God’s Little Acres is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, multi-cultural, non-religious Florida licensed charity that provides safe and controlled recreational opportunities for terminally ill and developmentally disabled children between the ages of 2 and 11 with their families. The five-acre ranch is located in Coconut Creek, Florida, serves as an escape for seriously ill children from their typical hospital surroundings. The children’s diagnosis include cancer, leukemia, AIDS, cerebral palsy, autism down syndrome, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis and many other afflictions.

The Children come from Holy Cross, Joe DiMaggio and Miami Children’s Hospital, Broward Children’s Diagnostic Center, to enjoy the activities at God’s Little Acres. Since the initial function in March of ’98 over 16,000 seriously ill and developmentally disabled children and their families have enjoyed the time away from the hospital and the numerous activities God’s Little Acres provides for them. The children and their families come FREE of charge for the entire day to the ranch to enjoy miniature horses, hay rides, clown shows, lunches, petting zoo, games, ice cream, entertainment, and many special gifts to take home.

God’s Little Acres has been in operation for over 19 years. The only way the organization has been able to operate is through donations and the 150 volunteers.

Your support makes these dreams a reality. Remember that sickness has no boundaries, it can strike anyone.
