I'm proud to see the impact that All Peoples creates in the surrounding community. Every single person on staff, starting with the Executive DIrector, Saundra Bryant to the volunteers, works tirelessly day in and day out to make a difference in the community. Their dedication & commitment to the community is admirable and serves as a great example of what a great nonprofit should be like.
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.
77 years of greatness at All Peoples Community Center!
It's hard to find a nonprofit providing more services for people in need. All Peoples is consistently and successfully building essential support systems to create a self-sufficient community. I'm so proud to be a part of this amazing organization!
I am very appreciative towards all the staff in All Peoples especially with Ilda Morales. There are very few people like her and Noel Lopez. Thank you for all the sevices you have provided for me and my husband.
Gracias por ayudar me y a mi familia. Este centro se siente como un familia. Doy muchas gracias por mi manajadora de caso.
It's a great program full of services and a safe place for my children to come after school and the summer. extremely friendly staff.
This is a great place for the community. They assist all individuals here, there is food, computer classes, ESL Classes, afterschool program, many more.
Great resource for community.
This non-profit helped me and my family when we needed food. They have many services that help everyone in the community. I don't know what we would do without their help.
I continue to support this organization because my family received services many years ago. we enjoyed going to camp and having a place where people really really care. So many people have benefitted from the services, I hope more people will decide to give back like I do. I know the center could use the resources.
Los trabajadores de All Peoples siempre hacen todo lo posible para ayudar las familias. Me gusta ser parte de un centro que nos hace sentir parte de la familia. Gracias por todo la ayuda y servicios.
ALl PEOPLES COMMUNITY CENTER is a great org with a lot of programs for families around the area. My son attended their summer program and he had a blast. I also felt comfortable knowing he was somewhere safe with friendly staff.
E recibido ayuda invaluable en esta organización sin fines de lucro, asesoría financiera, moral, comida, presentación de impuestos, asesoría para migración y todo este apoyo y asesoría totalmente gratuita y personalizada
Such a great place. Its in the middle of a large neighborhood and is even starting a garden! They offer varieties of help such as english learning, financial help, and even have an after school program for the kids.
I usually don't write reviews for anything or anyone, but this was different. This organization has helped my family so much when we were in need. We have looked for help in so many places to no avail. My case manager Hilda is like Heaven sent. She has helped up with supplies for my husband's job, provided books for the kids, and a lot of other services. I have never been to any place where all the staff are genuinely nice and helpful. I am thankful for all the help and the people that we have met.
Staff is friendly and passionate about helping the community. There is always something to do at APCC.
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 have been involved with All Peoples for over 20 years because I can see how dedicated its staff is to positiviely changing the lives of the people it serves. The Center offers many services that help families and children, including after-school activities, food-bank operations, Summer camp, and gang prevention programs. I am very honored to be associated with an organization that's doing so much good in Los Angeles.
All Peoples Community Center is one of the best resources for the community, they have services for the entire family. I had my son in the Summer Program and they kept him busy not only with academic work, but also with field trips. I am very thankful for a place like this where our children are safe and learning.
All Peoples siempre a sido un lugar muy especial para mi y mi familia! Ellos siempre estan dispuestos a ayudar en lo que necesitamos. No solo se preocupan por los individuos pero tambien por el resto de la familia.
I love All Peoples!!
Since I arrived at the center I experienced the energy of the staff, happy and joyful. There are so many wonderful things going on for the community that the staff works extra hard to make it easier for the families to get resources. Everyone is welcome and that feeling you can get once you step foot in All Peoples Community Center!
When in time of need for my family All Peoples Community Center was there to help us. They provided us with free food and helpful workshops that helped us cope with life situations.
There's always so much going on at All Peoples that it shows they want to help one and all! The vast amount of resources available to all make it a safe-haven in South Central LA & the genuine love with which they serve is unparalleled.
