About MOMS Club

The MOMS Club of Richfield/SE Mpls, MN is a chapter of the International MOMS Club serving Richfield and Southeast Minneapolis. We are dedicated to the support of stay-at-home moms. We offer moms and children from all walks of life a chance to meet and have fun together.

Our club invites all mothers who stay at home full time or part time to raise their children to join who live within the boundaries of Richfield and Minneapolis south of Lake Street, west of the Mississippi River, north of Hwy 62 and east of I-35W.

We meet during the day, when at-home mothers most need support. Being a mother shouldn’t isolate you, so children are  welcome at all group events. A few of our activities include; playgroups, park days, book club, recipe club, crafts, coffee klatch, field trips and discussion groups. We also offer a monthly MOMS night out where club members get together for movies, dinner, game nights, shopping, and host holiday parties throughout the year.

History

MOMS Club began in 1983 when 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 find at-home children for her kids 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 the MOMS Club was born. The chapter she started was so successful, she knew mothers in other areas must be needing the MOMS Club, too. Soon, she and other volunteers were helping mothers start MOMS Clubs across the country and around the world! We now have 2,100+ chapters in the US alone with over 100,000 members!. We also have International chapters starting. Our chapter was founded in 1999 and currently has over 40 members.
