Welcome Mocha Moms!

The Manhattan Mocha Moms chapter aims to establish friendship, support and positive reinforcement. Our goal is to provide an enriching climate for moms, a nurturing environment for our children, and an uplifting atmosphere for our family unit.

Our local chapter holds bi-weekly support group meetings/play groups, field trips, and other cultural, educational and charitable activities and events. Our annual dues are $50, which gives you membership into our organization, including access to our on-line community web group, attendance at fieldtrips (outings for our children), Moms’ Nights Out/In, regular support group meetings, and many other resources that we have planned for the upcoming year. And most importantly, it gives you the opportunity to communicate, share, and form friendships with one of the greatest group of women (and children!) you’ll ever meet!

In the Beginning

Mocha Moms, Inc. began with the publishing of a newsletter called Mocha Moms in the hopes of connecting with other at-home mothers of color across the country. The newsletter was intended to encourage these mothers to feel good about their choice as well as to provide information to help them be the best and most important influence in their children’s lives. The first Mocha News was distributed to over 100 moms across the country in the spring of 1997. From this newsletter the original moms decided to form a support group called Mocha Moms, Inc. The first support group meeting was held in October of that year, in Cheverly, MD. There are now over 100 chapters throughout the United States and the organization is continually growing and evolving to meet the needs of our moms, their families, and the communities they live in.

Mocha Moms, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Mocha Moms, Inc. does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex, gender, socio-economic level, education, or religion. Anyone who supports the mission and purpose of Mocha Moms, Inc. is welcome to join.
