MOPS groups are local communities that help moms be better moms by understanding their unique needs, challenges and joys — in this vital season of early mothering. For over 35 years, MOPS has been creating authentic communities where moms gather to experience encouragement, support and hope. But, it doesn’t stop there! Through training and development customized to women in this stage of life, and through do-able service opportunities, MOPS grows moms to make a better world.
“MOPS has changed my life. I am a better daughter, wife and mother because of MOPS,” says MOPS mom Amanda.
Every mom is welcomed, accepted and inspired to reach her potential and recognize her influence within her family and her world. MOPS believes that better moms really do make a better world.
How does MOPS help make better moms that make a better world? Primarily through MOPS group that meet all over the world in more than 30 countries and in over 4,000 groups in the United States. One MOPS mom, Nicole, says, “My MOPS group has made me feel that I am not alone.”
In addition to groups, MOPS International provides relevant mom-tested resources, including MomSense magazine — a premier benefit of the MOPS International Membership — and also through the MOPS Web site (www.MOPS.org) and books written specifically for moms.
Although mothering preschoolers is at times a lonely challenge, MOPS is providing a welcome break for moms; a chance for moms to make new friends and an opportunity for moms to know they are not alone in the struggles and joys of raising young children.
