Free Tax Prep LA

Last month our All Peoples Executive Director Saundra Bryant attended a Free Tax Prep LA event with Mayor Garcetti, Los Angeles County Board Supervisor Hilda Solis, LAUSD Board President Monica Garcia, and other organizations across Los Angeles County to remind families about FREE tax assistance and tax credits available to help them this tax season.

Outreach continued on March 15, 2019 as All Peoples offered free tax preparation at the Vernon-Branch Library. All Peoples IRS-Certified Staff assisted 17 community members with tax preparation refunding $19,530.00 during the event. That is an average of $1,148.82 per client!

All Peoples Community Center staff appreciate the hospitality provided by the Vernon-Branch Library. We look forward to continuing our partnership and collaborating on future events for the community of the Vernon-Branch Library.

For more information or to make your Free appointment, please contact Jesse at (213) 747-6357 ext 119 or delacruzjesse@allpeoplescc.org. Make sure to ask about Cal EITC!

Prefer to handle taxes on your own? You can still do them for free! If your household earned less than $56,000 in 2018, you can file both your federal and state returns for free using MyFreeTaxes.com.

All Peoples – Meet Our Team – Genesis Ramos

Let’s get to know Genesis Ramos, All Peoples Community Center’s Accounting Assistant:

Favorite Food: Tamales

Favorite Color: Yellow

Favorite Sports Team: Dodgers

Favorite Animal: Dogs

 

 

Favorite Quote: “We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take you.“

How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: All Peoples is a place filled with hope and possibilities. Every person coming into the center looking for help receive the best care that the dedicated staff have to offer.

 

Favorite Part of Your Job: My favorite part of the job is knowing that in a small way I am helping make a difference in people’s lives. The center has taught me many things, but I am forever grateful for being a part of such an inspiring organization.

My best All Peoples story: My favorite All Peoples moment would be at the Health Fair of 2018. My job for the event was to take pictures, and I had a really great time doing so. While I was taking photos, the kids wanted to interact with the camera. Many kids put on their biggest smiles and posed for their picture to be taken. It was truly inspiring to be holding that camera and capturing such pleasant moments. I was able to get some beautiful shots of staff and children.

 

Hobbies: Dancing, Reading, and Netflix (lol)

Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent: I don’t like to brag or anything, but I do know my way around a dance floor. I preferably like to dance to hip hop, but if there’s good music playing, you’ll see me on the dance floor.

 

 

Me in 3 Words: Soulful, Spirited, Compassionate

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

EVERYONE IN

All Peoples is honored to support United Way of Greater Los Angeles’ Everyone In Campaign to help end homelessness!

“All Peoples Community Center is all in because daily we work with individuals and families who are in need of housing. They have few options available and are seeking shelter in their car or sleeping on the streets. We encourage all Angelinos to show compassion, because many of us may be just a paycheck or medical emergency away from homelessness.” – Saundra Bryant, Executive Director of All Peoples Community Center

Real Solutions and Service to South LA

Susana Gonzalez received assistance through the Vernon-Central / LATTC WorkSource Center and now gets to pay it forward.

Meet Susana. Susana Gonzalez came across the services provided at the Vernon-Central / LATTC WorkSource Center mid- January 2019. Susana is a bilingual Adult participant who was seeking employment related to her Bachelor’s degree completed in Social Welfare and Disabilities Studies in December 2018. Susana enrolled in the WorkSource Center and was assigned to All Peoples Career Coach Mario Calderon. After enrollment, Intake Specialist Lourdes Gomez reviewed Susana’s expansive involvement with her community and assisted her with a lead to a job fair recruiting case managers. Immediately after orientation, Susana attended the recruitment event.

Shortly thereafter, Susana was offered a Client Services Coordinator position at The Chrysalis Center. She then agreed to the full time employment offer and is now assisting others in the same position she was in when she first began seeking employment by developing their interviewing skills and resumes to attain employment. Susana is a great example of using the resources available in her community to network and gain skills necessary to attain employment. As many students coming out of college may understand, finding work immediately after graduation can be a challenging and daunting task. However, Susana quickly used her resources and established strong connections in order to better her chances of employment.

The WorkSource Center is proud to have assisted Susana in both her endeavors of helping others in her community as well as achieving financial stability in an industry that is both fulfilling and related to her field of interest. Susana is now actively working with Career Coach, Mario Calderon, in an effort to continue her involvement with her community by empowering the under-served youth of the Greater Los Angeles area to follow in her footsteps in using the resources available to them to better their future.

WorkSource Center Career Coach Mario Calderon

Mario currently holds weekly WorkSource Recruitment Readiness Workshops, Interview Technique Workshops and Job Fairs to give clients an opportunity meet employers with opportunities in various fields.

If you’re 18 or over, please contact Mario at (213) 763-5961 or mcalderon@allpeoplescc.org for more information regarding the services available.
