Mayor Garcetti Visits All Peoples

All Peoples would like to acknowledge and thank Mayor Eric Garcetti and Hollywood talent lawyer Matt Johnson (pictured with All Peoples Executive Director Saundra Bryant) for visiting All Peoples and showing their support for the Center and its community members.

“There’s a huge sense of urgency to try to mitigate the level of suffering that people are going to endure through this crisis,” stated Matt Johnson, whose team has raised more than $40 million for the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles. Mayor Garcetti, through his Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles, is currently providing meals to isolated senior citizens, providing personal protective equipment for those who can’t afford it, and giving direct financial assistance to people who are living in poverty and have lost income due to the pandemic.

How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: APCC is a center that serves the community by providing help, advocacy, resources, and important information.

My best All Peoples story: Shortly after become employed at APCC, I started to case manage a family that was living in a temporary shelter, they had become homeless after suffering some unexpected financial hardships. It was June 2019 and the family’s primary goal was to improve their housing situation by obtaining permanent housing. The same day I enrolled the family into case management, I received an email of a housing opportunity that was sent by an APCC staff member. I informed one of the family members about it and his mother came into the center the next day to fill out the housing application. Fast forward two months, in mid-August 2019, the family was notified that they were selected to be interviewed for the available unit. The family was diligent in following up with the housing opportunity and completed all the requirements that were being asked of them. In November 2019, the family successfully moved out of the temporary shelter and into their brand new apartment. The family continues to participate in case management services and in APCC events. They remain extremely grateful to APCC for the connection to what is now their home.

Hobbies:My hobbies include running, abstract painting, creative photography and hiking with my family dog, Shylo.

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

Let’s get to know Karina Basurto, All Peoples Community Center’s Dunbar Village Youth Coordinator:

Favorite Food: Enchiladas

Favorite Color: Blue/Turquoise

Favorite Sports Team: Club America (Mexican soccer team)

Favorite Animal: Panda

Favorite Quote:“Nature doesn’t hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”

How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: In my words, it is like home. It is an inviting place that really helps out the community. Most staff members are willing to go above and beyond to help out families. A loving and caring place.

Favorite Part of Your Job: My favorite part of my job is watching students excel in all areas. The smile they have on their faces when they are having fun, finally understand their homework, or learning how to do something new is the best thing of my job. The reaction they have when they thought they would never finish their homework and when they realize they did it, they jump up in excitement. The excitement they show when they learn to cook something new and realize it is not as hard as it seems.

My best All Peoples story: My best All Peoples story is when a grandma of one of the children from the After School Program came up to me and opened herself up to discuss family issues that were going on at the time. It was a family of 3 children and they were all enrolled in the After School Program. She had the trust to tell me about it and told me to look out for changes in their behavior and that she knew they might want to misbehave. She told me about it so that we could work together to help them understand the situation and let them know that it was not an excuse to misbehave. That people will be understanding but not tolerant to everything. She told me to help her out by seeing their behavior and if they did misbehave for me to let her know. By working together, we would help them through with the problem, we did and the children are well off. This motivated me and made me realize the impact we have in the children’s life and the real difference we could make to help out families.

Hobbies:Reading and baking

Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent: I like to experiment and try new things. If I do something wrong, I will strive to do it better no matter what.

Me in 3 Words: Patient, caring, and hardworking

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

A Message from our Executive Director Saundra Bryant:

Dear Friends of All Peoples,

COVID-19 has taken our reality and turned it upside down. Every day and sometimes every few hours we are listening to the news, reading the internet, talking to friends and family trying to understand and prepare for changing times. In the 1965 Watts Riot, All Peoples remained open. In the 1992 Civil Unrest, All Peoples remained open. In 2020, with the Coronavirus All Peoples has remained open. We are serving the community by appointments only to maintain the safety of staff and our neighbors. Each Friday we are still distributing food to community members, especially those who may not have any other resources. Since the crises began we have been distributing food to nearly 200 families per week. You may contact us at (213) 747-6357, Monday – Friday 9:00 am – 5:30 pm for services.

We also appreciate the support received to keep up with the demand for services. The Pacific Southwest Region (DOC) was one of the first to call and respond with additional assistance. Many of our donors have also increased their gifts. Our foundation funders have responded with the flexibility to make changes in our programs to meet the ever-changing needs of our community.

Many of our staff are telecommuting staying in touch with our youth and families to determine how we can be of assistance. The staff of All Peoples are my Heroes/Sheroes because they are committed to being there for our families. We could not accomplish the goals that we have achieved without their support. Remember them when you sitting down with your family. If you are a praying person, please keep our staff in your prayers.

Our pledge of Real Solutions, Real Heart and Real Service is made possible because of you. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Saundra Bryant

Executive Director

Did You Know? In 1978, a school district in Sonoma, California, organized a Women’s History Week as a way to teach children about some of the important women who made an impact on the world. These students and teachers had no idea their presentations of essays, poster boards, and a parade of school children would turn into a national month-long celebration, but it did. Now, every year schools, organizations, and communities around the country use the month of March to honor the influential women who have helped shape our world today.

As you celebrate the 32nd annual Women’s History Month, take inspiration from the origins of the holiday. Look to the women who have inspired you to become involved in your community. Whether that’s encouraging other women in your workplace or volunteering with an educational program for girls, women supporting women is what it’s all about.

The picture is from a meeting held at All Peoples in 1969. The topic of the meeting was re-zoning. These women residents knew that their voices needed to be heard. Together their voices provided input to civic leaders as they grappled with rezoning and its impact in our neighborhood. Today All Peoples continues to be that gathering place for women in M.E.J.O.R, Best Start Metro L.A.- San Pedro/All Peoples Leadership Group (NLG) to hone their skills and work together to improve the quality of life in their community. Like the women in 1969, they are our unsung heroes. All Peoples salutes all the women who are trailblazers in the community.
