In 1983 Mary James, an at-home mother in California,
decided she was tired of being alone at home. 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,
and MOMS Club was born.
The chapter she started was so successful, she knew mothers in other
areas must be needing MOMS Club, too. Soon she and other volunteers were helping mothers start MOMS Clubs across the
country and around the world.
We now have over 2,100 chapters with more than 110,000
members across the United States. There are MOMS Club chapters in seven countries - Canada, Czech Republic, Ghana, Italy,
Nigeria, Portugal and the United States. The MOMS Club is a nonprofit corporation and a 501 (c) (3) publicly-supported
charity registered with the IRS.
MOMS Club of Champlin/Anoka/Dayton, MN was started in May of 2000. The club is led by
an executive board who works with a representative from the International MOMS Club® to
help us provide support to our club and community.
