Stock the Pantry Summer Social

One of the critical challenges that youth aging out of foster care face is emergency food assistance. As the only one-stop resource center for transitioning youth in Broward County, FLITE Center serves as a support system in the areas of housing, education, employment, and resource navigation. Within this service structure, we fill the gaps youth may face when entering adulthood. This support allows our youth’s essential needs to be met and helps provide stability while they deal with other challenges in their lives.

We invite you to participate in our “Stock the Pantry Summer Social”, on Tuesday, July 17th (6 pm – 8 pm) at Stache, where we will be raising funds to provide our youth with this much-needed support.

100% of the admission fee will go towards emergency food assistance. Attendees will receive 1 drink ticket, appetizers, and networking opportunities.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.

The Dr. Grauer Tech Lab Grand Opening

Come and join The FLITE Center in celebrating the grand opening of the “Grauer Tech Lab”, a 7-unit computer lab donated by Dr. Robert T. Grauer.

As a volunteer, Dr. Grauer donates his time at the FLITE Center as a tutor for youth preparing for the GED exam. While volunteering, he noticed the need for new computers and donated the necessary funds to help us establish our first computer lab to help advance the educational development of our youth.

For this we are forever grateful and are paying tribute to his charitable act by hosting a grand opening ceremony and titling the lab in his name.

We would like to invite you to share this special moment with us and thank Dr. Grauer for his help. There will be light bites and refreshments served.
