Support for Families Event Descriptions

Access to Adventure

At Access to Adventure we partner with incredible organizations to connect children and youth with special needs and their families to experience and explore activities that broaden their vision of what opportunities exist in our community. Access to Adventure is hosted in Golden Gate Park every summer!


Movie Nights

Join us as we roll out the red carpet for our honored guests. We bring box office hits, classic kids movies, and more as we laugh, cry, hoot and holler. We have freshly popped popcorn, pizza, and snacks to keep everyone fueled up for the cinematic adventures.


Family Access Days

SFCD is happy to partner with aquariums, museums, and other cultural institutions across San Francisco to bring accessible and equal access events to our children and families. We have partnered with Aquarium of the Bay, Contemporary Jewish Museum, the De Young Fine Arts Museum, and are looking to visit new and engaging spaces. Join us!



The Aquarium of the Bay and Support for Families come together in partnership to host haunting Halloween parties for families of children with special needs. We provide all sorts of frightful fun: whether we are learning about eerie eels; getting frightening face paint; or making special treats for our tricky otters. Come for the fright! Stay for the fun.

Holiday Ice Skating Party

Slick and smooth out on the ice. We don our skates and scarves and hit the ice! Whether it’s your first time on ice or you’re practicing for the next Olympics, we have a team of volunteers on ice with us to ensure that everyone has a safe and slippery day. And… is that a skating Santa?!
