The Las Madres Mission


Las Madres began in 1953 when 12 mothers came together at a childbirth preparation class.  The Las Madres mission is to provide neighborhood and community-wide forums for educational assistance and support for children and their parents or caregivers pertaining to parenting and early childhood mental, physical and social development.

We do this by encouraging participation in activities/events including the following:
  • educational activities to promote early childhood mental, physical and social development on a weekly basis
  • advance family and parent education on a monthly basis
  • provide a place to share parenting information
  • provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas and information
  • organize or sponsor public interest programs of interest to parents and children
  • organize and support activities that develop confidence and self-esteem and positive parent-child relationships

President's Message

Executive President
Mom to Halo, 2013

I am beyond excited to serve as your 2017 President and look forward to working with you to grow Las Madres! I joined Las Madres in 2013 to make new friends. I am a single, working mom and I love the community that Las Madres provides. I look forward to meeting all of you this year and making many new friends!

I hope that you join us in volunteering and creating the community you wish to see. We are a 100% volunteer run organization and rely on our members to give back and keep Las Madres running so future parents can benefit from our organization as we have. If you are interested in discussing ways you can help, please contact me or your club officers. We have many open volunteer roles that have yet to be filled.

Have a question, concern, or just want to chat? Please feel free to reach out anytime! I look forward to a fabulous year with you!
