Meet DC Doer, Laurin Hodge of Mission Launch



Laurin Hodge is the President & Executive Director of Mission Launch, a reentry organization that helps rebuild lives after incarceration. Laurin's passion and drive came from when she had a personal family experience and recognized she had to do something to help others who also have gone through very similar experiences.

Four years ago, Laurin and her mother, Teresa, began the journey to bridge a gap to restore trust that has been broken (because trust has been broken on both sides), and together they make every effort to see people be rehabilitated to full citizenship. Laurin creates conversations that extend borders in both Baltimore and DC desiring to make a region ready to break down walls that have caused separation. Her heart is to make reentry an easier, less painful process, and to show others how it can be.

She says, “It has been a rocky journey, seeing people make difficult choices in life, but I am confidant and know I have made the right one for me." #DoersDoTell
