Mothers & More East Bay Chapter
Meeting Information & Calendar

Mothers & More chapter meetings provide a place for women to voice the emotional and practical issues they face making the transition from being "out in the world" to being at home and maybe, back to work again.

Mothers & More East Bay Chapter emphasizes the needs of mothers.  We believe taking time for yourself will enable you to give more to others.

  • The East Bay Chapter meets every 3rd Thursday of each month.  Meetings start at 7:30 pm.
  • Meetings are held at Zion Lutheran Church, 5201 Park Boulevard, Oakland
  • Regular meetings are held at night without children, children 0-6 months are welcome though.
  • Meeting programs focus primarily on mothers' (women's) issues and interests, including childrearing topics.
