Mocha Moms, Inc. began with the publishing of a newsletter called Mocha Moms for the purpose of connecting with other stay-at-home mothers of color across the country. The newsletter was intended to encourage these mothers to feel good about their choice as well as to provide information to help them be the best and most important influence in their children's lives. The first edition of Mocha News was distributed to over 100 moms across the country in the spring of 1997.
After its huge response, the founders of the newsletter decided to form a support group called Mocha Moms, Inc. The first support group meeting was held in October of that year, in Cheverly, MD. There are now over 100 chapters throughout the United States and the organization is continually growing and evolving to meet the needs of our moms, their families, and the communities they live in. You can find more information on our national headquarters at mochamoms.org
