Marina and Rosa Chavez

“I feel that my sister and I are two different people and yet, we have the same dream of opening a business one day. Perhaps, together, we can make that happen.” –Rosa Chavez

Marina and Rosa Chavez are two sisters living in South Los Angeles. In October 2017, the Chavez sisters enrolled in All Peoples’ FamilySource Center: Spanish Financial Literacy Workshop. The Chavez sisters graduated and received a certificate of completion from the workshops. The sisters were able to open their first savings account through the Individual Development Account (IDA) Program also referred to a our Matched Savings Program.

Soon after, the Chavez sisters enrolled in All Peoples: Financial Coaching Program. The Financial Coaching sessions provided the Chavez sisters with guidance and resources revolving around their financial needs: savings, budgeting, identify theft prevention, business development, among other financial subjects.

In the month of April, the Chavez sisters were able to both achieve their savings goals of $1,000 ($2,000 considering the Matched Savings Program). Currently, the Chavez sisters are interested in registering for the California Department of Social Services (CDSS): Child Care Licensing and Orientation Program. However, due to their financial constrains, they are not able to pay the enrollment fee. Nonetheless, All Peoples’ FamilySource Center has offered the sisters the opportunity to pay for their orientation and licensing in support of their dream to one day own a childcare business. As of now, the Chavez sisters are in the process of enrolling for the next upcoming CDSS’s Child Care Orientation in June 2018.

With assistance of our All Peoples and FamilySource Center staff, Maxine and Rita C are on the path to a successful career opportunity.

Senior Appreciation Month

May is Senior Appreciation Month.  In honor of Mother’s Day and Senior Appreciation Month, All Peoples wants to celebrate our Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) participants. We appreciate their dedication and service to our Community.

If you are 55 and over we need your help! RSVP uses your skills and wisdom to make a positive difference in the lives of others.  As part of RSVP, Senior Volunteers help tackle tough issues in our South and Southeast Los Angeles Community.

Senior Corp volunteers overwhelmingly report that life was better than before they began to volunteer. Volunteers looked forward to each new day and gained pleasure from daily activities. They felt they had a purpose in life, had a sense of accomplishment, and felt they were making a positive difference in others’ lives. Volunteers also reported being very satisfied with program staff, their assignments, and with their station site supervisors. To summarize, studies indicate:

  • Participation in Senior Corps programming does result in quantifiable changes to factors that lead to improved satisfaction with life among its Volunteers.
  • Participation enables volunteers to satisfy both basic and self-actualizing needs that lead to improved life satisfaction.
  • Senior Corps appears to be an effective means for providing Volunteers with opportunities to contribute to the meaning and enjoyment of their lives; therefore, participation in the programs can be an effective method for improving the quality of life for elder Volunteers.
