Who are we?

WAM & Fam is an independent parents group. We welcome families of all races, colors, religions, and national and ethnic origins without regard to sexual orientation, gender identify, or marital status. In the past, our members were typically parents who stayed at home with their children, but we are happy to have grown into a group comprised of parents and primary caregivers who stay at home, work out of the home, or do any combination of in and out of home work. Our group is not for au pairs and nannies. Visit our About page to learn how we've evolved over the past 20-plus years.

WAM & Fam activities and events


Playtime with friends

Our variety of activities offer parents flexibility yet reliability. Our monthly calendar has plenty of after school, evening, and weekend activities. And many of our playgroups are held during the day, when at-home parents need the most support.

WAM & Fam volunteer services


Community outreach

WAM & Fam also believes in showing our children how we can give back to our community and help our fellow members and neighbors. Visit our Volunteer services page for more information about the many ways in which we try to help others.
