Description

Mocha Moms is a non-profit organization established in 1997. The community gathers moms of color in different local, in-person chapters around the United States, to share parenting experiences and to rely on a support group from which to draw strength and knowledge to grow as a mother and community leader.

Local chapters host weekly meetings where members join to chat and share experiences. Monthly, there are also special events like night-outs and get-togethers, where moms can hang out and spend quality time with each other. Additionally, you can join other events like activities with the children, guest speakers, and community service initiatives.

To join, you have to pay an annual membership. There are different member levels:

Place
Meetings

Mocha Moms hosts weekly meetings in different states of the United States. The meetings are designed to serve as a support group for moms of color, doing activities with or without children. Mocha Moms also organizes monthly, special get-togethers and other events like bringing guest speakers, and doing community service together.

Learning Events

Occasionally, the community will invite guest speakers to discuss relevant topics for moms. These are excellent opportunities for members to grow and evolve as moms. You can leverage these events to bring questions and get the answers you need.

Networking Events

Mocha Moms have weekly local chapters where support groups gather to talk about their most pressing issues at parenting and about life in general. Additionally, there are monthly get-togethers where moms get out to socialize without children. These are awesome opportunities to network and develop deeper bonds with the rest of the members of the community.

The group support meetings are often called "playgroups" because many moms bring their children. This is also a great opportunity for children to socialize and make new friends.

Lastly, the community has national networks that communicate virtually, addressing certain segments of the Mocha Moms' community.

The networks are:

  • Homeschooling Network
  • Marriage Support Group
  • Military Mochas
  • Mochapreneur Network
  • Mochas Supporting Special Needs Children
  • Mochas with Adult Children (MAC)
  • Tweens and Teens Network
  • Mocha Singles (Coming Soon)

These are private networks that every member of Mocha Moms can join in order to find additional support.

Benefits with other companies
