We have over 4200 members and are always welcoming more. If you're a woman living in San Francisco who is expecting a child or has at least one child under six 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.


Please join GGMG's 2014 Glitter Walk and support the lovely beaches and waterways that we all enjoy! Enlist your friends, your family and your kids to come out and have a great time at this year's event. We have ordered a rain free day this year as well as the Glitter Fairy!

When: Saturday, Sept. 20th from 9 AM - 12 Noon. Stay as little or as long as you can.

Where: Ocean Beach at Lincoln Blvd

Why: Our beaches are always inundated with trash and other debris. Without volunteers like you to make the beach sparkle, we would be without beautiful beaches to call our own.

How do I register?

Please visit the event post on GGMG's forum:

Or e-mail: glitterwalk@ggmg.org, and include the number of kids and adults in your party.

Thank you for supporting our St. Anthony's and My New Red Shoes Drive!

Thank you to everyone who supported our recent drives. St. Anthony's had a wonderful supply of clothes for their back-to-school event, so many that they had extras to pass out to kids that needed them. My New Red Shoes also received over 100 pairs of shoes that will go to kids in need during the back to school time as well.

"I just wanted to send out a very quick and a very huge thank you to all of you. It was an absolutely unbelievable day. The "store" had never looked better. The racks were packed. And the entire place had this incredible, positive energy to it. Kids had a ball too! Think we actually managed to make them forget that summer was over and another school year was beginning. Pretty ironic for that to happen at a Back to School event." - Allan Shapiro, St. Anthony's Manager for their Free Clothing Program (http://www.stanthonysf.org)

Thank you for your generous donation of 101 pairs of shoes to My New Red Shoes! Your support contributes to our ability to provide new shoes and retail clothing gift cards to thousands of homeless and low-income school-aged children and youth in the San Francisco Bay Area. With the help of partners and friends like you, My New Red Shoes has served more than 28,000 young people to date! This year alone, the lives of more than 6,500 children living in poverty will be brightened by new shoes and clothing, truly giving them the gift of confidence as they start the school year." - Minh Ngo, Executive Director (http://www.mynewredshoes.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...
