If you believe San Francisco needs to remain family friendly & if you want to play a part in making that happen, please consider stepping up to help us build Recess Collective and creating long-lasting change.

We aim to educate families on birthing options and postpartum support so that they can step confidently into parenthood. Then, we strive to address the intangible stumbling blocks of raising kids in an urban environment.  

Authentic community support, reliable in-a-pinch caregiving options, access to vetted resources and a safe, clean space for play are all crucial to supporting parents. In this way, we provide a structure and support system for parenthood that starts at the beginning when parents need it most.  

Over the past decade, we've had the opportunity to serve over 12,000 families.  We have hosted parties, provided a safe space to play for infants, toddlers & preschoolers, donated monthly visits to Nurse Family Partnership to give first time at risk mothers an opportunity to meet up & play for the past 2 years, we've partnered with Our Family Coalition to provide respite services to LGBQT parents and worked with countless other small businesses and nonprofit organizations to make San Francisco a better place to raise children, get support from other parents and caregivers and lighten the load for families with young children.  

This kind of center must continue exist for the wellbeing of new moms, for the sanity of those caring for and raising young children and for the health of our society.  We do not want a lack of funds to stop us, but the financial realities have set in and we need to ask for support in order to move forward.  

If you can donate $10 or $100, or even purchase/gift a 2 year membership to the new location for $1000, please do so today.  We need your support to (re)create this oasis for families in SF.  If you're connected with a business or related organization and would like to contribute even more, please let us know.
