Our founder, Mary B. James, started the
MOMS ClubŪ in the fall of 1983. The first local chapter was in Simi

offers at-home mothers and we became an international organization in 1985. Now we
have over 1,500 chapters and over 75,000 members in eight countries. We are the only
group specifically for at-home mothers.
