The Midland, MI Chapter was chartered in March 2005 by our former President, Georgie. She and her family moved to Midland in December 2004, and she was sad to hear that Midland didn’t have a MOMS Club®. So, our fearless leader contacted the International MOMS Club® and got the charter process rolling. Our first meeting was in April 2005. We are now over 45 members and three zip codes strong! We extend the offer of membership to Freeland, Midland and Sanford moms. Thank you, Georgie!
The International MOMS Club® began in 1983 when Mary James, an at-home mother in California, decided she was tired of feeling isolated in her community. 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 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. The International MOMS Club® was born!
The chapter Mary started was very successful and she knew mothers in other areas would benefit from a MOMS Club®, too. Soon she and other volunteers were helping mothers start MOMS Clubs® across the country and around the world!
There are now over 2,000 chapters in the US alone, with more than 100,000 members! If you would like to establish a chapter, please email the International MOMS Club®.
