My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mommies Network, Charlotte, NC, USA
The Mommies Network has been an amazing gift for myself and my family over the last few years. I am truly blessed to have stumbled upon my local chapter when my oldest child was about 6 months old. Through my local chapter, I found the support of other local mothers that knew what I was feeling. I've also been fortunate enough to volunteer for the organization both at the chapter level and also at the national level.
When I first joined, I was simply looking for an online message board to talk with other moms. However, I've found that this network is SO much more than that. I've seen "the mommies" come together to pull off some extraordinary things in my time as a member and a volunteer for this nonprofit. Each chapter offers LOCAL support to moms. There are playdates, mom's night out events, family events, etc. In addition, each chapter is encouraged to get out and get involved in our communities. Many chapters have ongoing volunteer efforts with other local charities, and most of the larger chapters take donations a couple of times a year for the needs of various other charities in their community.
There simply is no other organization that offers the support to mothers that TMN offers and I'm incredibly fortunate to be able to say that I'm involved with such an amazing cause.

I've experienced the results of this organization in every aspect of my life. I am raising a family away from all of my family and friends and my local chapter of TMN has become my "local" family.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Get more people involved in volunteering and making the organization bigger, better, and stronger. This way, we could reach as many mommies in need of support as possible.
