About Us

The MOMS Club Began...

...In 1983 when Mary James, an at-home mother in California, decided that 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 that 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!

Our Chapter's Beginnings

Wheaton resident and mother of two, Julie K., was looking to meet other mothers with children the same age when she first heard about MOMS (MOMS Offering Moms Support) Club, a support group for stay-at-home moms and moms working part-time.  Unfortunately, there wasn’t a local chapter for her to join.

She felt there had to be other moms in the area looking for the same connections, so in the spring of 2008, she started the Wheaton chapter of MOMS Club.  

She was right! In just one year the Wheaton chapter grew to more than 20 members and is continuing to seek other moms who are looking for the same thing.


What Makes Us Special

  • We believe that being a mother should not isolate you. You may ALWAYS bring your children to any event we have.

 

  • You are welcome to nurse at our meetings or activities. We are all mothers here and many of us have nursed our own children.

 

  • We meet during the day when at-home mothers most need support!

 

  • At-home mothers of any age children are welcome! You don't have to leave the group when your children enter school. We know you still need support as your children grow.

 

  • We know being an at-home mother today means making financial sacrifices, so our dues are only $20 per year!
Our 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


Our Principles

  • That women must be free to choose their personal path to fullfillment

 

  • That, for women who choose it, raising children is an important and fullfilling full time job

 

  • That a family's decision for a mother to stay at home to raise the children oftern 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
