Habitot Celebrates 20th Birthday!
It was 20 years ago this April that Habitot opened it's doors for the first time. 30,000 people flooded in in the first 8 months! Check out this April, 1998 SF Chronicle article about Habitot's grand opening. Thanks to many years of community support and donations from families and individuals, Habitot has stayed true to its mission supporting early childhood learning through play and welcoming the most vulnerable families. We invite you to make a gift of $20 (or more) to help launch Habitot into the next 20 years!
