About PeninsulaMommies

MISSION

To provide a safe, secure, FREE place for mothers to find support and encouragement from other mothers and to empower them to be better women, parents and community leaders.

PHILOSOPHY

No one should have to pay a fee to make a friend, so we offer free membership to any mother within the community who wishes to join. Members gain camaraderie and support through an online forum that is available 24 hours a day and events around the area where mothers can meet face-to-face and develop real friendships that can last a lifetime.

We believe that, working together, mothers can change the world - one family, one neighborhood, one community at a time. PeninsulaMommies is a connecting force, helping us each to make a difference in our own lives, in our families and in the places we call home.

ABOUT US

PeninsulaMommies.com developed from Site Administrator Barb Parcell’s personal need to make local connections after moving to a new town eight months pregnant with her second child. She wanted a way to meet and get to know moms in her area and get their kids together for some informal playtime, as well as to share the experience of visiting local attractions such as parks and museums. After searching all of the local resources and finding only pay-for-membership and religious groups, groups with application forms and exclusive membership requirements and activities focused on one child, she turned to a website centered around getting people together to meet locally. Within three months, the group went from six moms to nearly forty and they outgrew the capabilities of the original site that had recently started charging for membership. She then found The Mommies Network, which was dedicated to helping groups like hers and offered all of the features that they needed – for free.

We chat online in a private forum - discussing everything from the best photographers to the worst temper tantrums and all that lies between - and meet-up regularly at member-driven events around town. Whether it's a late night commiseration on a crying baby (there are 4 am posts to prove it) or a Mom's Night Out, PeninsulaMommies provides what our members need, when and how they need it.

But PeninsulaMommies is more than just a community of moms. It's moms in and for the community. Our members work full time, stay home full time, work part time, represent many races, are pregnant for the first time, are adoptive moms, were adopted themselves, recently moved to the area, have lived here all our lives, have twins, are happy with one, are single moms, are searching out schools and have watched their kids graduate. In other words, we are a reflection of mothers in the real world. And we help out our neighbors as much as ourselves through organized fundraisers and other charity events - specifically those focused on providing for mothers and their children.
