What we're about
The Paulus Hook Moms Group (aka Paulus Hook Moms of Jersey City) is the original moms group of the Paulus Hook pocket of Jersey City. While our group originated in Paulus Hook, our members are from all areas of Jersey City including, Liberty Harbor, Newport, Van Vorst, Journal Square, Heights, Port Liberte, Hamilton Park and beyond. We welcome parents from all over Jersey City and surrounding NYC areas. Must have a love of Jersey City to join!
Paulus Hook Moms Group was created for families (of all shapes and sizes!) of infants to school-aged children. Our mission is to foster a strong sense of community, provide support to families and local businesses and organizations that work toward the greater good, and make lasting connections.
While this group was initially and solely created for moms, families, and caregivers to get together, chat, and play in and around the neighborhood, it is now a platform to keep families abreast of local happenings in the community - this is the group's primary focus. In addition, it is a forum for open discussion on all parenting and lifestyle topics in line with the mission of the group. The focus of this group is not hosted, planned events or recurring events, with the exception of Wednesday Coffee Morning @ Brewshot. With that being said, members are more than welcome and encouraged to organize meetups if they would like, such as play groups, play dates, moms night out, etc. using this channel.
Sponsors of the group will also post events exclusively, please contact them directly about details on venue, date, and time by messaging the host/sponsor.
Thanks a million for joining me on this incredible journey called motherhood/parenthood since 2012! Nothing has given me greater joy, sense of purpose, and pure happiness than becoming a mother.
Warmest regards, Barbara ("Miss Barbara")

We are a laid-back group of mommies supporting mommies (parents supporting parents/families supporting families), but we have implemented a few guidelines:
New members are required to upload current photo to profile and RSVP "Yes" to an upcoming event within a month of joining (for security reasons).
Members are to treat each other with kindness & respect.
Members can be removed at anytime at the organizer's discretion.
Members who are removed, or leave the group without explanation, may not rejoin.
Please note this group is FREE for members, but dues are paid by Founder to Meetup.com for running the website. If you plan on promoting your business, donations are requested to put toward Meetup dues>>>See Sponsorship below.
