Jonathan Vergara-Diaz, FamilySource Financial Coach

Favorite Food: My Mom’s Enchiladas Rojas

Favorite Color: Royal Blue

Favorite Sports Team: Los Angeles Dodgers

Favorite Animal: Dogs

Favorite Quote: “Persevere, don’t give up. Tough times never last, but tough people do.”

How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: All Peoples Community Center is a place where people and families go to learn about resources and participate in programs that can be beneficial to them. The staff is here to advocate and serve the families of the community. The center has a large array of social programs that stretch from food program, youth programs, financial coaching, to adult education programs, just to name a few. These programs exist not only to benefit clients short term, but to encourage clients to become self-empowered through their participation at APCC. If a client seeks a program we don’t offer directly, we are happy to provide them with the information of a place that can be of service to them.

Favorite Part of Your Job: I enjoy working with families to identify resources and opportunities that can be beneficial to them. I also really enjoy seeing clients progress towards achieving their goals and seeing them become more confident. I enjoy acting as a support system to guide clients in the right direction and be their cheerleader throughout the process.

My best All Peoples story: My favorite All Peoples story is the annual Thanksgiving Dinner that we have for the families of the community. The reason I really enjoyed that event is because I think the epitome of the holiday season is breaking bread with family. During the Thanksgiving dinner we had tables full of families small and large, spending time with each other, while also coming together with other families and having a meal together. Seeing community members converse, laugh, and eat at the event really made me happy to be a part of it and I’ll never forget that experience. I felt like APCC threw a huge family dinner for the community and this was just another way of warmly welcoming our families to celebrate the holiday season.

Hobbies: Fishing, Barbecuing, and spending time with my family.

Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent: I know how to play the Viola.

Me in 3 Words: Joyful, Analytical, and Humble

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.

Let’s get to know Michelle Blanco, FamilySource College Ambassador (pictured far left with Youth Coordinator Erika Gonzalez and Accounting Assistant Genesis Ramos):

Favorite Food: New York steak and fries

Favorite Color: Yellow

Favorite Sports Team: Dodgers

Favorite Animal: Dogs

How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: If I could describe All Peoples, I would say the center is a place I wish I knew about as a child. I also wish my grandparents knew about All Peoples for my mother and her brother. All Peoples gives to the community in so many ways that sometimes it honestly gets me emotional. Providing Thanksgiving dinner to families, gifts to families during Christmas, school supplies for our college freshmen, etc…it is wonderful knowing we are making a difference and helping make memories in families lives.

Favorite Part of Your Job: My favorite part of my job is helping students prepare for college. Helping high school seniors with their FAFSA applications and guiding them to pursue a higher education makes me happy because I know that I took little part in our students’ success.

My best All Peoples story: My best All Peoples story would probably be making a poster about what our students wanted to be when they grow up. It took a lot of effort to take photos of the children individually. It is nice to go through the hall and see that they have dreams for themselves, and I actually hope to be able to give them those photos later on before they leave the center so they can look back on it.

Hobbies: I love reading poetry and I love playing volleyball with family and friends, we get very competitive as a family and have even considered getting volleyball jerseys for our teams.

Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent: Fun fact about me is that I’m left handed, and I have taught my dog 7 tricks.

Me in 3 Words: I am a Disney fanatic, math person and pen collector.

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

Let’s get to know Diana ParaAll Peoples Community Center’s FamilySource Intake Assistant and After-School Youth Coordinator for Washington 702:

Favorite Food: BimBimBap, Korean Dish

Favorite Color: Blue and Violet

Favorite Animal: Sloth

Favorite Quote: “Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We Keep Moving Forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

How would you describe All Peoples Community Center:  I would describe All Peoples as a place where no matter who you are, they will provide help. All Peoples is a home for the community and for the people who work here.

Favorite Part of Your Job: My favorite part of my job is the new work techniques I am learning from everyone. I am slowly opening up to new experiences and learning more while at the job. I also enjoy getting to interact with the kids and watching them learn as well and be a part of community events.

My best All Peoples story: During our Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner, I worked as a lead server, making sure that the other volunteers and I got food to the tables where the families were being seated. I remember this event more because I was put in charge at one point by helping lead the volunteers to where they needed to go and making sure that we were working together as a team. At the beginning, it was very stressful because communication was not the best at first and there was not really a system yet on how to keep track of which tables had been served food. Once there was a system in place, it went smoothly, and I was proud of myself because I was more vocal with directions. I am a very introverted person, and I am not really one to tell people what to do or to speak up. So, the fact that I was speaking up and helping the volunteers is something that I am proud of because it showed me that I can lead a team.

Hobbies: Reading, Painting, and Coloring

Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent:

I want to travel around the world in the future. I also want to learn more from school and be successful to help my family.

