Kenny Slaught explains that Hospice of Santa Barbara provides a compassionate care services both to individuals facing terminal and chronic illness, as well as their loved ones. Many of the programs at the organization are directed at the needs of children as they struggle with the impending or recent death of a close family member. About 20 percent of children experience the passing of a loved one before they turn 18, and one in 20 children must face the loss of one or both parents during their childhood. Hospice of Santa Barbara provides individuals in these situations with free support programs to help them cope with grief to avoid or mediate depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
As a supporter and active member of the UCSB Foundation, Kenny Slaught has recently posted on his blog at KennySlaught.com that “The University of California Santa Barbara announced on May 26, 2016 that it is a Grand Challenges Explorations grant winner.”
The plan propagated by Kenny Slaught will cause the upkeep of the antique character of physical building while also providing for sophisticated enhancements. Furthermore, through fortifications like seismic renovations, both the building and the tens of thousands of pieces of art inside will be better safeguarded. The plan will lead to a rise in gallery space by 25 percent to make the museum even more core to the Santa Barbara community. In short, the renewal project is the mpost concentrated effort ever begun by the museum.
Keen backer of the Santa Barbara’s heritage and arts, Kenny Slaught has promised his benefaction towards the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s “The Image More” campaign by highlighting it on his blog at KennySlaught.com. The Santa Barbara Museum of Art plays an amazing part in the local community by providing educational programs and relating residents and visitors to truly brilliant works of art. Presently, the museum has launched a big restoration project that includes the launch of the Imagine More campaign, an exhilarating fundraising effort that will provide for superior gallery area, more community space, necessary updates to the building, and a unique experience. The museum hopes to raise $50 million in capital to reach these ambitions through the Imagine More Campaign.
