We have over 4200 members and are always welcoming more. If you're a woman living in San Francisco who is expecting or has at least one child under 12 years old, come join us! We provide an amazing array of services for moms in San Francisco--our very popular newsletter, forums, classifieds, events for kids, moms, and families, and lots more.

GGMG helps connect moms with similar-aged children and similar interests in the form of playgroups and special interest groups. 

Members run the playgroups themselves, and many groups become quite close and last years! Find out more about our playgroups.


Donate your Gently Used Costumes to Children in Need Today!

GGMG is partnering with the Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP) to host a halloween costume drive through November 15th.

The Homeless Prenatal Program works to break the cycle of childhood poverty. They do this by finding housing for homeless families, providing prenatal and parenting support, community health worker training, stabilizing families by addressing issues related to mental health, domestic violence, and substance abuse in their clients’ lives, in addition to basic emergency needs and child care, providing a community technology center for clients and providing families with tools to build financial stability.

Costumes should be new or gently used, from newborn sizes to age 10. Please consider joining us in supporting this organization in one of two ways:

  1. Donate funds directly to HPP via their website:
    Please be sure to choose "GGMG Gives" in the gift designation scroll down.This will help us track donations.
  2. Drop off new or gently used costumes at the following locations:

    • Imagination Playhouse at 5628 Geary Street

Parks & Playgrounds

San Francisco has nearly 100 playgrounds in the city, so why not try somewhere new?  And new is right--playgrounds are continually being renovated. Check out our survey of San Francisco playgrounds with pictures, directions, and helpful tips!

Our Just-for-Moms Committee organizes events that are designed only for moms (and sometimes dads) such as CPR training, cooking classes, a night at the movies, trips to a spa, dinners, brunches, exercise classes, etc. All kinds of things to do without the kids!
Our Kids Activities Committee plans events for children, newborn to kindergarten age, that include fun, age-appropriate events several times a month.
Our Social Events Committee hosts three fantastic annual events (Halloween Party, Egg Hunt, and Summer Fair) for the entire family.
Join a group of mothers who have similar-aged children (or due dates!) at a Playgroup Formation Event.  Events are held at venues around SF and vary between week nights and weekends to accommodate different schedules.
GGMG, in partnership with Parents Place, hosts a variety of parenting seminars and workshops. Check the events calendar for upcoming sessions.
The Careers Committee organizes career focused events that include networking with other mothers and local companies/recruiters. We help mom’s navigate both their careers and kids successfully. Check the events calendar often for upcoming sessions.

Nurture ourselves, our children, our partners and our community.
Create an environment of support, information sharing and connection.
Learn, teach, create, have fun and provide balance in the lives of our growing families.

Our Motto: We are a work in progress...
