How It All
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 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! There are now 2,100+ chapters in the US alone and over 110,000 members! There are also International chapters starting too!
The MOMS Club of Hollidaysburg/Altoona was founded in 2003. The goal of our club is to provide friendship and support for stay-at-home mothers and their children. We believe that staying home to raise our children is a fulfilling full-time job!
The MOMS Club of the Hollidaysburg and Altoona Area, PA is a local chapter of the International MOMS Club. If you are not from the Hollidaysburg or Altoona Area and would like to find a chapter near you, click here.
