What is MOMS Club?

MOMS Offering Moms Support

History


In 1983 when Mary James, an at-home mother in California, decided she was tired of being alone at home. She wanted to meet other at-home mothers and she wanted to find other at-home children for her children to play with. When she discovered there were no other organizations that met during the day and allowed her to come with her baby and preschooler, she decided to start a brand new organization just for at-home mothers, and the MOMS® Club was born.

The chapter she started was so successful, she knew mothers in other areas must be needing the MOMS Club, too. Soon she and other volunteers were helping mothers start MOMS Clubs across the country and around the world!

We now have 2,100+ chapters in the US alone and over 110,000 members! We also have International chapters starting too!

Goals:

To provide a support group for mothers who choose to stay at home to raise their children.
To provide a forum for topics of interest to mothers.
To help children in the community.
To perform at least one service project yearly helping needy children.

Principles:

That women must be free to choose their personal path to fulfillment.
That, for women who choose it, raising children is an important and fulfilling full-time job.
That a family's decision for a mother to stay at home to raise the children often involves considerable financial sacrifice.
That there is no one right way to raise children, but our members have a common concern in raising their children in a healthful way.

FAQ Sheet

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How many activities must you participate in once you join?
A. There is no requirement for the number of activities you must participate in. You may join in as little or as much as you'd like. Of course, the more you join in, the more fun the MOMS® Club is for both you and your children.

Q. May anyone host a playgroup?
A. Yes, anyone may host a playgroup. The dates are submitted monthly to the Calendar Coordinator for inclusion in the calendar.

Q. Are working moms permitted to join?
A. Since most of our activities are held during the day when most people are at work, a mom who works full-time may not find any appropriate club activity when she is available. Moms who work part-time are welcome to join. However, you have to realize that activities may conflict with your work schedule.

Q. How is the Club managed?
A. A volunteer board manages the club. Each board member performs specific duties necessary for the Club to function properly. All board positions are up for election every June, and all members are welcome to run for any position.

Q. How do members communicate?
A. Most communication is done via email. For official club activities, we rely on the calendar and RSVP process. You will also receive a Member Roster, which is periodically updated by the Membership Vice-President. The roster will enable you to either phone or email other members directly.
