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.

 


Change the lives of Moms in Need this May!

GGMG is partnering with the Homeless Prenatal Program (http://homelessprenatal.org) and Help A Mother Out ( http://www.helpamotherout.org) to host a fund drive during the month of May. The drive will raise funds for Help A Mother Out and diapers for both of these organizations.

Help a Mother Out works to improve baby and family well being by increasing access to diapers for families in need. We distribute diapers to families in need through a network of social service partners including Early Head Start programs, First 5 family resource centers, homeless and foster children services, public health departments and others. We also advocate for the inclusion of diapers in the social safety net.

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.

Please consider joining us in supporting these organizations in one of (3) ways,

Diapers can also be donated to the JCCSF on California Street, where the diapers will be directed toward HPP.

Thank you so much for your support of this Drive! For more information, please email drives@ggmg.org.

 

Thank you from St. Anthony's Foundation:

Thanks to the JCCSF and GGMG members, St. Anthony's collected enough clothing to fill 6.5 of their clothing racks and filled several barrels. "The clothing looked great and we can’t wait to give out the clothing to our families." - St. Anthony's Foundation

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...
