Mattie Coleman – Corresponding Secretary / Consumer Advocate

"I have a been a proud member of The Black Los Angeles County Client Coalition since 2008. I am a woman with a story of survival. I recently graduated from Los Angeles Southwest College and hope to go to work in the field of Psychology, preferably as a substance abuse counselor. I recently turned 60, but I am more hopeful of the future than ever.

I am an interim corresponding secretary for BLACCC. Even though my duties are light, I feel a tremendous responsibility to be part of the job that is mentioned in our Mission Statement. When someone says the phrase "giving back", it means working to help others beat the forces of poverty, illiteracy, hunger, homelessness and drug addiction. Not to mention physical disabilities, loneliness, heartbreak or any disparity that prevents the wholeness of the African American communities.

What has impressed me the most being a member of BLACCC is working with Osbee Sangster as a mentor and the members who have become my family and friends."
