Greater Newburyport Mothers and Families


  • Overview of Organization and Services:
    Dedicated to providing fun and friendship for the families, the Greater Newburyport Mothers and Families Club (GNFC) connects members with local family-friendly activities, events and educational programs to keep our community safe and happy.

    Founded in 1999 with only a few families, the GNFC now has more than 900 member families and counting, a true testament to the Club’s commitment to the Newburyport community and surrounding areas.

    From monthly kids’ events to various adult outings, the GNFC is a great way to get your family out of the house, including playgroup-matching assistance and a variety of sub-groups for moms and dates to suit a wide range of interests and hobbies like Running Moms, Stay-At-Home Dads and Mothers of Multiples.

    Joining the GNFC also provides your family access to a member-only online community that features a calendar of events, a list of local babysitters and information on member-run businesses so you can help support local.

    Additional member benefits include an annual Early Education Fair, member assistance through the GNFC’s In-A-Pinch program, and numerous ways to help the community through outreach efforts such as food drives, park cleanups and Habitat for Humanity.
