Absolutely! I grew up down the street from the Guadalupe Center, 2312 Jarboe. The Guadalupe Center was the center of my life on the West Side. Mi Mamagrande la Dona Cruz Garcia, had the confidence of Dorothy Gallagher, to the point that Dorothy wanted to adopt my Tio Nino, the former Frank Garcia, who is the Father of Chachi! I owe much of my identity as a Chicano to the Guadalupe Center which in the 50's, helped my build a sense of responsibility while helping build the Fiesta stage and afterwards attend Boys Scout meetings in the old basement room that opened out into a play-ground back before the remodeling. It was at the Guadalupe Center where I learned to play the piano, taking lessons from Miss McGuire. It was there when last year I found my old friend Salvador "Chava" Gomez, who asked me where I had been the last 50 years!!!! So YES, I have good things to say about Guadalupe Center and all the people who work there. Jose Francisco "Chato" Rios de Garcia......
