Favorite Quote/Saying: “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”
How would you describe All Peoples Community Center?: All Peoples is a place that doesn’t believe in turning people away. It assists everyone who enters through their doors and is the place that people turn to whether they are experiencing difficulties or want to be exposed to brand new experiences. It provides people with new opportunities that will serve as life skills and memories.
Favorite Part of Your Job: Interacting with community members. As a first-generation, I can relate to several of the people I’m outreaching. I see myself and my parents in each family that I speak to, and that’s what fuels my drive to raise awareness about available resources.
My best All Peoples story: It’s difficult to pinpoint one specific story as a favorite. As outreach coordinator, I have the opportunity to engage with clients before they begin receiving services at All Peoples. My best All Peoples stories happen every time I see a client that I met while outreaching, walking through our building and receiving services. I see these clients participating in classes, workshops, and several programs and it all started with a simple, “Hello, have you heard of All Peoples Community Center?”.
Hobbies: Writing, walking my furbaby, watching horror movies, and being a couch potato every now and then.
Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent: I have some training in boxing.
Me in 3 Words: Ambitious, Considerate, and Persistent.
We’re so happy that Jennifer Santos is part of our All Peoples Family!
