All Peoples Senior Food Delivery Service

Since March 2020, COVID-19 health and safety concerns have left many of our senior clients homebound and without access to food. A lot of our seniors are unable to depend upon friends or family to pick up food from our Supplemental Food Program. To assist seniors in this unprecedented time, All Peoples has launched our All Peoples Senior Food Delivery Service.

The Senior Food Delivery Service is designed to supplement families’ food supply, to promote healthy eating habits and to connect people to needed services and information. The program launched this past month, and staff is currently delivering food to 40 homebound seniors per week. The program is projected to reach delivery service for 300 seniors a month by December 2020. This is another way that All Peoples is providing Real Solutions, Real Heart, and Real Service to South Los Angeles.

COVID-19 Didn’t Stop Him: All Peoples Community Center in partnership with CRCD Vernon-Central/LATTC WorkSource Center Offers Employment and Training Assistance During A Pandemic

Adrian Mora is a 22-year old Latino male who currently attends the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College and was made aware of the Vernon-Central/LATTC WorkSource Center through the signage he saw across campus. Adrian discloses he had been unemployed since 2018 by personal choice as he wanted to focus this time and energy on his academics. However, with the demands of our current economic situation Adrian decided he needed assistance finding a job and attended an orientation back in February 2020. He was deemed eligible for the WIOA Adult program and was assigned to All Peoples Career Coach Angel Garcia for one-on-one assistance.

It was during the initial consultation that Adrian brought in his resume and it was apparent he had a prior history in law enforcement, particularly, working as a Cadet for the Los Angeles Police Department. Career Coach Angel worked with Adrian to identify his strengths and weaknesses, as well as his goals and objectives. He particularly assisted Adrian in revamping his resume and cover letter. It was just a matter of time before Career Coach Angel helped Adrian enroll in the Safe and Secure Environment Assessor training in order to help establish himself in a new line of work.

As of August 2020, Adrian began working as a Security Professional with Allied Universal Security Services. Adrian is glad he was able to obtain an employment position during a time when it seemed impossible. He shares, “I am grateful to my Career Coach for providing very good interviewing techniques because I needed help with that. I am also grateful for obtaining my guard card which helped me land this job opportunity.” Adrian is a great example of using resources in the community to gain the skills needed to obtain employment and live a self-determined quality way of life.

A Message from our Executive Director Saundra Bryant:

Dear Friends of All Peoples,

It is challenging to write this letter because I have so many emotions going through my head. My heart breaks for the family of George Floyd. We all watched in horror his death at the hands of one police officer. Equally egregious were the three onlookers who were sworn to “protect and serve” George Floyd and did nothing making them equally complicit in his death. The frustration and anger that I feel are due to this not being an isolated incident or an anomaly. It has become a common theme across this country as we witness the deaths of African American males and females. This most recent incident is forcing our country to take off the blinders and acknowledge the issue that has been ignored far too long.

Systemic racism does exist in this country, and as long as we refuse to accept the reality and work to dismantle the evil, we will continue to see protests of some kind. It is racism that maintains a status quo of policies and structures that are bias against African Americans and people of color. As long as we continue to keep our heads in the sand and ignore the pain and suffering that is right in front of us, we as a country will stay on the path to implode.

I believe in non-violence. I don’t want to see the burning and looting or the National Guard in my City. At the same time, I don’t want to see any distraction from the message calling out for change, accountability, and recognition that “Black Lives Matter.” The dignity and respect for all people have been a consistent value of All Peoples. We stand in solidarity, calling for an end to the systemic racism in this country. We call for it now, not in the future, because we have been waiting for too long.

I have served as a member of the Community Police Advisory Board for more than 20 years. I have worked with more than seven captains. Most encouraged community members to speak out if officers fell short of professionalism that the badge is supposed to represent. I also understand that it is essential to revamp the policies and call out those instances of racial profiling and seek justice that is equitable for community and law enforcement.

WE MUST ALL SEARCH OUR CONSCIENCE AND CONSIDER WHAT OUR NEXT ACTIONS WILL BE. “IF NOT NOW, WHEN? IF NOT YOU, WHO?”

Sincerely,

Saundra Bryant

Executive Director

Dear Friends of All Peoples,

We were sad to hear of the passing of Rev. Tom Norwood on Easter Sunday. Tom was the first Executive Director of All Peoples Community Center. In 1964, the church and the center separated their finances and each established separate Boards of Directors. The Community Center incorporated and called the first Executive Director. Tom was a minister and held a degree in social work. During his tenure, the Center experienced Watts Riot 1965, fire in the main building, vandalism, and thefts. We experienced the growth of hiring the first social worker to help families to navigate the social service systems within the county. Tom brought in resources to help the Center thrive.

1973, in the first quarter of college, I was given three days to move out of the dorm because my financial aid was canceled. My Mom went to Tom Norwood and secured a loan from the center so that we could locate housing and I could continue my education. Tom responded without hesitation and I was able to stay in school without interruption. I will always be grateful to Tom and All Peoples for being there when our family was in need.

Tom’s vision for a building campaign in the ’70s is the reason for the main building we have today. He knew that the Center had outgrown its facility and that to continue to serve the community we would need a new building. It took nearly 10 years, but in 1982 the dedication ceremony was held.

As a teenager, we did not see Tom as much as the other staff. Upon taking over the position of Executive Director I understand why he was often absent. Tom was dedicated to finding the resources and doing whatever had to be done to keep the center going. He was telling the story of All Peoples, ensuring staff was taken care of, being the liaison to the Board. I am certain other Executives of agencies understand the demands of the position.

Tom has been one of my role models for my calling of 36 years. I am honored to have known him and followed in his footsteps. Our condolences go out to his family his wife Nancy, sons Tom II and Jeff. His story will remain a part of the legacy of All Peoples.

Sincerely,

 
Saundra Bryant
Executive Director

Councilmember Price’s New 9th office, in partnership with the Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), the Housing Rights Center (HRC) and All Peoples Community Center, conducted special workshops on the Emergency Renters Relief Program.

The subsidy program assists individuals and families who have received one or more rent increase notices totaling more than 8 percent since March 15, 2019. The temporary financial assistance was established to prevent tenant displacement for non-payment of rent through Dec. 31, 2019 until The Tenant Protection Act of 2019 went into effect starting Jan. 1, 2020, shielding renters from future excessive rent increases.

All Peoples will continue to work with City of Los Angeles Residents regarding illegal rent increases.

Meet Kevin. Kevin, 25, attended All Peoples After-school “Tomorrow’s Leaders” Programming throughout his childhood. As a former YouthSource participate, Kevin was awarded the opportunity to internship at J2 Global, a tech company based in Los Angeles. Kevin describes the internship that is bringing him one step closer to his dreams:

“At J2, I assisted my supervisor in installing software, setting up monitors, and performing other IT duties. The skills required was patience with learning new computer information since it is a lot of material to soak in. I also needed to use my initiative to gain more knowledge about technology and computers.

Dylan was my mentor. He is a genius when it comes to computers. He was very patient with me and took the time to answer all my questions and teach me everything step by step. [During the internship] I assisted Dylan in fixing computer issues such as uninstalling or installing software or imaging computers. My goal is to get my Associates in Photography or English, my Bachelors in Political science, and my Masters in Public Administration. I want to become CHRO (Chief Human Resources Officer) of Disney or a huge company some day. I also want to buy my first house in 5 years. At J2, I met many great people with different skills, and I learned more about computers than I expected to.”