Me in 3 Words: Kind, Open-Minded, and Easy-Going

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

Let’s get to know Kristie Gonzalez, All Peoples Community Center’s FamilySource Case Manager:

Favorite Food: Sushi

Favorite Color: Green

Favorite Animal: Elephant

Favorite Quote: “Men of quality are not threatened by women of equality.”

How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: All Peoples is a place to help the community. It is a place where clients can seek help on a variety of things from food, to youth programs, to housing related services. And if we cannot help immediately we will find resources or direct the client elsewhere where they can seek the help they need. Point is the client does not leave feeling like they were not helped or wasted their time. It is a place where clients can feel safe and feel supported.

Favorite Part of Your Job: My favorite part of my job is being able to help clients whether it is something big or small. It is hoping to make a difference and alleviate some of the stress a family or client may be going through. Also, being able to provide clients with resources that they may not be aware of. I also enjoy being able to encourage clients that their dreams are possible and achieving their goals is possible. Sometimes all it takes is a little push or someone that believes in you.

My best All Peoples story: My favorite All Peoples story is when I gave my clients their holiday presents in December. I could tell Mom’s spirit was low and I could tell she felt defeated because of everything she had been going through. Parent thought she was not going to have presents to give to her children that holiday season. I know it really meant a lot to her and her children. We cried (tears of happiness of course).

Hobbies: Dancing, Hiking, and Traveling

Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent: I use to Polynesian dance and perform.

Me in 3 Words:Feminist, Smart, and Honest

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

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

Let’s get to know Ulises Alegria, All Peoples Community Center’s FamilySource College Ambassador:

Favorite Food: Korean BBQ, Pupusas

Favorite Color: Orange

Favorite Sports Team: Dodgers

Favorite Animal: Sea Turtles

Favorite Quote: “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why­­­­­­­­­­­­­­.”

How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: All Peoples is an amazing place for the community and its employees. It is a diverse and fun work environment that strives to encourage and assist the community in a positive manner. It helps youth strive to reach their academic goals and assists them in every step of the way. All Peoples is truly an amazing place with spectacular individuals.

Favorite Part of Your Job: My favorite part about my job is helping students and seeing a smile on their face when they see that their problem got fixed/solved. I also really enjoy working on the creative work I do like the College Tour flyers and the posters I make with my co-worker Michelle Blanco.

My best All Peoples story: My best story would probably have to be when I introduced myself at my first staff meeting. I honestly did not know how to properly introduce myself, and I was sweating buckets. Every time a staff member would finish and get closer to being my turn, I would start getting more nervous and anxious. I don’t even remember what it is that I said when it was my turn, but I’m sure I stuttered and messed up a couple times. To top it all off later we were put into groups and had to present on a certain topic, and I was chosen to present along with Deisy and I was super nervous. I debated many times to just say I needed to go to the restroom and just stay there, but I knew that wasn’t an option and had to face my fears. In the end it wasn’t as bad as I thought, and every single staff member was welcoming and friendly which is what I love about All Peoples.

Hobbies: I enjoy drawing both on paper and digitally. I also like reading manga, watching anime, photography, and hanging out with my friends.

Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent: A Fun Fact about me is that I was a police explorer in 11th Grade. It’s like a police scout of sorts. We would do mock scenarios, learn police codes, and we would volunteer in city events.

Me in 3 Words: Happy, Creative, and Shy

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

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.

A Message from our Executive Director Saundra Bryant:

The All Peoples After-School “Tomorrow’s Leaders” Program currently serves approximately 279 students ranging from 1st – 12th grade. Services are offered onsite at All Peoples as well as Dunbar Village, Adams and Central, Casa Figueroa and Washington 702. All program locations operate Monday through Friday from 2:30 pm – 6:30 pm.

The structure of our All Peoples After-School “Tomorrow’s Leaders” Program allows ample time throughout the week for healthy snacks, academic assistance, recreational activities, and social development. Student performance throughout the year is monitored by collecting report cards and giving students a pre and post-test in math and reading using the STAR assessment program.

Based on reports, 67.5% of our students showed an increase in their reading level by minimum of a full point and 23.7% of the students maintained the same reading level. In math, 77.6% of our students showed an increase in their math level and 15.7% maintained the same math level. Staff’s main focus is to consistently work with students to improve in the areas in which they are lacking academically. Staff maintains a constant and close relationship with the school, teachers, and parents in order to help improve the student’s academic performance.

For 2019, we will start highlighting our All Peoples After-School “Tomorrow Leaders” Program by featuring a “Youth of the Month” on our website. The Youth recognized for the Month will showcase their experience in the All Peoples After-School “Tomorrow’s Leaders” Program by posting pictures and stories on our All Peoples Instagram Page using hashtag #TomorrowsLeaders. We encourage you to support our Youth by following them on Instagram as we empower them to be the change that they want to see in their schools and community.
