The FLITE Center

At any given time, there are approximately 600 youth between the age of 18 and 23 that have exited the foster care system in Broward County and another 120 youth that are getting prepared for their transition out on their own. While they may be considered legal adults, many of them haven’t fully developed the life skills they’ll need to function successfully in the adult world.

That’s why we created the Fort Lauderdale Independence Training & Education Center. It was conceived as a resource to connect these young adults with the full range of assistance that’s available in the community.

Through the FLITE Center and the community agencies we partner with, teens entering early adulthood will learn the practical skills they need as they set out on their own. We offer a place for them to bond with others making the same transition. And we provide essential support as they take on adult responsibilities and begin building their lives as productive members of the community.

Our Mission


The FLITE Center is a central resource for young people in Broward County’s dependency system, offering a single, convenient point of access to the broad range of services and support they need to become successful adults.


We offer a safe, nurturing environment that promotes personal growth at the same time that it develops practical skills. Moreover, by bringing multiple services together into a single facility, we simplify and streamline the assistance process.
