YOUR IMPACT:

“All Peoples is my second home. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be here without them…from making me stay on top of my grades to donating transportation. Give back to the community is a concept I greatly learned from All Peoples and that is what I wish to do always.” – Crystal O., 2017 GivingTuesday Recipient currently attending Humboldt University

Because of how you assisted me, I will be able to help others in the future too.” – Anthony J., 2017 GivingTuesday Recipient currently attending Cal State University Los Angeles

I hope to not only repay you, but my community as well. ” – Steve C., 2017 GivingTuesday Recipient currently attending Middlebury College in Vermont

 

“I’m thankful that All Peoples was there when I needed them most. I now have peace of mind, and I can focus on my classes instead of the resources I lacked. My family and I thank you…I will never forget how you helped me.” – Mateo A, 2017 GivingTuesday Recipient currently attending Los Angeles Trade Tech

Miguel Orozco and Margarita Ramirez

Miguel Orozco and Margarita Ramirez are on the path to opening an independent contractor business and purchasing a home.

Meet Miguel Orozco and Margarita Ramirez. The couple has been married for over 10 years, and are raising three young boys in South Los Angeles. In May of 2018, Miguel and Margarita enrolled in All Peoples’ Spanish Financial Literacy Workshops. During the workshops, they were educated on financial topics which includes: budgeting, savings, banking products, credit building, investments, and the “how to” avoid identity theft. Currently, the couple are receiving financial coaching sessions and recently enrolled in the IDA program.

Miguel and Margarita are working on two financial goals: 1) support to establish an independent contractor business, and 2) purchasing a home. Miguel has already submitted his paperwork to become a license contractor. Miguel and Margarita are mono-Spanish speakers, and due to language barriers, they requested support from both their FamilySource Center case manager and financial coach to help interpret and change their business from a Limited Liability Company (LLC) to a Corporation (Co.) status. Currently, Miguel and Margarita are waiting on their submission results. In addition, both are seeking additional services at All Peoples such as: CARECEN services; and FamilySource Center’s College Corner to obtain college preparation workshops for their children.

With assistance of our All Peoples and FamilySource Center staff, Miguel Orozco and Margarita Ramirez are on the path to opening an independent contractor business and purchasing a home.
