Do I have to live in Douglassville to join this chapter?
Not necessarily, but you do need to live within the boundaries of our club. Our members primarily live in Douglassville, but our club does cover Birdsboro and some of Union Township as well.
Also, there are two MOMS Club Chapters in Douglassville - The "East" and the "West" (primarily divided by those who live east/west of Old Airport Road). If you are unsure of which club you belong to, please contact us or contact the International MOMS Club and they can help you find a club in your area.
Can I attend a MOMS Club activity before I decide to join?
Prospective members may attend up to two monthly membership meetings or 1 business meeting and 1 public activity before deciding whether or not you would like to join. We strongly recommend that you attend a monthly membership meeting. Please contact us for meeting/activity details.
Are there attendance requirements?
The MOMS Club does not have any minimum attendance requirements. However, we do want to stress that our success is dependent on our member participation and the group is what you make of it.
Are there membership dues?
There are reasonable yearly dues (please see our Join Us page for details). The dues help pay for room rentals, newsletters, and other supplies. They cover you and your children. We understand that women staying at home to raise their children involve a great financial sacrifice, so there is financial assistance available to those who qualify.
What is included in the newsletters?
All members receive a monthly newsletter that includes a calendar of club events and activities, announcements and articles of special interests to our members and mothers in general.
What is "Helping Hands"?
During times of need (after the birth of a child, during a family emergency, etc.) we offer all of our members "Helping Hands". Other members of our group will generously provide meals for you and your family, giving you more time to focus on your family in a time of need.
