    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.

    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?!
