“All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.”

Acts 4:32

The Maria Marcelo Community Fund will fuel the vision of Maria Marcelo to see a flourishing community in the Washington/Guadalupe neighborhood. Maria was passionate about bringing people together through faith in Jesus Christ, food, and Mexican cultural traditions. The Maria Marcelo Memorial Community Fund will resource our continuance of her legacy!


Maria Marcelo had a vision to activate the Washington United Youth Center. The 17,000 sq ft youth center is at the heart of the Washington/Guadalupe community. The community center offers only 8 hours of public programming per week. Maria’s vision was to partner with leaders in the community to bring more than 50 hours of week of public programming per week to the center!
