Flores de Juarez or “Flowers of Juarez” is a training program of Crossroads Community Supported Healthcare committed to the long-term sustainability and advancement of community health and wellness in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The program’s efforts to provide acupuncture training, leadership development, and community organizing in Juarez, free of charge, are documented in Joshua Wheeler’s book Acid West.

Flores de Juarez’ primary work currently supports Promotores Descalzos, a health promotion school offered at no cost to students and volunteers serving community centers within the Catholic Diocese of Juarez. In order to provide free scholarships, Flores de Juarez is funded primarily by donations and a percentage of surplus revenues from Crossroads’ Community Acupuncture clinic in Las Cruces.
