Kenneth Hill

Kenneth 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 produced success at home, in business and in the community.

Kenneth 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. He 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, he retired from The Home Depot and founded The Launchpad Foundation to provide transitional housing, life skills and career training for homeless single mothers.

Mentorship and the power of exposure have been paramount in Kenneth’s development and he seeks to provide the same opportunities to those in his sphere of influence.  Kenneth launched a partnership with the 100 Black Men of South Metro and local schools to address childhood literacy.  The program (We Read Together) encourages family reading time and closes the gap for third grade milestone achievements. The program started at Adamsville Primary School with 25 students in 2017 and has expanded to other schools and a population of over 200 students.

His faith in God, community activism and desire to serve the community have played large roles in his life. Kenneth embraces leadership opportunities and advocates for those whose voices are not heard. Kenny is a Life member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. as well a Board member of The 100 Black Men, South Metro Chapter. He is married to Clarisa and they have two daughters. Kenneth is living his dream and is striving to help others achieve their dreams