APCC is one of the most amazing and life-giving non-profit support service agencies in Los Angeles! Through their care, services, and support to so many in our community, lives are changed, young people discover a meaningful future, and hope is given to those in need. APCC has tireless staff who go over and above to provide necessary services to care for some of the most vulnerable in our communities. I am proud to be a part of APCC!

I had the opportunity to work for All Peoples Community Center as an Afterschool program coordinator from 2002 to 2005. It was my first job with a non-profit community organization and I loved my time there. I worked with the young promising students on their paths towards completing their high school education. I am still friends with many of the young people who went through the program during those years and am proud of them for their achievements. All Peoples Community Center is a shining beacon of hope for many young people facing daily challenges in South Central Los Angeles.
I must say the name All Peoples Community Center says it all. I have been in other so called Community based non-profit organizations and truthfully I've been disgusted. They state their a non-profit yet they will turn away clients, not provide services and aren't for the community. Yet All Peoples is totally the opposite they will go above and beyond to ensure that the clients receive all the services they may need. No one is ever turned away. All Peoples has done so many great things for me and my family. It's truly a blessing to have a Great Non-Profit Organization like All Peoples Community Center.
Thank You! All Peoples Community Center
I can just say is one of the best Nonprofits Organization in South LA area.
All Peoples influenced my life as a teen and the lessons today are the same as they were then, love one another and respect All Peoples. The mission and the community is better for All Peoples being there.
APCC is a highly respected and effective organization serving South L.A., and it is led by one of the most dedicated leaders in the Los Angeles nonprofit sector. APCC provides vital support and opportunities for youth, families and seniors in need, and the APCC staff is known for its warmth and heart. As a colleague organization, we appreciate APCC and love partnering in service. Thank you Saundra Bryant and all the great APCC staff for your exemplary leadership and all the good that you do every day.
All Peoples has long been committed to its neighborhood. All Peoples uses its resources to build community among neighborhood residents, volunteers, staff and donors. It is a genuine partnership among all of those involved, respecting the integrity, social circumstances, ethnicity, gender and age of all. It works in relationship to other entities, from health services to police and educational institutions.
I work at AADAP and many of our clients and many of my friends have benefited from the wonderful programs here. The staff is caring and hard working and the environment is nurturing :)
I volunteered an entire summer at All Peoples Community Center with their youth and teen programs. A highlight for me was the week we took the children to a weeklong camp in the San Bernardino Mountains. I took vacation time to repeat my volunteer service in subsequent years. All Peoples staff are first rate in creativity and in their sensitivity to the people they serve.
All peoples is a home for everybody, all the staff is always willing to help you, you fell welcome every time you walk in, everybody is very friendly, they really have a great heart to help everybody.
All peoples is a place where whether or not they have the means to help, they still help! It is a place where no one is turned away no matter what their circumstance is. APCC is a save haven for many children, low income and at risk youth, homeless people, and many more participants. Apcc also offers a wide range of services including an after school program, domestic violence classes, parenting classes, an RSVP program and many more adult and family services! Thank you APCC for all your hard work and dedication to the community.
All Peoples is the home away from home. The staff and the Executive Director are always willing and ready to assist clients with any type of needs.
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. The kids in the day care and after school tutoring program are always smiling and the women in the support group visibly overcome the difficulty of the past, demonstrating courage and self-confidence.
I'm constantly surprised at the quality and extent of the services offered by the dedicated staff of All Peoples Community Center. The leadership is still committed to the founding vision - lovingly and respectfully meeting the specific needs identified by the residents of the community. 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 love being on-site and seeing the smiles on the faces of the clients, from preschool to adult.
One of my favorite nonprofits in Los Angeles. Truly community-focused, collaborative and responsive to needs. As community demographics have shifted over the years, All Peoples has shifted its programming accordingly. You see the same staff faces year after year because it is such a positive place to be, with an amazing spirit. An organization that really lives up to its name.
