The MOMS Club of Manatee, Fl. is a local chapter of MOMS Club International (www.momsclub.org), a non-profit organization founded on the principle of “Moms Offering Moms Support”. We are a support group designed just for you, the at-home mother of today! You want to stay involved in the world around you, seek a variety of activities for you and your children, and are proud of your choice of at-home mothering for your family? We know, because we are at-home mothers, too!
Our chapter serves moms who live in Manatee County (Parrish, Palmetto, Ellenton, Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch) If you live elsewhere, please contact the International MOMS Club at email@example.com or visit their website www. momsclub.org to find out if there is a club near you or how to start one.
Our activities occur during the day, when stay at home moms need the most support, and include both moms and their children.
Why Join? Being a stay at home mom can be isolating, and it can be tough to meet other moms and children. That's where MOMS Club can help! We are a group committed to supporting one another and providing activities that benefit both mother and child. Through participation in meetings and activities you will meet other moms who live in your city, have a variety of activities to choose from to fill your day, and build new friendships.
Activities: Our activities vary from month to month and always include both mothers and their children. However, we do have one MOMS Night Out per month, that is intended for mothers only. We try to fill our monthly calendar with playdates, field trips and outings and are open to suggestions. We encourage all members to get involved with planning the calendar and hosting activities.
Service Projects: MOMS Clubs throughout the country want to make a difference in their community. Local MOMS Club chapters are committed to completing at least one service project each year that benefits children, although it is not unusual for clubs to do multiple projects. Service Projects for MOMS Club of Manatee, FL include: Mothers Helping Mothers, March of Dimes, and others.
Membership: Membership is open to all mothers with mailing addresses within Manatee County, who stay at home or work part time. We welcome children of all ages, you don't have to leave the group when your children enter school! We know you still need support as your children grow!
