Building community among mothers is an important part of Fort Worth Moms. I mean, it says so right there in our mission statement: Fort Worth Moms exists to provide resources, encouragement, and community to parents in the Tarrant County area through its website, original content, social media platforms, events, sponsorship partners, and Neighbor Groups.
Our Neighbor Groups iniative is a vital part of us living out that mission. But it’s a strange one . . . well, strange in the sense that it’s weird for a publishing group to create and nuture groups so that moms can meet, make friends, and encourage each other. That’s out of the ordinary, right? Yet, it is so much part of our mission, our purpose, it just makes sense.
While we can provide online resources, stories of encouragement and solidarity, and information, that publishing medium alone doesn’t serve as the connector of women. We want mothers to feel less alone, less isolated — and that is true now more than ever!
Thus, we are looking for women who are the connectors. Women who are comfortable building community in a digital space. Who are aren’t afraid to jump right in there and start discussion, to cheer for other moms, and to say “I know what you mean!”
We are looking for women who can serve other moms in the Neighbor Group leader role. Right now, we are looking for women to take leadership of these regional and topical groups:
- Adoptive Moms Tarrant County Area
- Arlington + Mansfield Area (think Arlington, Mansfield, and Kennedale)
- Fertility Discussion with Tarrant County Moms
- Northwest Fort Worth (think the areas north of I-30, west of I-35W, inside the 820 loop)
- Tarrant County Grandmothers
- Tarrant County Moms of Multiples
- Tarrant County South (think Crowley, Burleson, Cleburne)
- Southeast Fort Worth (think the areas south of I-30, east of I-35W, inside the 820 loop)
Our Neighbor Group leaders facilitate group discussions, ensure all group rules are being followed, and help organize in-person or virtual meet-ups. This is a volunteer position that requires five hours per month with a minimum six-month commitment.
