Celebrating families of every shape, size and makeup


We are an inclusive family-oriented organization striving to support our community and enrich the lives of our members.


We are an inclusive and family-oriented organization that strives to support our community and enrich the lives of our members by cultivating connections and friendships between local parents, caregivers, and their children.

HWMC provides social events, resources, and education to families across the north shore of Massachusetts. As a member-driven, public-spirited group, we actively invest in and work to build an uplifting and inclusive environment for our membership. While we are founded upon a recognized need to support the unique role of motherhood, we know that parenthood takes many forms and that our children and families face varying circumstances and needs. We welcome and celebrate families of every shape, size, and makeup.

Top story

May was filled with fun events and we have a packed June calendar to carry us into summer break. As a reminder the Board goes on a bit of a hiatus during July/August to allow our volunteers some time off with their families. Book Club is running through the summer months, so check out the upcoming book selections and be sure to add them to your beach bag! The WhatsApp chat threads for Toddler Playgroup and Baby Group can also be used to plan get togethers throughout the summer months.

In June we hold our annual Board Changeover Meeting. We are equally excited to thank our departing members as we are to welcome our new volunteers as well as have familiar faces take on new roles. We do our best to thank and celebrate them on this special June evening, but if you see any Board members in the next few weeks, please join us in thanking them for another great year of programming and for their dedication to connecting and serving families on the North Shore.
