On-going Facilitated Meetings
Mamas & Papas for LGBTQ Families
This drop-in support group for gay and lesbian families meets in Habitot's classroom annex the first Wednesday of every month from 5:30 pm–7:30 pm, September through June.
Supervised childcare is available for 2-5 year olds in Habitot's main museum. Pizza dinner is provided for children.
Adult participants share concerns about foster care placements and adoption, second-parent adoption, and issues of race and gender, among many other topics. The facilitated groups also provide a forum for information about early childhood development and parenting issues.
Mamas & Papas is presented in partnership with Our Family Coalition. The suggested donation is $10 per adult, but no one is turned away for lack of funds.

Caregivers are invited to meet and share experiences about the fun and challenges of caring for the children of others on the second Tuesday of the month from 10:00 am–11:00 am in Habitot's classroom annex. (Caregiver Cafes do not take place during the summer months).
During facilitated sessions (Spanish translation available), children will be occupied with art and craft activities nearby led by Habitot staff. Coffee and pastries are provided. The suggested donation is $10 per adult, but no one is turned away for lack of funds.
Attendees and their children receive FREE admission to Habitot following the Cafe where you can put new ideas into action. To receive email updates about Caregiver Cafés, please contact us at 510-647-1111 ×16 or firstname.lastname@example.org
