We feel very happy when we are at La Juanita. We laugh under our miseries.
- Toty Flores

In 1999, Toty Flores founded the La Juanita Cooperative to give people the tools to piece together their lives again. His work ethic is woven into the many classes and services at the center. Now a congressman, Flores looks to the center as a model and an inspiration for the work he does today.
