Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Family Services, Human Service Organizations, Human Services, Neighborhood Centers, Youth Centers & Clubs

Mission: All Peoples Community Center (All Peoples) is an all-encompassing neighborhood center whose mission is to provide social services and programs that empower individuals and promote community, respect and self-determination for all.

Founded in 1942, All Peoples has served as a true safe haven, and a beloved and trusted place for low-income children, youth, and families in South Los Angeles for over 75 years. Started prior to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950’s-60’s, All Peoples Community Center was a revolutionary concept as described in the organization’s 2008 Strategic Plan: “All Peoples is a non-profit, non-sectarian community center located in the very spot where it was originally founded in 1942 – in South Los Angeles. All Peoples has made incredible strides since it was first envisioned… as a place in the inner-city where people from all ethnicities, races, and religions could unite under one roof to share a vision for a stronger, more self-reliant community and to help turn the dreams of struggling local youth & adults into reality. At a time when de facto and de jure segregation were still an everyday reality in Los Angeles, the establishment of All Peoples, a multi-ethnic and multi-racial community center, was not just path-breaking, it was revolutionary.” Originally launched by pastor Dan Genung as a mission center of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), All Peoples evolved and was incorporated as a separate entity from the church in 1966.

Today, All Peoples provides a myriad of social and educational services to more than 6,600 people per year in its 20,000-square-foot center located in a residential area of South LA’s Vernon-Central neighborhood, immediately south of downtown Los Angeles. Services are designed to achieve the following goals: to help children succeed at each stage of development; to strengthen and support individuals and families and build community; to prevent violence and crime in the community and the home; to address the root causes of gang involvement; to provide job training and create job opportunities; and to help seniors stay active and engaged.

All Peoples is a vibrant hub of activity for children, youth, and families six days a week, year-round. Services include licensed extended day childcare, after school programs, academic tutoring, a computer lab, summer camp, summer jobs, workforce development and career assistance, financial literacy and education, parenting classes, domestic violence support groups, food distribution, a community micro-garden, a senior volunteer program, and more. These services are intentionally designed to address poverty and educational needs, which are the root causes of challenges such as gang involvement and crime in the community.

All Peoples Community Center is a shining example of what local, surrounding and faith communities can accomplish, together. Its longtime efforts have served, supported and cared for needs at a grassroots level. Since its inception, it listens for ways it can meet unmet needs, creating services and providing donors / volunteers with opportunities to foster change in the city. In my short time, as a board member, following in the steps of my predecessors, I believe our faith tradition has been enriched and enlivened everyday by our historical and integral supports of APCC. We are proud of the tangible ways, APCC helps serve the children, youth, young adults and the whole family in the community. It is a beacon!

I am so grateful to have been apart of the All Peoples Community Center team for a whole year now! All Peoples has a variety of resources available to individuals and families that range from food, clothing, and hygiene products to counseling, youth programs, and financial case management. This organization values self-determination and is led by selfless and hardworking individuals who devote themselves to promoting community empowerment and helping community members persevere through difficult times, especially throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. I am fortunate enough to have learned and worked directly alongside the Executive Director, Saundra Bryant, as well as the FSC Director, Julio Ramos and countless other staff during my time as a Counseling Intern and in my temporary position as Housing Stability Advisor for the Homelessness Prevention Program. With the help of generous donors, organizations like All Peoples Community Center can continue to operate in low-income communities and do the essential work of helping create stronger and more self-reliant individuals and families.

All Peoples is an exceptional organization in no small part due to the street cred it has earned from 79 years of service to the community. An amazing amount of critical work gets done, very effectively and very efficiently, because community members trust Saundra Bryant and her team to do the right things the right way - highlighted more than ever by All Peoples' delivery of vital new services throughout the COVID19 pandemic. In my six years as a board member, I have never been prouder, but I can't say I'm surprised. Nice job!

APCC has been a pillar of the South LA community since its inception in 1942. In my dual roles as a community member and board representative, APCC has always supported countless children and families in our community, and I continue to be inspired by their leadership and caring staff.

I am very proud to be a part of the All Peoples Community Center organization. Our South LA community was devastated by COVID-19 and we were able to adjust our services to best assist during this time of great need. To give some perspective:

● 33% of our families do not have access to the internet for youth to attend virtual school or complete their homework.
● 77% of individuals have lost at least half of their income.
● COVID-19 caused a food insecurity increase from 57% to 76%.
● From March 20, 2020 to March 2021, there were 10,980 reported cases of COVID in the community served by All Peoples - a population of 51,998.

