WE ARE NOT ONLY INTERESTED IN CONSTRUCTING BUILDINGS; WE HAVE A COMMITMENT TO BUILDING BRIGHT FUTURES AND STRONG LOCAL COMMUNITIES.
Even more so than helping to build the community, we believe in giving back to local communities through charitable donations, sponsorships, and volunteer work. Since our conception, we have been involved in numerous charitable organizations with focus on youth activities, education, and faith.
The Dorcas Outreach Center for Kids
is a drop-in community center in the Booker T. Washington neighborhood of Melbourne, Florida that serves children aged 5-18 after school and during the summer. Up to 50 children a day find a structured, nurturing environment where they can get a healthy snack, receive help with their homework, play outside in a big shaded yard, learn music, do arts and crafts, and socialize with their friends. Positive choices affecting health, behavior, and attitudes are modeled by caring staff and volunteers.
The goal at The DOCK is to enable children to compete more effectively with their peers today and provide them with critical skills and knowledge they need for future success.
In May 2015
the DOCK regularly saw nine teens. Currently, 35 teens attend the DOCK on a regular basis. Teens who attend the DOCK are also mixing with children as young as five years old in a 3500 square foot building that was not designed with the needs of teens in mind because the DOCK was originally a children’s program. It is time to give the teens a space where they can find reprieve from their hectic lives, build relationships with their peers and strong adult role models, and interact in programs that will prepare them for futures as successful and contributing citizens. Learn more about Foundations for our Future, our capital campaign to build a teen center.
also serves as a gathering place for the neighborhood. The Golden Agers – a group of seniors – meets twice weekly for a game of bingo, socializing, and a hot lunch. Neighborhood residents make use of the computer lab, and there are community events throughout the year.
There is always something going on at The DOCK. Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks, from tutoring to landscaping. Please visit our Get Involved page to find out how you can help.

Edward and Cheryl Scott, Reece's parents,
decided to fund the creation of the Scott Center for Autism Treatment at the Florida Institute of Technology in 2009 as a result of their experience with their son. Former U.S. Representative Dave Weldon was also a key partner in the creation of the Scott Center, securing funds from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
Today, the Scott Center for Autism Treatment pursues a three-fold mission of clinical service, research and training. Parents and children from around the world now come to the Scott Center for the most advanced treatment methods available.
As an integrated component of Florida Tech's School of Psychology and Applied Behavior,
graduate students receive state–of-the-art training and supervision from doctoral level faculty. This prepares them for a future as professionals to continue the work to improve the lives of individuals and their families. The Scott Center is ranked among the best in the world for its research contributions to the field of behavior analysis.
The Scott Center for Autism Treatment is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization that provides children, youth and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and provides a full-range of evaluation and services, from diagnosis to intensive treatment.

- Equal emphases on service, training, and research: Applied research ensures that best practices are utilized for treatment and future clinicians are well trained. It also ensures that procedures are effectively conveyed to the community.
- Ongoing assessment of treatment effectiveness: Occurs through outcome measures, satisfaction surveys, and formal evaluation systems at all levels of training.
- Affiliation with Florida Tech’s School of Psychology: This allows the clinic to draw upon the university's resources for marketing, fundraising, and public relations, as well as for operational services.
- A focus on the entire family: Family involvement is integral in the implementation, evaluation, and ongoing revision of treatment plans. This emphasis on caregiver training helps to prevent and address problem behaviors that might arise later. Families have access to other counseling resources, including Autism Advisor, to help them manage the challenges of raising a child with a disability.
