Why Should I Join?

Mothers & More is like no other moms' organization around. We focus on YOU as a mother, woman, and individual, and provide both face-to-face and virtual connections.

Membership in Mothers & More provides you with opportunities to:

  • re-connect with your yourself and the “more” you’re looking for in life,
  • connect with other mothers in your neighborhood and across the nation, face-to-face and virtually, to share, learn, grow, and have fun,
  • connect with the world in a new way by recognizing how your daily life is affected by, and finding ways to handle, society’s assumptions about mothers and motherhood.

The basics:

  • Access to all Champaign County Chapter activities:
    • educational meetings
    • informative discussion e-loop
