Review for Habitot Children's Museum, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Habitot is a wonderful environment for young children to have the opportunity to explore their environment freely and safely. I went with a family whose child typically has a very difficult time with transitions into new environment. Upon arriving at Habitot, he just eased right in, and started exploring each of the play areas on his own - with a BIG smile on his face! Their warm and welcoming, kid-friendly decor made all the difference!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that they have made such a huge difference in the lives of many at-risk children and families, both with and without special needs, by reserving their weekday afternoons specifically for other agencies to bring their families in for a free day.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

(if given adequate funding) like to see a few more play areas for younger children, and expanding their space to accommodate more people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their openness and willingness to help meet the unmet needs in the community, by partnering with local agencies to provide a safe haven and friendly staff to host "free days" for at-risk families and their children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Warm, friendly, and welcoming

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

serve more people in the community and touch many more lives with their wonderful program

Ways to make it better...

longer hours opened to the public

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the shortage of funding to turn many more of their wonderful vision into reality

One thing I'd also say is that...

this place is truly a small glimpse into heaven for young children and their families

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I've brought families I work with to Habitot for their free days that they host several times a year for families with special needs.
