PAT RODGERS to be Honored by Florence Crittenton Services

President and CEO of Rodgers Builders recipient of Lucille Giles Award


(April 17, 2017) On May 9, 2017, Patricia Rodgers, President of Rodgers Builders, will be awarded Florence Crittenton Services’ (FCS) Lucille Giles Award at the FCS Annual Luncheon. This award is given to an individual with outstanding commitment to human and social concerns, who has  supported the women and children served by Florence Crittenton’s programs.


Pat Rodgers served on the Florence Crittenton Board of Directors from 1995-1998 and 1998-2001. She served as Board Chair from 1996-1997 and 1997-1998, as did her late husband B.D. Rodgers in 1983-1984 and 1992-1993. Pat has been a longtime supporter of the comprehensive programs that empower and equip the women and children in crisis served by FCS. Rodgers is an annual event sponsor of the Annual Luncheon and has hosted a charity golf tournament benefiting FCS for eight years: The B.D. Rodgers Memorial Golf Tournament.


Florence Crittenton Services is a nonprofit organization that offers pregnant adolescent girls and women, of any age, safe housing, and prenatal care through delivery of their baby, along with a continuum of care, focused on counseling, health care, and vocational and educational services. The agency was established in Charlotte in 1903 and has served 40,000 women and children and their families since.


Funds raised at the Annual Luncheon are used to maintain and strengthen the agency’s comprehensive services throughout all programs. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2015-2016 40% of the women admitted to FCS had no prenatal care at the time of admission, 66% were homeless, 48% of FCS clients had documented mental health issues.


“Pat Rodgers has been supporting Florence Crittenton Services for many years, and I could not be more excited to honor the work she has done for our young girls and women,” said Diane Thompson, CEO of FCS. “Though we could never thank her enough, the Lucille Giles Award will allow us to formally recognize her for her support. Pat’s dedication to FCS—and by extension, our community—has provided so much Health and Hope for those in need.”
