Kenny Hill is a natural leader who has always had a passion for helping people. At an early age, he learned the importance of serving others and giving back. This outlook has allowed him to achieve success at home, in business and in the community.
Kenny was raised by a single mother and is the eldest of seven children. As a child, he worked hard to help his mom and support the family. Kenny worked at The Home Depot to pay his way through college and received his Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of California, San Diego. After 30 years of service, Kenny retired from The Home Depot and he and his wife founded The Launchpad Foundation to provide housing, life skills and career training to the homeless.
His faith in God, community activism and desire to serve the community has played large roles in his life. Kenny embraces leadership opportunities and advocates for those whose voices are not heard. Kenny is married to Clarisa and they have two daughters. Kenny is living his dream and is striving to help others achieve their dreams.
From 2015-present, our Launch Pad Foundation has provided Affordable Housing for homeless and single mothers, provided Mentoring and Literacy Development for at risk students, provided Community Clean-ups where 5-tons of debris has been removed from roadways, green spaces, and creeks, and provided Police Precinct Facelifts.
As a District Manager with The Home Depot, Kenny established the proven ability to work with and lead large teams of individuals who may have vastly different opinions, but came together to deliver timely solutions in situations often viewed as “near impossible.”
From supporting our first responders who keep our community safe, to community clean up drives to improve quality of life and to establishing reading programs in our schools to promote literacy and education. Kenny Hill doesn’t just talk the talk, he walks the walk.