All Peoples Community Center offers various programs for individuals without any restrictions including but not limited to income, language, race/ethnicity or age. Some programs offered by All Peoples Community Center are therapy, after school programs, food bank, and parenting class at low to no cost. The staff is friendly and helpful. The staff provides referrals to other community agencies who will be assist the individuals if All Peoples is unable to provide the services. This is a truly a NON- profit agency that empowers the residents in the community as indicated in their mission statement. It was fulfilling to volunteer in this agency and know I helped the agency as well as the individuals in the community.
Well I come to this program for help with my homework and to ask about future jobs that I can apply to or so I can focus on that point. 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.
i have been attending the after school program since I was a little kid and what I like about this place is that i can do my homework, play basketball with my friends in the gym.
All Peoples is a center where the staff members help out any person no matter their economic status, religion, or ethnicity. It is a good place to go and have a good time. You meet friends that could be consider your best friends!!!(in the long run).
I have been pat of All peoples since 1994, they help my family so much, now a'm proud to be part of the All Peoples's family, this is my second home, right here I have my second family. This is a safety place for youth to stay, they can have help in the After School Program, where they can do their homework, have fun and have friend.
" Everybody is welcome to the Center"
All peoples has changed my family's life since 1994 when we started coming at the center to take English classes.Then we start as volunteers, and my children started coming to the after school program , they helped my 3 kids to much , and since that time until now we are part of the All peoples family.
All peoples is a program that helps kids at any age.This program helps on their learning skill and their homework. It a great program that help and rise your grades up and a place were you can do your community service. The thing I like is the people that help you and support you.
I come to the after school program in all peoples and its a good after school program because we do our homework and they help us in our homework .
I think that this program is the best thing that i have been to and this helps me do my homework and i get
a lot of help and i also have fun in all peoples. I barely got here and it was fun and i hope more people come to all peoples because you will have fun and learn and find best friends.
Well Honestly I Would Like To Say That All Peoples Is An Afterschool Program In Which My Parents Force Me To Come..
I Honestly Dont Like Coming Here But I Cant Do Anything About It..
It meets it's expectations it really gets you to talk to others and get involved in a lot of things like gardening and holiday activities and it really helps you with your homework.
This is my second home away from home. I feel very comfortable at this agency and support its mission 100%. I truly believe in All Peoples.
I found this great organization, when my younger sister graduated from High School. That was in the year 1998. Since, then I really liked the organiztion that would offer so much for the surrounding area. I am so proud to be a member of this great organization, that treats everyone that walks through its door with so much respect. I live by that and cannot wait to see how far this great non-profit will continue to serve the the area that is under represented here in the great city of Los Angeles.
When I was unemployed, they helped me with putting food in my house. They impressed me so, much that to this day, I am one of the faithful volunteers. This small organization helps so many of the community in south central. Volunteering here you will find so much resources, that will and can help the community in obtaining some help when it is needed. I am very happy that I practically stumbled into this great organization, and continue to still call them with any questions, or help that I may need!
It's extraordinary what this small yet impactful organization does to meet the important needs of the community. This is truly a local, neighborhood center that reaches out to youth, families, and seniors with an understanding that only one who's grown up here can attest to. Indeed, Sandy, the executive director, was an All Peoples member as a young girl, and has the heart of a champion.
Being part of All Peoples is a life changing experience. I am a Social Work intern here, and I feel honored to serve this agency. The staff is always very respectful and helpful to clients as well as myself. Many clients lives have changed for the better. They have all created a connection with each of the staff member that helps them. Changing someone's life for the better is the best gift the staff can get.
I have been working in education for about 15 years now and I have to say that this center has a strong backbone; communal love. It's the immediate and genuine love that people in this center have for each other. The family from ALL Peoples Community Center have a fundamental drive; motivation. I have seen the motivation that many of the staff members have for each other and for others that are naturally welcomed. I love to see this daily!
My parents were looking for childcare and brought me to All Peoples. All Peoples is about relationships and community. If you have a problem All Peoples will help you . I have so many memories of going to camp, learning to play sports, cooking . . . This place will be a part of my life forever
All Peoples is a second home for me. I've been at All Peoples since 1995 and I must admit I love this place. There is no place like ALL PEOPLES!!!
