History

MOMS Club began in 1983 when Mary James, an at-home mother in California, decided she was tired of being alone at home. She wanted to meet other at-home moms and wanted to find other children for her children to play with. When she discovered that there were no other organizations that met during the day and allowed her to come with her baby and preschooler, she decided to start a brand new organization just for moms who are home during the day.

The chapter Mary James started was so successful that she knew moms in other areas must be needing the MOMS Club, too. Soon, she and other volunteers were helping moms start MOMS Clubs across the country and around the world!

The MOMS Club of Turnersville began in July 2000. The first (of many) MOMS Nights Out was at Italian Bistro (now Terra Nova). The chapter grew because it filled a need in our area. We currently have approximately 45 members from a variety of backgrounds and with children of all ages.
