JPMoms is an on-line extension of a face-to-face community of parents in Jamaica Plain and immediately adjacent neighborhoods of Boston. Created in 2003, this grass-roots list was organized by JP mothers who wanted to stay in touch as their babies outgrew the JP New Moms' Support Group. Although our group was started by mothers, JP Moms is open to parents (mothers, fathers, and guardians) and expectant parents living in Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, West Roxbury, Roxbury, Hyde Park and Mission Hill.
JP Moms promotes an open, accepting, and supportive space for parents to connect with the local parenting community, ask and answer questions, share concerns, provide support, and exchange information related to parenting.
The group is not open to those who want to join to promote events, services or products, nor is it open to those who wish to use JP Moms for marketing or research. JP Moms is not open to nannies or daycare providers unless the providers are parents of small children.
