Foothill Ranch MOMS Club


Welcome to the Foothill Ranch, CA  MOMS Club website

Who We Are

 

The MOMS Club® (Moms Offering Moms Support) is a non-profit support group specifically for stay-at-home moms.  We are interested in the world around us, want a variety of activities for ourselves and our children, and are proud of our decision to stay home to raise our family.

 

The Foothill Ranch Chapter was founded in 1999.  It was originally part of the Portola Hills MOMS Club, but as we grew too large it was decided to break off and form our own club just for the at-home moms and children within Foothill Ranch.  Initially there were 40 founding club members, which has now grown to a membership of 75 women and their children.

 

Almost all of our activities take place during weekdays, when you need the support most.  We believe being a mother should not isolate you, therefore children are expected to attend all MOMS Club events, with the exception of our “Mom’s Night Out” events.

 

What We Do

 

We offer many enriching activities for moms and their children each month as well as continual opportunities to become involved in club administration and community service. 

 

Ø      Monthly club meetings with discussions, input from members and a chance to socialize with other women just like you!

Ø      Casual get-togethers at local parks, community pools or member’s homes. 

Ø      Outings and field trips tailored to moms and young children. 

Ø      Parties and potlucks around the holidays or just for fun! 

Ø      Playgroups made up of 6-10 members and kids of similar ages. 

Ø      Specialty classes for kids, such as Gymnastics, Music & Movement and Stories & Arts & Crafts. 

Ø      Activities of interest for moms, such as Guest Speakers, Cooking Club and Mom’s Night Out.

Ø      Family Outings so even Dads can attend occasionally!

Ø      Service projects where members can volunteer, while still caring for their children.

Club History & Information

 

The MOMS Club is a non-profit organiztion founded by Mary B. James.  She was a stay at-home mother in Simi Valley, CA that was tired of being alone at home and wanted to meet other at-home mothers with children for her own kids to play with.  When she discovered there were no other organizations that met during the day and allowed her to attend events with her baby and preschooler, she decided to start a brand new organization just for at-home mothers.  Word spread about the wonderful support that the MOMS Club offers at-home mothers and we became a national organization in 1983.

 

The MOMS Club represents 100,000 members and over 2,000 local chapters across the United States.  We also have International chapters in Canada and abroad.  There are currently over 20 chapters in Orange County alone.  We are the only international support group specifically for at-home mothers.
