The Las Madres Mission


Las Madres began in 1953 when 12 mothers came together at a childbirth preparation class.  The Las Madres mission is to provide neighborhood and community-wide forums for educational assistance and support for children and their parents or caregivers pertaining to parenting and early childhood mental, physical and social development.

We do this by encouraging participation in activities/events including the following:
  • educational activities to promote early childhood mental, physical and social development on a weekly basis
  • advance family and parent education on a monthly basis
  • provide a place to share parenting information
  • provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas and information
  • organize or sponsor public interest programs of interest to parents and children
  • organize and support activities that develop confidence and self-esteem and positive parent-child relationships
