FamilySource Center Data Intake Specialist Michelle Watson shares a note illustrating the self-determination of FSC Client Deja Snowden.

Meet Deja Snowden. Ms. Snowden, FSC participant since March 2019, originally came into All Peoples seeking emergency food. During Ms. Snowden’s intake, she brought her 2 month old son who is the motivation behind all her success. Ms. Snowden was able to effectively voice her employment, housing and educational goals.

A note from Deja Snowden: “Thanks to Data Intake Specialist Michelle Watson at All Peoples I’ve accomplished so much! I have a new sense of self-confidence, and I’ve paved my way to success. I went into the center putting others needs before the needs of me and my child. Thanks to instructions and a referral from Michelle Watson to the TSE program I now have a job training position with the County of Los Angeles, and I am ready to obtain permanent housing. I was able to complete a Financial Literacy course that helped me understand my finances, make better use of my money and credit, and increase my credit score. I was able to file my income taxes for free, and I got back so much money that I saved some to help me move out when the time is right.

All Peoples has provided me and my child with so many resources like food, clothing and diapers that I will forever be grateful. Through Michelle at All Peoples I’ve been given the tools to go back to school which is something I’ve been on the fence about for a long time. I just want to thank Michelle and everyone else who made it possible to provide the services that are the reason for the success I have today. Michelle is currently helping me find permanent housing and enroll back into school.”
