Welcome from the Executive Director

Dear Friends,

alison-laferlita-300wWelcome to Mom-mentum (formerly, the National Association of Mothers' Centers), where we provide leadership, education, and advocacy to support mothers in meeting today's personal and professional challenges.

My involvement with Mom-mentum began when a member spotted me (looking like a distressed new mother to a four month old) in line at a store.  As she walked past me, she stopped dead in her tracks and said, "you need to know about the Mothers' Centers."  She was right.  I joined that afternoon and have since developed strong ties and friendships with the other members.  Friends I will have for life.

Two and a half years later, I had the honor of becoming the executive director of the national office and an amazing opportunity to bring change to the organization.

Please join our efforts to raise the level of visibility and respect that mothering and caregiving deserve. Support Mom-mentum by starting or joining a Mothers' Center program. Join as an individual member. Sign up for our eNews email updates. Serve on one of our committees.  Read and post to our blogs. Attend a webinar. Make a donation. Attend one of our events. Connect us to others who share our passion for supporting mothers. Volunteer your time and talents to further our vision of a society that cares for caregivers.

You can learn more about all of the different aspects of our work--and how you can be a part of it--on this site. Please take time to explore and discover all Mom-mentum stands for, offers, strives for, and has been working on for the past 39 years! The staff and I welcome your feedback and suggestions for the site and our work, so please don't hesitate to contact us.
