Activities & Events
We are a support group designed just for you, the at-home mother! You are interested in the world around you, want a variety of activities for you and your children, and are proud of your choice of at-home mothering for your families! We know, because we’re at-home mothers, too!
You need a support group that understands your special needs as an at-home mother and we’re it! We are the first, largest and fastest growing support group specifically for ALL at-home mothers.
We know that you made a choice to be an at-home mother, and that choice is not easy in today’s world. We understand that being an at-home mother does not mean you “don’t work” — ALL mothers work, whether they work taking care of their children at home or work full-time outside the home.
In fact, it’s impossible to draw a line between at-home mothers and working mothers — indeed, it’s never been that simple. Many of our members do work for pay. Probably more than half do something that the Department of Labor considers makes them “working moms.” They work part time, they work in family businesses (often without pay), they work at home or they work out of the home full-time in schedules that allow them to be home with their children during the day. Mothers are very creative at how they afford to stay home to be with their children.
Because of that, it’s not easy to define what a working mother is. But, an at-home mother is one who is taking care of her children, herself. She may have help from family or part-time sitters or preschool, but overall, she has arranged her schedule to be able to raise her children, at home, herself.
It’s those long day-time hours that can be so difficult for at-home mothers. That’s why the MOMS Club plans nearly all of our activities during the day, when at-home mothers most need the support.
And, that’s why our members can bring their children with them to just about everything we do. You don’t have to hire a sitter to go to one of our meetings. Having children with us is just part of being a mother-at-home, and we understand that. We believe you should be able to participate in the community — with your children. Being an at-home mother shouldn't isolate you.
We plan all sorts of activities for our members and their children. We have playgroups, babysitting co-ops, group outings and parties, of course, because those are fun for our kids. But we also have special moms-only activities, like coffee and lunch dates for moms whose children are in school — plus the nights out on the town with "the girls" that we all need and deserve!
As moms, we have a vested interest in our community. That's why we also have service projects throughout the year to benefit local schools, hospitals and other organizations that rely on caring friends and neighbors to help them continue their good work.
There's something for everyone in MOMS Club! If you’re looking for other at-home mothers and want a wide variety of activities for you and your children, we’re the group for you. We believe you have a lot to offer, and we can’t wait to meet you!
