Mothers & More is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving
the lives of mothers through support, education and advocacy. We
address mothers' needs as individuals and members of society, and
promote the value of all the work mothers do.
mission is based on the following core beliefs:
mother is more than any single role she plays at any given point
in her lifetime. She is entitled to fully explore and develop
her identity as she chooses: as a woman, a citizen, a parent or
the work mothers do - whether paid or unpaid - has social and
women deserve recognition and support for their right to choose
if and how to combine parenting and paid employment.
mothers, all children and all families are unique. We respect
the wisdom of each mother to decide how to care for her children,
her family and herself.
have the right to fulfill their caregiving responsibilities without
incurring social and economic penalties.
transitions women make into and through motherhood are challenging
and can be difficult.
mothers are powerful.
Serving over 7,500 mothers in the U.S. and beyond, Mothers &
More is a non-profit membership organization that cares for the
caregiver. We provide a nationwide network of local chapters for
mothers who are - by choice or circumstance - altering their participation
in the paid workplace over the course of their active parenting
years. Our chapters are structured to support a mother as she navigates
the challenges of her daily life - whether she is a full-time family
caregiver or struggling to achieve a better balance between the
demands of paid work and family care.
Through our chapters and other services, we provide opportunities
for mothers to connect with one another in ways that assist them
in developing their unique identities as women and help them move
more confidently through the transitions that affect their family,
work and life.
Mothers & More champions the value and necessity of all mothers'
work to our society - paid and unpaid, within and outside of the
home. We strive to raise awareness about the fact that mothers live
and work in a society that presents significant barriers to their
ability to succeed as women, citizens, parents or participants in
the workforce. By uniting mothers to act on their own behalf, we
seek to eliminate policies, practices and attitudes that unfairly
impact mothers as caregivers.
its inception in 1987, Mothers & More has grown to more than
180 chapters and almost 8000 members worldwide.
& More not only offers support for all mothers, it also offers
