What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

All Peoples serves residents who experience inequity firsthand. In 90011 zip code, families face 3 to 4 times the poverty rate of families in LA County or the state of California: 42.2% of families have income below the federal poverty level, compared to 14.3% of families in LA County. (Data source: US Census, American Community Survey 2011-2015.) Under these strenuous circumstances, we focus on increasing financial stability of our families. According to the Measure of America of Social Science Research commissioned by LA County Board of Supervisors the Education Index for South Central is 2.84 on a 10 point scale of 10 being highest. The study states a strong foundation of social, emotional, and cognitive learning in the earliest years sets the stage for the development of language, core life skills like focus and self-control, and overall school readiness. A coordinated effort is needed to increase the financial stability of families and assist in youth academic achievement.
