    Arboleda Senior Apartments Manager Has A Heart for Seniors

    Bath tubs and showers

    Bath tubs and showers at Arboleda are very accessible with built in shower seats, several handrails and adjustable shower heads to aid seniors in comfort and necessity.

     

    (La Puente, Calif.) Resident Manager Selina R. Chavira can’t wait to meet all her new neighbors and begin creating a community where seniors can live their best lives when the Arboleda Senior Apartments open this summer in La Puente.

     

    “I have a real heart for seniors,” she said. “I was very close to my grandparents, and they were very special to me. I want to create a very special place where seniors can be healthy, happy and safe.”

     

    The Arboleda Senior Apartments feature a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments for seniors 62 and better. The 74-unit apartment community includes a large community room, fitness center, computer center, and library. Other senior-friendly amenities include an interior mail room, laundry room on each floor, corridors with secure handrails and two elevators.

     

    Chavira will live and work at Arboleda with its beautiful Spanish-style architecture.

     

    The upscale 74-unit Arboleda Senior Apartment community is contracting with EngAGE, a non-profit organization that takes a whole-person approach to community and creative, healthy aging by providing arts, wellness, lifelong learning, community building and intergenerational programs to seniors. 

    Construction continues at the Arboleda apartments. High quality wood cabinets are installed with not just luxury in mind but practicality. While wood cabinets cost a little more in construction, they last for 30 years noticeably reducing maintenance and repair costs.

     

    EngAGE is an experienced organization that already serves thousands of seniors and families living in affordable senior and multi-generational apartment communities. At Arboleda, programs will be provided on-site for residents at no charge 

     

    Programs like these are key to building beneficial community connections, as Chavira knows first-hand.

     

    “One of my grandmothers lived in a senior community for several years, and she was very close to the people who lived there. She went to the jewelry-making classes and enjoyed the birthday celebrations, games and yard sales where seniors made crafts and sold them.

     

    “My grandma loved crocheting beanies for cancer patients and preemies, and they even gave her an award for her work,” Chavira said.

    Arboleda Senior Apartments

    “The Spanish-style buildings are beautiful, the coverings over the windows are really quaint and I like all the iron decorations on the property,” said Selina R. Chavira, resident manager of Arboleda Senior Apartments. “The iron-work designs are very striking.”

     

    “She loved being part of that community. She loved making friends and sharing interesting activities with her neighbors,” Chavira said. “We’re going to do that at Arboleda!”

     

    Selina Chavira is also looking forward to showing off Arboleda Senior Apartments to her parents when they visit in August for a family event.

     

    “My family lived just down the street,” Chavira said. “My parents are very active and they love the area. They love hiking the trails at nearby Schabarum Regional Park.

     

    “They’ll see that the Arboleda Senior Apartments are definitely a central place close to everything seniors need — medical offices, stores to shop, public transportation, a Post Office, pharmacies and restaurants,” she said.

    two types of balcony with wrought iron railings

    The upscale 74-unit Arboleda Senior Apartment community includes two types of balcony with wrought iron railings, a large community room, fitness center, computer center, and library. Other senior-friendly amenities include an interior mail room, laundry room on each floor, corridors with secure handrails and two large elevators.

    Reparations Finally Comes to America

    The Dameron family 1965 in E. St. Louis, IL. Barbara, Carl T., Crystal (baby), Denise, Carl and Kathleen. “We we integrators,” said Katheleen Dameron.

    “When you look at the history of redlining, the history of denying Black people and Native Americans the right to housing, this is a significant step in saying, ‘Yes, we did do wrong,’ and when you do someone wrong, you apologize and you make amends,” Dameron said. “That is the beginning of the healing process.” 

    (Paris, France). A Chicago suburb recently became the first city in the United States to agree to pay Black residents reparations for slavery and past discriminatory policies and practices.

    That decision shows that some communities are beginning to recognize and acknowledge the harm caused by America’s systemic racism, an expert on race relations said.

    “It’s a historic decision to do this, and we’re hoping that this is the beginning of people being able to open their minds, open their eyes to what’s happened in the past and the consequences today,” said Kathleen Dameron, an internationally recognized cross-cultural trainer.

    The City Council of Evanston, Illinois, recently voted to distribute $400,000 in housing assistance and mortgage relief to eligible Black households. The city will provide $25,000 for down payments on houses or property, home repairs, and interest or late penalties on property in Evanston.

    To qualify, residents must either have lived in the city between 1919 and 1969 or be a direct descendant of a black Evanston resident from that time. Those who experienced housing discrimination in Evanston after 1969 are also eligible.

    The $400,000 comes from a $10 million reparations fund created in 2019 using tax money from the city’s recreational marijuana program.