I was fortunate to be placed at APCC to do my internship back in 2002. I worked as an intern working in the LA BRIDGES program. Once I graduated I was lucky to get a position as Case Manager. APCC became my second home and that's were my experience and strong foundation was gain. The director Sandy treats her staff like family and always has an open door. She truly focuses on providing to the community and the youth with quality services. With the recent budget cuts many services were affected and some terminated. I wish In a near future I can see the center back up with so many services that every room is full and there is a full staff on board. I thank APCC because I was given the opportunity of personal and professional growth. Thanks to the many people that changed my life and to the life long lasting relationships that were born there.
All People's Christian Center has been a wonderful community partner. They welcome agencies to come into the center and offer much needed resources to the families in their community and maintain relationships for ongoing collaboration.
My experince here at APCC has been most exciting. All the people i have incounted here are driven by the joy of adding this community. I am glad inhelping this orginazation in its quest to make the comunity a better place for all. They give a helping hand in ways i could not have imagen. For example they provide food,toys, and all basic food producs in a common house hold. I feel that they go out of there way to help any one who ever needs a helping hand.
Volunteerimg here at All Peoples Community Center has been a rewarding experience. The people here are really nice and helpful and you can count on them for anything. I love volunteering here becaue the atmosphere is welcoming and warm. My job is to take care of the children who come to the summer day program. The children have so much fun when they come here, they want to stay as long as they can!
As previous employee, I have personally seen how effective All Peoples programs are and the amazing things they do for the community. All Peoples changes lives on a daily basis!
I've been involved with All Peoples Christian Center in one way or another for over 30 years. They really take their name seriously having multiple cultures, religions, classes,and creeds represented on their Board , staff, administration, volunteers, donors, and most importantly those in need who they serve. I've been a volunteer, and advisor. The people there are loving, disciplined, generous and talented. I've seen the difference they make. If you want to make a difference, I can't think of a better way to do it than to support this endeavour. Once, when I was there to clean up after a family fun night for local low-income families, it stuck me how the young staff member in charge that night could be out on a date, watching TV, or spending time with friends, but was expertly delegating authority with a smile to deal with a building full of fun-loving kids. The people at the center do the little things that lead to big results. With a smile.
I have had the opportunity to work with various nonprofit and community organizations in the South Central area of Los Angeles over the years. All People's is by far one of the best organizations in the community. The people are genuinely caring and dedicated, and the people that I have referred to All People's for assistance have all been very pleased and grateful. Its a wonderful organization.
My family is happy and honored to invest into this worthy community center (APCC) that shows results. For over 60 years this center has touched, loved, and raised a community to be accountable, resepctful, productive citizens. They offer hope to the hopeless, fathers to the fatherless and shelter to those experiencing psycho-social trauma. This center has been a beacon of hope in sometimes dark days in South L.A. Where else can children be in a safe environment and continuing their education, sports, and arts activities? Answer All Peoples!
All Peoples Christian Center is a place where you can find a lot services for the community. The staff are really helpfull and friendly with everybody. You can really feel the positive energy and I love this place not only because I feel that I am part of this family it is because I find services that can help the parents that I have in the preschool program.
I am a former high school student at A.P.C.C. it was a very good experience for me as a result of my attendance in the high school i was able to do alot of volunteer work there and i was also able to experience my first time at a christian camp in arkansas it was really nice and i got the oppurtunity to get to know alot of new people. Thank you to All Peoples i am who i am now.
During my childhood my sister and I used to come here for the children's summer day program. I decided to volunteer here since I really enjoyed and loved the experience I had here as a kid. I am a current volunteer and will continue to be as long as possible. A.P.C.C has taught me essential hard skills for my life. It is really a great environment and I would recommend parents, children, and volunteers here for the variety of program this community has to offer. The experience here is really great and everyone should be a part of it. (:
