Mothers On My Side (MOMS)

What is Mothers On My Side (MOMS)?


MOMS is a weekly, culturally relevant, support and advocacy group for women with personal connections to fathers with challenges

What is our MOMS Peer Support Group?

As mothers, we share common problems and experiences but we are all unique and handle circumstances very differently. In our MOMS group, we are able to talk with other moms who truly understand what we may be going through and can share advice, tips, and insights that can only come from firsthand experience.

  • Attendance is voluntary (although some moms are required to attend a support group by their employers or the court system; there is no judgment in this group, we are all peers.)
  • When we don't know other women who are going through what we are going through, we can feel isolated and stigmatized. This group is designed to help moms facing challenges feel less alone and more understood.

Why have a MOMS Group?

Some benefits to participating in MOMS Talk Circle:

  • Our support group is a safe place for any mom who needs to talk about intensely personal issues, experiences, struggles, and thoughts.
  • Seeing other women who are contending with the same adversity and making progress in their lives is inspiring and encouraging.
  • Members of MOMS can share information, keeping one another up to date on items of interest to us, and our specific challenges.
  • We empower moms to work to solve our own problems.
  • The support group is free, all you need is a willing attitude to participate and to show up.

A note from the facilitator:

To any moms considering joining our group, talking to others moms in our support group reduces anxiety, improves self-esteem, and helps our overall sense of well-being. To all moms who are facing challenges, we wish you the courage to seek support if you are in need. We are here for you.
