The Parenting After Loss program runs eight weeks in length and is a support group for parents and guardians, as well as their children, following the death of a parent or sibling. The community support and care received in this program is built specifically around the emotional and practical reactions to tragic loss within a family unit. Kenny Slaught points out that via participation in the program, families master the tools they need to communicate with each other and effectively grow stronger as a group after experiencing the loss.
The ground-breaking order built during the American Great Depression period was constructed between 1931 and 1936, at a cost of $49 million dollars, explains Kenny Slaught. The dam was originally known as Boulder Dam, but was later transformed to Hoover Dam to honor then-President Herbert Hoover and his significant contributions to the completion of this unusual project. It stands at 221 meters in height, is 379 meters in length, and contains more than 35.000 cubic kilometers of total capacity, allowing more than 4.2 billion kWh2 per year of power.
