Young Mops

We are a local branch of MOPS International. Young MOPS, or Young Moms of Purpose, offers support and education to young, and at- risk moms who choose to parent their children. Through group meetings, moms are fed, loved and supported in activities and lessons on parenting, healthy relationships, and finding their purpose in Christ. The local chapter has been active in Buffalo for over 14 years and meets in Cheektowaga.

It is a 501c3 organization and 100% of donations will help at risk moms in the Buffalo area.

Young MOPS meet approximately two Tuesday evenings per month from September to May. (see schedule below)

  • Free childcare, a hot meal, games, crafts, guest speakers and discussions on important topics.
  • Transportation can often be provided to young moms in Buffalo or nearby areas.
