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.


School Supply and Preschool-Sized Clothing Drive for St. Anthony’s: April 14-28

In partnership with the JCCSF

In response to the difficulty Bay Area families may face, St. Anthony's Free Clothing Program will be holding its 4th Annual Back to School Day at the end of summer to provide over 230 families with new clothes, backpacks, and school supplies for their big day.

Last year they were in emergency need of preschool-sized clothes. Help us build their inventory earlier, to ensure all preschoolers in their program start the school year with a new set of clothes and supplies.

Help St. Anthony’s build their clothing inventory to make sure no child goes to school unprepared.

Please donate:

  • Clothing for preschool boys & girls (sizes 3-6T)
  • Backpacks
  • School supplies
Donations need to be in new or gently used and clean condition. (St. Anthony's does not have access to a washer / dryer).

In 2013, the Free Clothing Program served:
  • 1,450 families
  • 2,856 children
  • 19,230 sets of clothing distributed

Please drop off your donations at the JCCSF: 3200 California St, San Francisco, CA 94118. If you cannot drop off your donation there, please e-mail drives@ggmg.org and we can work with you to get your donation there.

La Casa De Las Madres Drive

Thank you to everyone who made the La Casa drive a success, we raised over 1300 for the organization and collected many clothes that will enable them to support women and children who come to their shelters and programs. Did not have time to donate? Please visit their website: http://www.lacasa.org

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...
