Join our Community & Conversation Neighborhood Groups


DC Area Moms main goal is to help moms connect with one another in meaningful ways along with encouraging moms and providing relevant resources. If you are new to the area or have been here a while, we all need community–and some of us need it fast! No one should mother alone! We literally need one another to survive and thrive in motherhood.

First, for all things family, please join our large DC Area Moms & Families Group. To be in community with only moms, join our DC Area Moms Group. Scroll down to join niche neighborhood and interest groups.

With this being a passion of ours, please join a local neighborhood community & conversation group! We are ready to be friends, meet up, listen, encourage one another, etc. You belong!

The Washington, DC Metropolitan area is large and these smaller neighborhood groups are meant to make our area seem a little bit smaller. With our Community & Conversation groups, you can ask questions, set-up playdates, mommy meet ups, MNO, or simply learn more about your specific neighborhood.  Whether you’re a new mom, new to the city, or just want to meet new friends, this is a wonderful way to connect with moms in your area.

Ready to join? Just click on your neighborhood and ask to join the group! We want to note that these groups are run by local Mombassadors who help organize gatherings, playdates, and more!

Courtney Whittington
Courtney was born and raised in Louisiana where she met her husband (married in 2005). They have moved several times, but finally feel very settled in NW DC after moving back in 2016. She has four energetic kids: Cormac (2010), Evangeline (2013), Solomon (2016), and Antoinette (2019). She thinks motherhood is absolutely wonderful, but is constantly trying to figure out how to manage it all. She spends her days talking Star Wars, playing with legos, doing crafts, having tea parties, and chasing her toddler. Motherhood is wonderful and wild and in 2017 she banded together with other mothers to start DC Area Moms to inspire, learn, and grow together. She loves morning coffee, chocolate, chatting with people since she's an extrovert, a clean house (which is rare these days). She dislikes when her kids don't listen the first time, she abhors littering, and doesn't enjoy shopping.
