Welcome to the MOMS Club® of Fort Collins East website. We are a local chapter of MOMS Club® International, a non-profit organization for part and full-time stay-at-home moms. Our chapter is open to any mom and her children who live east of Lemay Avenue in Fort Collins and the town of Wellington. If you do not live within the area outlined above please contact MOMS Club® International to be directed to the proper chapter for your location.


MOMS Club® of Fort Collins East has a lot to offer, including:

  • Monthly Member Meetings with speakers, discussions, and other fun programs.
  • Outings for mothers and their children - parks, storytimes, concerts, museums, and casual playdates at member's homes.
  • Tours of local businesses/community operations.
  • Holiday parties throughout the year including Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter and Summer Picnic. These events usually include activities for a variety of age children, a craft, and munchies and drinks.
  • Small Groups - Playgroups for moms and children organized by age.
  • Babysitting Coop
  • Activity Groups -  We have moms with interests all over the place and clubs within a club include Book Club and BUNCO.
  • Family Days - Occasional weekend activities to get the whole family together.
  • Service Projects - As part of being a mom within a community we try and perform acts of service to people in need. Last year we had a snack drive for school children at a low-income school, a clothing drive, and visits to an assisted living facility.
  • Helping Hands - The moms in our club have come together to provide support to new moms or moms in crisis by providing meals. Our helping hands coordinator maintains an active volunteer list of moms who are willing to provide meals at any given notice. We offer this to every expectant mom, as well as any mom who has a need.
  • Moms Night Out (MNO) - One of our most popular activities - a chance for moms to get away with the girls for an evening of fun. Past nights have included dinner and a movie, game nights, manicures, and dessert nights.
  • Discussion Board where members can post questions.

If you are interested in joining, please email Toni, Membership Vice President, at ktaragon@msn.com and she will provide you with the information you'll need to become a member of our group by email, phone, or mail.

Prospective members are invited to attend two Monthly Member Meetings to see if you like the club and its members before joining. The meetings have a guest speaker, we go over any business of the club, review the calendar for the next month, and give moms a chance to talk. Babysitters are provided to help keep an eye on the kids (tips appreciated). Email Toni for date, time, and location of our next meeting.

Membership dues are $20.00 per year to pay for babysitters at the monthly member meeting, snacks, craft supplies, etc. We understand that a woman staying at home raising her children involves a great financial sacrifice, so if the dues are a hardship to your family, please let us know.

After your membership form and dues are received you will receive, on a monthly basis, the newsletter and activity calendar via email. If you do not have email, let us know and the information can be mailed to you.

Once you join there are lots of ways to get more involved with the club. The Monthly Member Meeting is a time for all members to vote on important club decisions. This is your opportunity to find out what is being planned and suggest ideas for future calendar activities. In addition, the Executive Board and Coordinators are all volunteers. If you are interested, we encourage all members to consider a leadership position.

If you have further questions about membership, please contact Toni our Membership VP. We look forward to hearing from you!

Goals of MOMS Club®

To provide a support group for mothers who choose to stay at home to raise their children


To provide a forum for topics of interest to mothers

To help children in the community

To perform at least one service project yearly helping needy children


Principles of MOMS Club®

That women must be free to choose their personal path to fulfillment

That, for women who choose it, raising children is an important and fulfilling full-time job

That a family's decision for a mother to stay at home to raise the children often involves considerable financial sacrifice

That there is no one right way to raise children, but our members have a common concern in raising their children in a healthful way

MOMS Club® of Fort Collins East is a local support group registered with the International MOMS Club® and its members have agreed to operate their support group in a nonprofit manner in accordance with all national and state laws.


History of MOMS Club®

In 1983, Mary James, an at-home mother in California, decided she was tired of being alone at home. She wanted to meet other at-home mothers and she wanted to find other at-home children for her children to play with. When she discovered there were no other organizations that met during the day and allowed her to come with her baby and preschooler, she decided to start a brand new organization just for at-home mothers, and the MOMS Club® was born.

The chapter she started was so successful, she knew mothers in other areas must be needing the MOMS Club® too. Soon she and other volunteers were helping mothers start MOMS Clubs® across the country!
