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!
Broward County was created in 1915. It was named for Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, Governor of Florida from 1905 to 1909.
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.
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. So when you think of FLCC, think outside of Fort Lauderdale; FLCC is helping to unite Broward County through Arts, Education and Social Services. We believe we can do anything together!
Fort Lauderdale Community Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit
