Did You Know?
In 1990, John Wooden, former NCAA Basketball Coach, joined “The Fund for All Peoples” to help rebuild the All Peoples Daycare after the October 1987 earthquake as well as expand Youth and Family Support Programs at All Peoples. John Wooden is famous for his successful career as the basketball coach with the most NCAA championship titles, and his inspirational speaking using his “Pyramid of Success“. “Every youngster deserves a chance in this great, although imperfect, world, and All Peoples provides that for many as well for families.” ~John Wooden, 1990
We would like to acknowledge Mr. Wooden for his great service to South Los Angeles, and for his help in continuing the legacy of All Peoples Community Center.
