It’s hard making friends as an adult, especially as a mom in a new area. If you are new to Rochester or you’ve been here for a while, we hope to offer some helpful ways to connect with other moms.

Ways To Connect With Other Moms

Rochester Mom Collective Events

At Rochester Mom Collective, please check out our own events for moms to get together. Our Mom Meetups include Park Playdates, Coffee Shop Hops, Rochester Mom Walks, I’m New To Rochester! and more.

Mom Facebook Groups

At Rochester Mom Collective, we now have our own Facebook Community Group which moms can join and get to know other moms who are an active part of the Rochester Mom Collective.

There are several Mom Facebook Groups for the different areas of Rochester:

Mom Support Groups

Community Bible Study (CBS)

We love seeing what happens in people’s lives when they discover God through the study of His Word. We have Bible studies for all age groups and stages of life, from classes for toddlers and teens to classes for adults who are single and married. Together we explore the Bible and what it tells us about the God who has woven His story through history and is present with us now. There is a West Rochester and East Rochester class.

The Mom Co (Formerly MOPS)

MomCo is a non-profit organization that encourages and equips moms of young children to realize their potential as mothers, women and leaders, in relationship with Jesus and in partnership with the local church. MomCo — then, simply known as MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)—was founded in 1973 when seven women in Colorado invited moms to meet regularly to grow together as women, parents, and leaders, with the ultimate goal of reaching women with the hope of Jesus.

Parenting Village

Creating a family is an amazing time full of excitement, wonder, and questioning. Often families find themselves with nowhere to turn to share in their joy or worries. It takes a village to raise a child. Parenting Village fosters the health and well-being of caregivers and children in the Rochester area by offering support and connection for all families. We envision an inclusive, mutually supportive community in which all thrive. Founded by moms who understood the support parents need, we continually assess and respond with care and compassion to what caregivers need to navigate the parenting journey.

Parent to Parent of Western New York

Parents of a person with a developmental disability or special health care need can be connected one-to-one with another parent support member who has experience with having a family member with a disability or chronic illness. The experienced support parent provides emotional support to the referral parent and assists them in finding information and resources.
