God's Little Lambs Childcare Center
Broward County families who need subsidized daycare wait an average of two and one-half to three years for assistance. That means there can be as many as 10,000 children in need of safe, quality, affordable daycare so their parents can work!
Gods's Little Lambs provides quality childcare in a warm, loving and nuturing learning environment. Founded in 1999 to provide daycare to homeless and very low-income families who are not receiving subsidies from the state, God's Little Lambs is a caring home away from home for more than 100 children each year. Programs include one year olds to pre-kindergarten age, plus afterschool care for school age children. Over 90% of enrolled children pay a reduced tuition which is made possible through donations from individuals, churches, and organizations who love all of God's children.
The atmosphere at God's Little Lambs is one of compassion and love. Though a comprehensive program of learning, play, worship, Bible lessons, and nutritional meals, God's Little Lambs strives to instill in our children a love of God, a sense of security, and a readiness for kindergarten that will start them on a path to break the cycle of poverty. Parents are nutured as well by offering parenting classes and weekly Bible studies for mothers.

At Sofar, we like to ask: who's ever been to a bad gig? For some, the crowd was too loud or maybe the beer was warm. For others, the sound system wasn't doing the artist justice. Or maybe someone was in the line of view, snapping selfies all night. Whatever the experience, it just wasn't what you hoped or expected. The magic of a live event experience has been lost.
Sofar Sounds was founded to bring back that magic.