    “When you look at the history of redlining, the history of denying Black people and Native Americans the right to housing, this is a significant step in saying, ‘Yes, we did do wrong,’ and when you do someone wrong, you apologize and you make amends,” Dameron said. “That is the beginning of the healing process.”

    Even though $25,000 is not enough to pay for a house, paying reparations is still important for the city, said Dameron, a Black American now living in Paris.

    “It’s not reparations in the sense of, ‘We denied you a house, so we’re going to give you a house now,’ but it is acknowledgement of the damage done, of the impact on the generations of that damage,” Dameron said. “It recognizes and it acknowledges that we did harm consciously, in policy, in law and in practice and we’re seeking to recognize it and to make amends.”

    Dozens of other U.S. cities are also considering reparations. On March 29, Providence, Rhode Island, released a 194-page report on racism, another step in the city’s efforts to pay reparations to Black and Native American residents.

    Dameron said that getting national reparations or getting some areas to agree to reparations is still a difficult process.

    “One of the problems we have is that there are some people in the United States – and this happens consistently across the United States – they would rather close the swimming pool and have no swimming pool in the community than to have Blacks have access to the swimming pool, so as desegregation started throughout the South, public swimming pools disappeared, public parks disappeared,” she said.

    “Some people thought, “I’d rather have nothing than have Back people share in this,” she said.

    “That mentality makes it extraordinarily difficult to say, ‘We did you wrong. As human beings, we did not give you a fair environment. We persecuted you. We banned you. We burned your houses down and we killed people.’ ”

    So even though Evanston is making amends and recognizing and acknowledging that they caused harm, “that acknowledgement is still difficult for many Americans to make,” Dameron noted.

    Dameron is currently leading a series of seminars on “Healing the Collective Trauma of Racism.” In her sessions, she helps participants recognize the difference between interpersonal and institutional racism.

    Participants  build a feeling of community and energy to create social justice.

    To introduce people to her sessions, she is offering a free, self-paced, one-hour course. You can learn more by going to www.KathleenDameron.com

    Should America “be less white” Is Coca-Cola’s Training Right?

    I can understand how being told to be less white hits you in your identity, because I was told be less Black.

    “I understand people’s anger at being told to be less white,” said internationally recognized cross-cultural trainer Kathleen Dameron. “Be less white. What are the qualities?

    “I have a lot of empathy for people being told to be less white,” she said. “I know it hurts. As a Black child and as a grown-up, I have been told to be less Black, straighten your hair, dress to look like a nice corporate person. I can understand how being told to be less white hits you in your identity, because I was told be less Black.”

     

    (Paris, France)   Americans should not get upset over reports saying Coca-Cola was asking its employees to “be less white” as part of its mandatory diversity training.

    “I understand people’s anger at being told to be less white,” said internationally recognized cross-cultural trainer Kathleen Dameron. “Be less white. What are the qualities?

    “Be less oppressive. Where’s the problem? Listen more. What’s the problem? Be less defensive. where’s the problem?” she asked. “But people get upset the minute they hear, ‘Be less white,’ because it hits them in their identity. It hurts and they reject it.”

    Dameron said it might be more effective to say, “We’re asking you to create a JEDI society, to create Justice, Equality, Dignity and Inclusion.”

    The training course at the center of the Coca-Cola backlash was titled “Confronting Racism.” It advised whites to listen more and be less oppressive, less arrogant, less certain, less defensive and less ignorant,” according to the New York Post.

    Coca-Cola denies that it was part of their required training.

    “That’s not the point,” said Dameron, who has more than 30 years’ experience training American, European and Asian executives worldwide but is not involved in the disputed training.

    “Coca-Cola should have said, ‘We are committed to a fair, equal workplace environment,’” she explained. “It’s not corporate training that makes workplaces fair. It’s offering equal pay and equal opportunities for hiring and advancement regardless of race or gender. That’s how you change.”

    Dameron understands why the issue triggered some people’s emotions.

    5 Tips for Being the Face of Your Company

    Carl M. Dameron
    Carl M. Dameron Founder and creative director of Dameron Communications Photo by Robert A. Whitehead/CSUSB

    (San Bernardino, Calif.) Any company’s success is still often dictated by its portrayal in the traditional media.

    “For a company to really take off, it needs to be accessible to members of the press. So, instead of just sending out a press release every week, a company should be ready to reach out for interviews and provide quotes and soundbites to the media,” said Carl M. Dameron founder of Dameron Commercials.

    Establishing a face of the company is also a critical step in becoming media friendly. Whether it’s the CEO or an upper-level manager, the person representing the company should know the ins and outs of the industry and much more.

