About the MOMS Club


The first chapter of the International MOMS Club was founded in 1983 by Mary James, a stay-at-home mom in California who was tired of being home alone. Hoping to meet other at-home mothers and children, she soon discovered that there were no organizations that met during the day that provided activities for both moms and kids alike. So, she decided to start a new organization to fill that role to serve moms and their little ones. Thus, the MOMS Club was born!

Today, there are over 2,000 chapters of the MOMS Club nationwide with over 100,000 members! There are currently several international chapters forming too.


The MOMS club of Ithaca was founded in 2002 by a group of local moms looking to make new friends and find meaningful activities for both themselves and their young children.

Since our found, we have grown from just a handful of moms to over 40 active members!
