We have over 4200 members and are always welcoming more. If you're a woman living in San Francisco who is expecting or has at least one child under 12 years old, come join us! We provide an amazing array of services for moms in San Francisco--our very popular newsletter, forums, classifieds, events for kids, moms, and families, and lots more.

GGMG helps connect moms with similar-aged children and similar interests in the form of playgroups and special interest groups. 

Members run the playgroups themselves, and many groups become quite close and last years! Find out more about our playgroups.


It's not too late to send a foster child to summer camp!

GGMG is proud to be partnering up with San Francisco Court Appointed Special Advocates (SF CASA) from July 1 to August 31. We are excited to work with them to provide foster children opportunities to attend summer camp. SF CASA accepts donations for camp year round, so it’s not too late to help!

SFCASA is the only volunteer program in San Francisco that empowers everyday citizens to become officers of the court to serve as advocates and mentors to abused and neglected children in foster care. SFCASA’s VISION is that every child has a safe, loving home and is given the opportunity to thrive. Our MISSION is to transform the lives of abused and neglected foster youth by providing one consistent, caring volunteer advocate, trained to address each child’s needs in the court and the community.

Holden U. is a 14-year- old with mild cognitive impairment and ADHD. He has been in foster care for almost 3 years and last year was matched with a longtime CASA volunteer, Hal.

Working to identify physical activities for Holden that would promote self-esteem and simultaneously provide a useful outlet to help Holden decrease his ADHD symptoms, Hal landed on weekly small-group swimming lessons. Through 16 weeks of swimming lessons Holden learned an important life and survival skill and simultaneously developed greater self-confidence. The cost of four months of swimming lessons is $550. The skills that Holden learned and the more positive sense of self he acquired through the experience are priceless.

By donating to SF CASA, we as GGMG moms can truly make a difference in the lives of foster children. Please donate funds directly to SF CASA online at https://www.sfcasa.org/ggmg.

Thank you so much for your support of this drive! For more information, please email drives@ggmg.org.

Parks & Playgrounds

San Francisco has nearly 100 playgrounds in the city, so why not try somewhere new?  And new is right--playgrounds are continually being renovated. Check out our survey of San Francisco playgrounds with pictures, directions, and helpful tips!

Our Just-for-Moms Committee organizes events that are designed only for moms (and sometimes dads) such as CPR training, cooking classes, a night at the movies, trips to a spa, dinners, brunches, exercise classes, etc. All kinds of things to do without the kids!
Our Kids Activities Committee plans events for children, newborn to kindergarten age, that include fun, age-appropriate events several times a month.
Our Social Events Committee hosts three fantastic annual events (Halloween Party, Egg Hunt, and Summer Fair) for the entire family.
Join a group of mothers who have similar-aged children (or due dates!) at a Playgroup Formation Event.  Events are held at venues around SF and vary between week nights and weekends to accommodate different schedules.
GGMG, in partnership with Parents Place, hosts a variety of parenting seminars and workshops. Check the events calendar for upcoming sessions.
The Careers Committee organizes career focused events that include networking with other mothers and local companies/recruiters. We help mom’s navigate both their careers and kids successfully. Check the events calendar often for upcoming sessions.

Nurture ourselves, our children, our partners and our community.
Create an environment of support, information sharing and connection.
Learn, teach, create, have fun and provide balance in the lives of our growing families.

Our Motto: We are a work in progress...
