How Did Habitot Get Started?

Habitot opened its doors to the public in April, 1998, following six years of volunteer fundraising and creating support for an East Bay children's museum. More than 30,000 people visited in Habitot's first 8 months, demonstrating a huge desire for a safe place for play and learning for young children and their families.

Today, 20 years later, Habitot welcomes 60,000 visitors a year, including thousands of vulnerable families reached annually through inclusion programs. Habitot's original founder and long-time executive director, Gina Moreland, says "Habitot has become an essential community gathering place for new parents and a rite of passage for young children. It's exciting to see parents who came as toddlers now bringing their own children to Habitot!"

Parents Play a Role
in Preventing School Violence

Beyond supporting our legislators to enact commonsense gun control measures, there’s something very important parents can, and should be a part of:  ensuring that isolated, friendless and otherwise “different” children are included
in the social life of schools and preschools.
