Community members, donors, volunteers and staff came together to start building a new Community Micro-farm across the street from All Peoples in an empty lot donated by Meta Housing Corp.

Lot at 847 E 20th Street (across from All Peoples) – BEFORE

Throughout 2018, All Peoples in partnership with American Friends Service Committee’s (AFSC) Root for Peace worked on the Community Micro-farm. The site started as an empty parking lot. Gravel was removed and replaced with soil, raised beds were constructed, the site was mulched, and the raised beds were soiled. Several fundraisers were also held throughout the year for each building phase.

Lot at 847 E 20th Street (across from All Peoples) – AFTER

On November 21, 2018, The Community came together to celebrate each other and give thanks for the work that the Community has put into building the farm. Community members made homemade mole, calabaza batida, yucca, and more! A special Thank You to Crystal Gonzalez at Roots for Peace (AFSC) who has led the charge in building our new Community Micro-farm and keeping our Community healthy. *

Our College Corner Advisors work closely with our Youth to make sure that everyone knows that “College is Possible” regardless of their socio-economic status. Throughout the year, College Advisors held various College Readiness Workshops. The workshops are designed for High School students of all grade levels. Topics include: A – G requirements, Individual Graduation Plan, AP Courses, SAT and ACT, and extracurricular activities. These are essential high school requirements to successfully graduate and transfer to a college or university.

All Peoples Youth visited several college and universities to tour the facilities. Our College Advisors guided them on tours where they were able to learn about campus history, admission requirements, financial aid and more!

All Peoples Youth had an opportunity to attend an informative workshop with EOP Counselor Ramon Muniz. EOP is an Educational Opportunity Program for students in the college level. Mr. Muniz discussed grant opportunities and academic support services available for students. College Corner Advisors also held the Workshop: “Got Accepted To College…Now What?” for Youth and Parents to help prepare High School Seniors who’ve been accepted to College. Topics discussed were College Life, Deadlines, Scholarships, Student Loans, Housing, Clubs and Student Government.

In November 2018, Community members came together for #GivingTuesday, and raised $4,000 for our Youth. Donations will be used to assist Youth with College Books, Tours, Transportation, Supplies, Workshops and Application Fees. Thank you for believing in our All Peoples Youth and supporting their goals and aspirations!

Thanks to our wonderful Community members, All Peoples has won a 2018 Top-Rated Award from GreatNonprofits!

Here’s a few quotes from our Community Members:

“It’s hard to find a nonprofit providing more services for people in need. All Peoples is consistently and successfully building essential support systems to create a self-sufficient community. I’m so proud to be a part of this amazing organization!” ~ cgalligani

“Gracias por ayudar me y a mi familia. Este centro se siente como un familia. Doy muchas gracias por mi manajadora de caso.” ~ wemalop12

“I usually don’t write reviews for anything or anyone, but this was different. This organization has helped my family so much when we were in need. We have looked for help in so many places to no avail. My case manager Hilda is like Heaven sent. She has helped up with supplies for my husband’s job, provided books for the kids, and a lot of other services. I have never been to any place where all the staff are genuinely nice and helpful. I am thankful for all the help and the people that we have met.” ~ Anonymous

“APCC has many resources. They have a very welcoming and positive environment. Young passionate community activists and advocates helping all that come for any assistance. This is a must use one-stop shop for all families in need of resources and support.” ~ Diana

“All Peoples Community Center is one of the best resources for the community, they have services for the entire family. I had my son in the Summer Program and they kept him busy not only with academic work, but also with field trips. I am very thankful for a place like this where our children are safe and learning.” ~ flormarl
