About The Family Club

Our History
In December 2002, the Mothers' Center of Milwaukee, a branch of The National Organization of Mothers' Centers, which served area families since 1985, was re-named The Family Club.  Now an independent, non-profit, community organization, our goals remain the same.  

Our Mission
The Family Club is an independent, non-profit, community organization that strives to connect families.  We seek to provide a relaxed environment where parents and caregivers can enjoy companionship and conversation, while children delight in carefree playtime, craft projects, and group outings with newfound friends.

The Family Club is a wonderful way for adults and children in the Milwaukee area to get to know one another. Many lasting friendships have been made over the years thanks to The Family Club. We hope you come and visit us to see if our playgroup is right for you. Click here for detailed information about playgroup meeting times and location.

We frequently arrange group outings to places like museums, the zoo, restaurants, family farms and more. Once you become a member, you will get information about outings and special events.

Our Members
Our members are made up of families from throughout the North Shore, from Bayside to Milwaukee, and everywhere in between.  Some families are lifelong Milwaukee County residents, and others are new to the area from as far away as China and India.  Children are accompanied to playgroups and outings with mothers, fathers, grandparents, nannies, and babysitters.  The Family Club is a diverse, welcoming community.

We keep members updated through posts on this website, email updates, and on Facebook. Our Facebook is a closed group. If you are a member and would like a Facebook invitation, please request one here.

There is no cost for the first visit. If you'd like to join after that, you will need to complete membership forms and pay dues.  Click here for more information about membership.

Our Leadership
The Family Club is led by a group of volunteer board members who change from year to year.  Board members are led by a president and are responsible for coordinating all aspects of The Family Club, creating a positive experience for all involved.  The 2014/2015 board members are as follows:

  • President, Treasurer - Jennifer
  • Membership Coordinator - Margaret
  • Secretary and Bulletin Boards - Jaime

Our Location
The Family Club is located upstairs in the North Shore Presbyterian Church (NSPC) at 4048 N. Bartlett Ave, Shorewood, WI 53211.  Although our organization is not religiously affiliated, we are grateful for the generosity of the NSPC for providing our organization with a wonderful facility for many years.  We enjoy the respectful relationship we have with them.  The Family Club consists of two sunny playrooms filled with toys geared towards infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