All Peoples helped provide for those needs by giving access to WiFi and devices onsite for those in need, distributing the LA City-funded Angeleno Card for additional income to families, expanding our food distribution service and partnering for grocery delivery, and becoming a temporary vaccination site.

We are proud to continue to provide Real Solutions, Real Heart, and Real Service to South LA!

My experience with All Peoples Community Center has been a very informative and the center is all about helping anyone in the community. I was helping the youth department and I learned working on clerical duties. I had the opportunity to work with the youth at the center and meet staff that helped train me throughout my volunteering hours. If I had a question I was never put down or turned away, I immediately got help. Helping the community is their 1# priority and just finding any way to provide the services.

My experience with All Peoples Community Center goes back many years. As a teenager, I was able to take advantage of the programs and one of them, was what was at that time called Teen Camp. It was the first time going away from the inner city. We went to Yosemite for camping for a week. We were in Wonderland, hiking up to the falls, sleeping in tents and cooking our meals outside. To this day I can remember it like it was yesterday. That is just one memory that remains fresh in my mind. There are many more. All Peoples Community Center create these types of memories for so many children that may never have opportunities to get away. There are so many more programs now to help children and adults.

For over 75 years All People Community Center has been improving the lives of people in the South LA community. That's 75 years of support, encouragement, advising, engagement, growth, and sustenance that has helped thousands of people in hundreds of thousands of ways. There is no apt metaphor for the Center; it's a gem, it's an oasis, it's a remedy, it's a haven, but in so many ways it is simply "magic." It represents the magic of what happens when people discover that there is a safe and welcoming place their whole family can go to find the support they need to grow and thrive. And now, after much effort by the staff and the community, All Peoples is even better and stronger than before. Just in the past year, they've opened up a brand new playground and a beautiful Community Farm, they've remodeled the gym, made crucial infrastructure upgrades, and increased their staff size. This means that more people are finding the help and support they need than ever before. Congratulations All Peoples Community Center on 77 years of service, here's to many more years to come!

There is not enough I can say about the value that All Peoples Community Center provides to the surrounding community. The Center has something to offer to all individuals at every stage of life. There is a full-service day care, after school programs, and an alternative high school, college prep programs, job training, legal and immigration services, food assistance, a working micro-farm, computer training, financial planning programs, on-site full-time social workers, domestic violence and gang remediation support, sports programs, and exercise classes, book fairs, and health fairs, and summer camps for kids and families, and a Senior Volunteer program. The list really does go on and on. And they have been serving the community in this way for 76 years and counting!

No one does the work of bettering the lives all people than All Peoples Community Center. Margaret Mead once said, that we should "never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." The individuals who work and volunteer at All Peoples prove this to be true; they change the world by changing people's day-to-day lives, by providing opportunity where there was none, and by insuring that anyone who needs assistance can find it there. I am thrilled and honored to be a part of their organization and to help insure that the Center can continue to provide services to the South LA community for another 76 years or more.

I have been involved as a volunteer and/or Board Member with the All Peoples Community Center for almost 30 years. I have seen first hand the enormous positive impact the Center has had on some of the City's most dis-advantaged residents. The Center provides a number of valuable services including daycare, a food bank, parenting classes, back-to-school events where school supplies are provided to students and a safe after-school environment for students from the nearby middle school. It is considered one of Los Angeles' best kept secret and was recognized in a newspaper article as one of the institutions helping to reduce childhood hunger in Los Angeles.

I've served on the Board of All Peoples Community Center for almost four years. This is a community center truly dedicated to the community, run not by outsiders but by input and hard work by the families who take advantage of the services as well as that of the staff. It's all about empowering the people in the community to have the best possible future.

Despite the impact of the economic downturn and drastic cuts to funding the staff remains upbeat and determined to provide the same quality of services the community has come to expect over seventy years - day care, after school tutoring, parenting classes, summer camp, food distribution, the annual health and resource fair, and so much more.

I can advise this program to people that have trouble with applying for college or a job or even help with homework. This program has helped me by all the work I have or all the times I got confused with homework. With times that I have to type in work all I do is go to their computer lab and work on it.
