Happy New Year!
(Habitot will be closed Sunday, Jan. 1st)
WOW! You've helped us raise $22,678 for Habitot's Campaign For Joy!
Please help us raise the last $7,322 towards our $30,000 goal.


Challenge donors have extended the campaign to help Bay Area kids!

Give the gift of Habitot to young homeless children and their families, children with special needs, foster children and many other vulnerable children in our community. Last year, over 6,000 benefited from Habitot's free and supportive family programs. Make a difference in the life of a child.
Every little bit makes a difference.
