Family Service 2023 Annual Report

Family Service 2022 Executive Summary

Donate to the Marcelo Barreiro-Mersfelder fund

Marcelo Barreiro-Mersfelder was a loving son and brother, protective of others, kind and caring to all who knew him.


Marcelo was a child who endured hurt but was given guidance and encouragement at Family Service’s Big Yellow House and developed into a strong and capable adult.


Sadly, on August 9, 2018, Marcelo was killed in an industrial accident while working at a construction site.


In his memory, a fund was developed to support

the purchase of a new pair of shoes for children

in need for their first day of school.

He believed in helping others celebrate new beginnings.
