Angeline's Book Drive to Benefit Habitot

fundraising thermometer Thanks to our friends at Angeline's Louisiana Kitchen in downtown Berkeley, our Holiday Children's Book and Parenting Resources Drive is on! Between November 25 and December 31, bring a children's book for 0-5 year olds, or a parenting book or reference, to Angeline's at 2261 Shattuck Ave. in downtown Berkeley and receive a free order of beignets (one order per table).

Books will update Habitot's collection in the Family Resource Center Parenting Library or in the Reading Room.

Check out our Wish List for ideas.

Holiday Celebration for Children with Special Needs

Come play with our hands-on exhibits, explore the art studio, and enjoy family bonding time in a safe, accessible environment full of play, enrichment and fun.

This Holiday Celebration is generously sponsored by Wells Fargo.

Annual Fund Drive Dedicated to the Most Vulnerable Families

fundraising thermometerNo one needs Habitot more than vulnerable families like teen parents, homeless families and families with special needs children.

In just the last four years, more than 3,000 of these parents and children have joined Habitot's Family Engagement Programs that provide parenting support, peer connection and family bonding through play. (These programs take place in the afternoons when Habitot is closed to the public). But this valuable program is now in jeopardy, a casualty of state budget cuts that ended our First 5 grant last July.

We have worked hard and raised one third of the Program's annual cost of $60,000, thanks to a generous grant from Yahoo, Inc. but we desperately need to raise an additional $20,000 to welcome the 1,500 at-risk parents and children we know will want to come in the coming year. 100% of your giving this season will support Family Engagement in the next year -- and thanks to Board members and other donors, if you give by December 31, your gift will be matched 1:1, doubling its impact! Thank you for giving generously.
