be around others who are on a similar journey. We are excited to announce that we move back to Boonton on March 1st to a storefront at 1017 Main Street!
Launching Point believes that every person matters, has hope and that every person is part of the puzzle In this thing called life. Our purpose is to devote our time and efforts to providing awareness, support and resources to adults who struggle with self-harm, as well as to share our positive message (on small products).
We take our convictions and turn them into action; if you are interested in being part of a great cause, send us a message. While we do have a handful of volunteers who are committed to our cause, our current festival crew comprises of 4 people.
If you would like to donate to our cause, and help toward ongoing expenses, please know that your donation will fund our mission in our community and beyond. You can donate a one-time gift or sign up to donate monthly.
