Dear Friends: As the Urban League of Broward County closes one of its most successful years, we have many accomplishments to celebrate. It was a year of tremendous growth. On the heels of a $1 million gift from JM Family Enterprises in 2010, we broke ground on our future home, the Community Empowerment Center. The construction of the center delivers a powerful message to our supporters: the Urban League is built to last. Doria Camaraza Board Chair
Dr. Germaine Smith-Baugh President and CEO Urban League of Broward County
LAYING THE FOUNDATION Throughout our growth, the Urban League focused on ﬁne-tuning programs that would address the barriers to education, jobs, housing and health for low-income residents in Broward County. The Community Empowerment Center will allow us to broaden our reach in the community by serving more children, families and youth in need. We knew that our expansion project would not only add economic value to the surrounding community—but it would also ﬁt the true needs of our clients. GOING BEYOND CONSTRUCTION Laying the foundation for our new home was only half the battle. It was equally important to design a blueprint for improving the continuum of critical services oﬀered by the Urban League. Our construction crew— composed of our dedicated Board of Directors, volunteers and staﬀ, played an important role in building the “new” Urban League. It is due to their commitment and the generosity of our investors that allows us to empower communities and change lives each year. We are pleased to share some highlights from the past year with you and look forward to building a better Broward County for our families, colleagues and friends.
