DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!! WE HAVE A HOME!!! We are thrilled to announce that GiGi's Playhouse Miami will be opening it’s door at 16451 NW 67th Ave in the Town of Miami Lakes, Florida. With direct access to public transportation and 5 minutes from major highways, our new beautiful space will allow us to serve the entire metro area for time to come. The center will have a FREE multipurpose room that is large enough to hold programs such as “Leaps & Bounds”, educational conferences, fundraisers and parties too! We'll have 1-on-1 learning labs, a resource library, the GiGiFit gym and the CafeG kitchen - teaching life skills, arts & crafts and more. Teenagers and young adults can hang out in our family lounge room, as we anticipate our next phase of growth to include job training programs and the Hugs + Mugs Gift Shop & Cafe. We are so happy that a leap of faith has brought us this far. Our team is beyond grateful to our Donors, families, volunteers, board & committee members. Special thanks to Joe Fernandez, from Downtown Realty Advisors for guiding us and keeping our vision forward from day one! 

Grand Opening April 26