    Here are the five tips that everyone needs to follow when appearing on-camera. Most of it is good advice if we have lined up a print media interview for you as well, or even a phone interview.

    Dress Properly

    It might sound shallow, but people generally judge others based on how they look. So, decide how you want your company to be perceived by the audience and dress accordingly.

    For men, a suit and tie is the safest route to go. For women, it’s best to avoid vibrant clothing, excessive make up, and bulky jewelry as to not distract the viewers’ attention.

    Don’t come in with hair that’s too disheveled and covering your face – to be the face of a company, you need to proudly show off your face.

    In general, a clean, professional look should always work in most on-camera interview situations.

    Do Your Homework

    Once you get an opportunity to appear on camera (or on radio or print), you should portray yourself as an expert in not just your company, but in the industry as well.

    We will check to see if you can get the questions ahead of time, or at the least, find out what topics will be covered within the interview.  We will submit recommended questions when you have a broadcast interview, but it is up to the interviewer what questions are asked. The more prepared you are, the less likely it is that the words “Uh,” “Um,” and “You know” will make up your diction.

    Ignore the Bright Lights and Production Crew

    If you’re on TV there will probably be bright lights shining on you throughout the interview and there might even be a production team moving around in your line of vision. However, the cameras don’t pick up all the chaos going on behind the scenes.

    If you’re taking part in a one-on-one interview, your eyes and focus should be on the person conducting the interview. Averting your attention away from the interviewer for even a few seconds makes it seem like you’re disinterested, zoning out and lost.

    Avoid Industry Jargon

    When speaking about your business or industry, it’s best to use terms that everyone can understand, and take the time to explain industry terms in simple language. That way, people who are first learning about your company or industry will have an easier time of knowing what the heck you’re talking about.

    Be A Professional

    If you’re ever confronted by the interviewer with a question you’re uncomfortable answering, stay collected and take some time to craft a response. Simply saying “no comment” in a calm tone is much better than getting into a potential shouting match with the person in control of the interview. Plus, you don’t want to be on the wrong end of what could become a viral video in this day and age of YouTube.

    A Tradition of Christmas Service Continues at The Salvation Army

     

    Daniel Herrera 12, Sonali Herrera 10, mother, Sujana Herrera volunteer to serve at the recent Thanksgiving dinner. They are from Riverside this is their second-year volunteering with The Salvation Army. The annual Christmas Dinner for hundreds of people is at 2626 Pacific St., in San Bernardino on Saturday, December 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

     
    (San Bernardino, Calif.) The San Bernardino Salvation Army Corp (www.salvationarmyusa.org) hosts its annual Christmas Dinner for hundreds of people at its headquarters, 2626 Pacific St., in San Bernardino, CA 92346. This year, the Christmas dinner will be held on Saturday, December 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

    “We share the joy and love of our God who sent his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to save us from sin.  He taught use to love our neighbors as ourselves.  We share this Christmas meal and meals every day to show those in need that God truly cares for all of his children,” said Major Daniel Henderson, Citadel Corp director.

    Since 1887, the annual San Bernardino Salvation Army Christmas dinner has served thousands of families, mothers, children and men who do not have the means to provide themselves a Christmas dinner.  Some just come to enjoy fellowship with others.

    People come from Bloomington, Colton, Grand Terrace, Highland, Rialto, and San Bernardino for this annual Christmas celebratory meal.   The dinner often serves more than 300 people.

    “This year, guests will enjoy a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, containing potatoes, gravy, stuffing, vegetables, pie and other food received from donations,” said Lt. Cathie McCully.

    “Every year, volunteers come together to provide the food preparation and service of Christmas meals to dinner guests,” said Major Daniel Henderson, Commander of The Salvation Army San Bernardino Corp. “Our volunteers and staff really do an outstanding job, to make a difference for those who are less fortunate during the holiday season.”

    Many of the services provided by the Salvation Army, such as this annual Community Christmas dinner, are made possible through in-kind donations and money raised through the Red Kettle Bell Ringer campaign.  “It’s one of ministries your donations serve,” said Major Henderson.

    Each Christmas, Inland Empire Salvation Army Corps in eight corps locations combine to serve about 1,800 people holiday meals.

    The hungry families are joined by hundreds of volunteers who help prepare the food and serve meals to the families.  Along with asking volunteers to help serve food, the Salvation Army is encouraging people to donate turkeys or hams, side dishes and other food by calling (909) 888-1336.

    “The San Bernardino Corps also needs food every day for those at our Hospitality House living shelter,” said Lt. Cathie McCully. Up to 100 family members stay in its transitional and emergency family shelters.
