Purpose & Guidelines

The South Loop Moms Group has grown to over 130 families and continues to grow. As more new members join, we want everyone to understand the goals, expectations and purpose of the SLMNT. The board researched other moms groups across the country to use their experience to our benefit. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us.

Purpose:
– Support and offer friendship to one another in our role as mothers and expectant mothers
– Plan fun activities to do with our children
– Recruit and welcome new members

– Dues are $60 per calendar year – due by Jan 15.
– After July 1st  $30
