The Metro Mothers Network is a volunteer not-for-profit charitable organization which evolved from the YWCA Take-a-Break program.
We offer two types of programs to provide an opportunity for mothers to meet in a supportive group setting: women with small children (MumNet), and women with older children (MumVet).
Helping women face the challenges of motherhood by fostering their emotional, mental, and physical well-being in a mutually supportive, community-based group environment.

Fundraising and Volunteering Key Part of MumNet Experience
MumNet offers great opportunity for personal development and leadership through our volunteer positions within each group and throughout the network. Fundraising is also an important part of the MumNet experience; to keep member fees affordable members participate in three fundraising initiatives each year.
