MOMS Club (MOMS Offering Moms Support) is an international, non-profit organization, specifically aimed at meeting the needs of mothers who have chosen to stay home with their children. This can include mothers who work out of their homes as well as those who work part-time.
The MOMS Club of Waterford, MI is part of a national organization that was started in 1983 by Mary B. James in Simi Valley, California. Today there are 2000+ chapters in the United States and over 100,000 members. We also have International chapters starting too!
The purpose of this local support group shall be:
a) To provide a support group for mothers who choose to stay at home to raise their children;
b) To provide a forum for topics pertinent to children, child raising, homemaking, personal improvement and family;
c) To engage in activities to enrich the lives of children in the community;
d) To undertake and complete at least one charitable, humanitarian or social welfare project related to children each year.
The principles of this local support group shall be:
a) That women must be free to choose their personal path to fulfillment;
b) That, for women who choose it, raising children is an important and fulfilling full-time job;
c) That a family's decision for a mother to stay at home to raise the children often involves considerable financial sacrifice;
d) That there is no right way to raise children, but that a major reason for the members to come together is their desire to seek out mothers with a common concern for raising their children in the best possible and most healthful way;
e) That children are a community's greatest resource, and that a community's concern for its children is marked by the quality of its schools.
