Glenda Avalos


My name is Glenda Avalos, I was born In Guatemala in 1980 my family and I relocated to the U.S.A shortly after in 1981. I have been blessed to call Daniel my husband for the past 19 years, together we have three children Daniella 18 yrs, Angel 15 yrs and Alondra 10 yrs old.

For the past 15 years I have served the South Tucson community, through youth prevention ministry within the nonprofit sector. The City of South Tucson and it’s Community is very dear to me, with so much potential. If only it had the proper resources that would levalout the playing field with the surrounding communities. Which would decrease the numerous social injustice that occur within the city limits.

This ignites my passion to encouraging all to obtain a brighter future, breaking any social categorization and stereotypes through faith and educational empowerment. I am motivated by the love of Christ and his compassion, I aim to share the Gospel of Jesus through action, Casa Maria Soup Kitchen enables my passion to become a reality through it’s mission, works of mercy, peace and justice.
