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.


Show Your Support for Women and Children in Need by Donating to La Casa de las Madres

GGMG is proud to be partnering with La Casa de las Madres from February 15 to March 7. We are excited to work with them in order to support other mothers and their children at a time of crisis. Often, mothers and their children will leave home at a moment's notice with little to nothing, and your donation will enable La Casa to provide them with a safe home away from home.

The mission of La Casa de las Madres is to respond to calls for help from domestic violence victims of all ages, 24 hours a day, and provide a safe haven. They give survivors the tools to transform their lives. They seek to prevent future violence by educating the community and by redefining public perceptions about domestic violence. You can learn more here.

We are collecting donations of the following items on behalf of La Casa de las Madres:

  • Diapers (especially sizes 4, 5, and 6)
  • Wipes
  • Formula
  • New socks and underwear for women, teens, and children

You can bring your donations to any of the following locations and put them in the bins there:

  • Play Haven (254 Laguna Honda Blvd.)
  • Imagination Playhouse (5628 Geary Blvd.)
  • Peekadoodle (900 North Point St.)
  • Recess (470 Carolina St.)
  • Peek-a-Boo Factory (2 West Portal Ave.)

You can also shop from this Amazon Wish List and the items will be delivered directly to the organization.

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...
