Meet Miguel. Miguel Angel Romero Cruz is a 17 year old YouthSource Participant who credits his close knit family (Mom, Dad, and siblings) for setting a strong example of resiliency, cooperation, support, organization, leadership, and teamwork. Miguel sees and understands the harsh struggles his parents face on a daily basis, and it’s his parents that inspire him every day with their display of resiliency from the strength of his father to work countless nights to his mother raising him and his siblings. He’s also grateful for his siblings who have mentored him and offered academic tutoring throughout his childhood.

Because of family support and Miguel’s hard work, he’s been able to achieve all A’s since 9th grade to his culmination in June 2019 from Thomas Jefferson High School. On his high school diploma, there are three seals that bear the fruition of hard work, commitment, family support, prioritization, attitude, and goal-orientation. Miguel was the Class Valedictorian of Thomas Jefferson High School and feels that his success is his families as well. Miguel’s LAUSD official grade point average since his early years to his graduation was 4.3. Miguel appreciates all of his teachers at Thomas Jefferson High School that taught him that barriers are not meant to be an excuse to give up, but are meant to be surpassed.

Miguel is currently working at a summer paid internship with BuroHappold Engineering and Consulting Co as a MEP (Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical) Intern with diverse roles; modeling mechanical equipment, rerouting pipework as well as ductwork on floorplans, viewing and managing floor plans, and exploring sustainability and data input. As part of Miguel’s role in BuroHappold, he takes in data from client buildings to assess the level of indoor quality of a building’s air and utilities as well as the thermal comfort of its occupants. The portfolio of projects he has worked on include a number of universities, museums, and office spaces located in California among other states as well. Miguel loves working as an intern at BuroHappold, and has developed great relationships with his Supervisors and Administrators which he now considered mentors: Ms. Kathleen Hetrick, Ms. Sara Kingman, Mr. Lucas Lieberman, and Ms. Lorena De La Cruz. Miguel hopes to pursue a career in the engineering or STEM field, and with Miguel’s natural determination, he’s well on his way.

Let’s get to know Yessenia Villacorta, All Peoples Community Center’s FSC Case Manager:

Favorite Food: Aguachiles

Favorite Color: Black

Favorite Quote:“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: Since 1942, All Peoples has been a place of opportunities and empowerment. We are a team that dedicates our time to uplift families by providing them with tools and resources. Our families are self-determined to make their own choices, and we encourage them to complete their goals. We provide a range of services and programs for the community to educate and empower our children, individuals, seniors, and families in the community. All Peoples is filled with opportunities for a multicultural South Central Los Angeles community.

 

Favorite Part of Your Job: My favorite part of my job is when our clients achieve their personal goals. In our Citizenship Class, I get to see individuals study Civic questions and learn about U.S. History. Most importantly, I get to celebrate their accomplishments after they pass their citizenship exam.

My best All Peoples story: My best All Peoples Story is from December 2018 when APCC provided Holiday presents and donations to families in need. The families and youths were able to provide wish lists. Although they were not promised everything on the list, it was a rewarding feeling, seeing the families receive items like a microwave, clothing items, and Holiday presents for their children. Smiles, hugs, and tears of joy were shared within the families. We made Holiday wishes come true that day and it was a beautiful experience. Thank you Animo Jefferson Charter Middle School for the support you provided to our families.

Hobbies: Hiking, dancing, listening to music, and traveling

Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent: In my freshman year of high school, I joined the swim team without knowing how to swim. Not only did I have to learn how to swim but I also had to learn all the strokes. I eventually learned freestyle, backstroke, and butterfly stroke. I improved on my backstroke and was able to compete in a national level.

Me in 3 Words: Adventurous, Driven, and Determined

We’re so happy that Yessenia is part of our All Peoples Family!

We would like to thank W.H.Y. for their support and for this opportunity to bring more services to our youth, families and community.

In addition to computer lab, members of W.H.Y. continue to be active contributors to the Center.

The Pico Robinson Lions’ Club was introduced to All Peoples in 1947. A lady from Wilshire Christian Church approached Bob Brunner, President, of the Lion’s to purchase a tricycle for the daycare program. She only had $5.00. Big hearted Bob Brunner heard the story and decided to give her the tricycle, two wagons and a Christmas tree for the children at All Peoples.  This was the beginning of the relationship between the Pico Robertson Lions Club and All Peoples.

In 1959, Bob wrote “For 11 years with Lions my happiest assignment was Chairman of the All Peoples activities. Starting with the wagon donation each year our Christmas parties have grown and now we provide 395 presents, apples, oranges and candy with one of the Lions playing Santa Claus. We donated a $2,000 carry–all Station Wagon (remember the year was 1950). We assisted the children to attend Dodgers and Rams games. Finally, we are donated $650.00 for the furnishings in the daycare.” Bob further stated that “It is a feeling of great satisfaction being a Lion”.

While the Pico Robertson Lions Club no longer exist, beginning in 1987, All Peoples has been adopted by the L.A. Host Lions Club and they have continued to support our youth through the Lark Ellen Foundation. They also support our health fairs with vision screenings. Thanks to Dr. Fredy Perez and all the L.A. Host Lions.

FamilySource Center Data Intake Specialist Michelle Watson shares a note illustrating the self-determination of FSC Client Deja Snowden.

Meet Deja Snowden. Ms. Snowden, FSC participant since March 2019, originally came into All Peoples seeking emergency food. During Ms. Snowden’s intake, she brought her 2 month old son who is the motivation behind all her success. Ms. Snowden was able to effectively voice her employment, housing and educational goals.

A note from Deja Snowden: “Thanks to Data Intake Specialist Michelle Watson at All Peoples I’ve accomplished so much! I have a new sense of self-confidence, and I’ve paved my way to success. I went into the center putting others needs before the needs of me and my child. Thanks to instructions and a referral from Michelle Watson to the TSE program I now have a job training position with the County of Los Angeles, and I am ready to obtain permanent housing. I was able to complete a Financial Literacy course that helped me understand my finances, make better use of my money and credit, and increase my credit score. I was able to file my income taxes for free, and I got back so much money that I saved some to help me move out when the time is right.

All Peoples has provided me and my child with so many resources like food, clothing and diapers that I will forever be grateful. Through Michelle at All Peoples I’ve been given the tools to go back to school which is something I’ve been on the fence about for a long time. I just want to thank Michelle and everyone else who made it possible to provide the services that are the reason for the success I have today. Michelle is currently helping me find permanent housing and enroll back into school.”

Pictured left to right, FSC Client Deja N Snowden, Ms. Snowden’s son, and FSC Data Intake Specialist Michelle Watson.

FamilySource Center services are available at All Peoples Community Center year-around.

In the beginning All Peoples established youth clubs. It was an opportunity for team building, leadership development, and explore beyond the neighborhood. One of the clubs is the Monarchs. The Monarchs leader is James Thomas. James grew up in the neighborhood and he and family attended the Center programs. James was a youth worker during college and eventually went on the work for the LA County Sheriff department. Since retirement James continues his community involvement. He and his partner Marc provide educational and life skills parenting classes across the county.   In maintaining his connection to All Peoples more than 30 years ago the Monarchs began meeting, reconnecting to talk about the growing up at All Peoples, stories, family, life, work and lessons learned. The group members are in their mid-60’s but the bonds established in their youth still remains.  One of the memories which they all enjoyed was going to Camp Joe Ide. They have supported All Peoples Camp scholarships every year for more than 30 years. Recently they invited Saundra “Sandy” Bryant and her husband Leo to join them for their annual dinner at Hop Lings restaurant in Chinatown.
