Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What started as a gathering of concerned individuals wanting to make a difference in their neighborhood has blossomed into a respected community development corporation and neighborhood association, setting a standard for inner-city revitalization. From that vision was born the Avenida Guadalupe Association (Avenida). The Avenida was incorporated in 1979 to bring community members together in an effort to revitalize the neighborhood and encourage growth through economic development, while preserving the distinctive quality and personality of the Avenida Guadalupe neighborhood. Since its incorporation, Avenida has enjoyed steady growth and its mission has evolved over time.

The mission of the Avenida Guadalupe Association is to economically transform the lives of Avenida neighborhood residents and businesses by empowering our community, developing our commerce and honoring our culture. We do that through the various programs we offer in the areas of: Housing, Job Readiness and Learning Centers for members of the Hispanic community

During more than 30 years of service, Avenida Guadalupe has enjoyed significant successes in both economic and housing development, stimulating business and commerce while beautifying and restoring the physical and spiritual character of the Avenida Guadalupe Neighborhood. Avenida has achieved notable success in a variety of projects, from structural renovations and brand new construction to housing, counseling and cultural events.

Avenida’s most significant accomplishments over the past few years include the following:
Neighborhood Commercial Revitalization Program – a six-year project consisting of a partnership between the private, public and non-profit sectors of the community, aimed at revitalizing Guadalupe Street from Frio St. to Zarzamora St.
