What we're about

We are a welcoming and inclusive community of parents and caregivers from South Orange and Maplewood (and the bordering towns of East Orange, Hillside, Irvington, Livingston, Millburn, Newark, Orange, Short Hills, Springfield, Union and West Orange). We embrace all types of families and value diversity. Whether you are a stay-at-home or working parent, SOMA Families offers social events and supportive groups for you, your family, and your caregiver. Most of our events occur in South Orange and Maplewood (aka SOMA!). We like to get together for playdates, outings of all types, adult-only events, social services, book clubs, family events and just about anything else.

All members who join the group are welcome to submit and host events. Additionally, the SOMA Families board negotiates discounted activities at local venues, and hosts a weekly new moms coffee, an annual spring party, fall party, and swap event.

We look forward to meeting you and your family soon!
