We live in the United States of America, united for what? Isn't it our unity and diversity, that gives us strength? We as a people handicap ourselves when we ignore or neglect underprivileged communities. Fort Lauderdale Community Center refuses to compartmentalize any portion of Broward County. We don't care what section of this great county you live in "YOU ARE BROWARD" through our campaign "I AM BROWARD". A slogan first uttered by Luctricia "Lu" Welters, founder of the Jubilee Dance Theatre. Fort Lauderdale Community Center(FLCC) is not just involved in the community of Fort Lauderdale, but provides services from Parkland, to Hallandale, from Miramar, to Deerfield Beach and every community that makes up Broward County. "I AM Fort Lauderdale Community Center; and I AM BROWARD", are you?
If not, then consider a place,(Broward County) that is the most dynamic, most hospitable, most caring for the least of it's residents; a place that understands the importance of the arts to "HOLD THE LINE". A County that believes in a good education and that cares for its fellow man, through an array of uplifting social services; a great place to live called, "Broward County"! Help us strengthen the whole County by registering on this website as a volunteer; and visit VolunteerBroward, so our County can excel to the greatness this kind of diversity produces.
Broward County and its residents are competing with global communities, countries like China and India and we have to turn our County into a lean, not mean, commerce machine. To do this, we must recognize the value that each and every living being adds to the whole County. Like tender plants we must cultivate, educate and nurture our fellow citizens to success, not just for themselves, but for the whole County and Country, of the UNITED States of America!
Fort Lauderdale Community Center
Broward County was created in 1915. It was named for Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, Governor of Florida from 1905 to 1909.
Broward County is blessed with a plethora of recreational centers, community centers and performing arts centers, these facilities can be found in every corner of this county. FLCC will not be housed in one location in Fort Lauderdale, instead, it presents a mobile community center able to operate out of any of the many underutilized recreational centers and community centers already built. FLCC's offices are currently located at the New Mirawood Academy in Hallandale Beach, FL and our group home"The Hope House" in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
In an emergency, Fort Lauderdale Community Center, working with an array of other organizations, can bring resources and manpower to assist any community in Broward County with food, temporary shelter and any other services needed. We collaborate with a host of other agencies so were not duplicating efforts.
Our mobile computer lab can be setup and broken down, in just 30 minutes. For training, we can set-up shop where there's a need, offering our services to those of low to moderate incomes anywhere in the County, at no cost! We do this by the generous donations of corporations and individuals like yourself. Donate Now! Broward Counts first mobile community center uniting Broward through Arts, Education and Social Services.
Through our partnership with South Florida Artist Association and the Broward County Cultural Division, we can keep you abreast of Arts related events all over the County.
