PRESIDENT & CEO
Angelica has always advocated for her community, and it has showed in so many aspects of her business. She is owner of Flores Professional Services which strives to makes clients a high priority.
In 1998 when the downtown buildings were being retrofitted Angelica joined her husband Jesus and she was able to assist more than seventy five downtown businesses that were being at risk of displacement. This advocacy in return provided many success stories in which businesses benefited in receiving relocation assistance.
Also in 1999 when there was a tremendous demand for representation and assistance to local families and beneficiaries of Immigration Enactment for law 245i, Angelica provided low cost immigration paperwork filing assistance and through her work helped hundreds of families adjust their status.
Her perseverance for putting people in a better position continued as she encouraged and funded programs such as “Back to School Backpacks” giving away backpacks to children in low income communities. In 2004 Angelica also created and funded the program “Mujeres Exitosas” (Successful Woman), in which she, along with a great group of volunteers, were able to assist under privileged women with self- improvement workshops on education, building skills, domestic violence awareness, and self-confidence building.
One of Angelica’s highlight success stories was when her work with DACA recipients was highlighted in August 2012 when the program came into effect. It was such a success that in fact her support for young adults was recognized by local tv stations for having the very first approved DACA case in the state of CA. Through her work with DACA she was able to assist over one thousand DACA alone recipients obtain DACA status all at a very low or/ no cost.
Angelica Flores continues to assist our local community in different ways and enjoys it very much.
