We are excited to announce that we have found a new organizational home!
After much research and consideration, we have decided to join Mom-mentum
and form the *Mothers' Center of Champaign County*, a Program (chapter) of
Mom-mentum! We will still be the same group, but with a new name, reduced
dues, and some awesome new opportunities for members! Our board and
Mom-mentum are working together to ensure that this transition is as seamless
Mom-mentum is a national non-profit organization that provides leadership,
education, and advocacy to support mothers in meeting today's personal and
professional challenges. This includes peer and group support, training
through seminars and workshops, professional development, and public policy
advocacy. We decided to join Mom-mentum because it fits our existing
culture and activities, fosters our long-term sustainability, and provides
increased support and opportunities to our members. To learn more about

Our Value Statement
Mom-mentum provides leadership, education, and advocacy to support mothers in meeting today's personal and professional challenges. This includes peer and group support, training through seminars and workshops, professional development, and a public policy advocate. Mom-mentum offers an Annual Women's Leadership Conference to make a business case for flex options in the workplace which we know most employees (especially moms) need to manage their work and personal responsibilities. We also host the Sloan Awards for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility to highlight companies that do this well.
Mom-mentum began as a grassroots, mom-to-mom support program. Our network of local programs still offers the opportunity to have discussion among mothers to recognize the challenges, realities and value of mothering. Over time we expanded our work to include work/life and advocacy issues that impact mothers and their families greatly and affect a mother's financial well-being. Through Mom-mentum's Advocacy Initiative, we advocate for the economic support of caregiving in public policy. Our blog keeps readers up to date on public policy that impacts mothers and families.
