Our primary goal in creating Twin Cities Moms Blog was to connect moms online, as well as offline through playdates and our events. We know that being a mom is the most rewarding job we can do, but it’s also the hardest. We all need some support now and then from others who know just what we are going through! We’ve loved doing this through our larger events, but this year we are also looking to incorporate some more intimate ways for moms to connect with one another.
The Twin Cities covers seven different counties and we would like to make it feel a little smaller! We’ve decided to create Neighborhood Groups that will help you all facilitate playdates, mommy meet ups, learn more about your specific neighborhood or simply pose a question to a group of moms. Whether you’re a new mom, new to the city, or just want to meet new friends, our these groups will be the perfect way to connect with moms in your area.
We currently have 15 neighborhood groups available to join. Don’t see your neighborhood? Because the Twin Cities is so large, we aren’t able to list every suburb – start with the group closest to your city and hop in. We’re just starting this program, so please let us know if your city isn’t close to the listed groups so we can get your area covered. Just click on your neighborhood and ask to join the group!
Each group is run by volunteers called Mombassadors – these ladies plan events each month with the intention of gathering people in person. We absolutely love our online community, but what we’d love most, is to help you get connected in person to other Moms in your own neighborhoods within the Twin Cities!
