The Plano Area Mothers of Multiples (PAMOM) is for Mothers of Multiples (MOMs) as well as expectant MOMs.
It is a non-profit organization, founded in May 1994 and is affiliated with the Multiples of America, also known as the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs (NOMOTC) and the Texas Mothers of Multiples (TMOM).
Multiples of America is made up of over 25,000 members, representing over 400 local support groups nation-wide, and the state chapter, TMOM, offers a scholarship called the Bette Ade Scholarship which provides scholarship awards for higher education to students attending accredited universities, colleges, junior colleges, trade schools or vocational schools.
Our Mission Statement
PAMOM is dedicated to providing support to any parent or guardian of multiple-birth children. PAMOM strives to enhance knowledge and understanding of multiples through an exchange of ideas, information and communication between parents, educators, doctors and others.
Meetings and Events
PAMOM’s monthly meetings are on the second Tuesday of every month except in May and December. We meet in the Medical Center of Plano Building III auditorium (suite 315), which is across the street from the main hospital.
Breakout forums begin at 6:15 p.m., followed by refreshments at 7 p.m. and the general meeting at 7:30 p.m. Each month there is a program or guest speaker and a discussion period.
It’s not all business though, this is also the time to meet other MOMs, enter the latest raffle drawing, shop for goodies and just relax and enjoy some food and refreshments!
PAMOM also has various events throughout the year including playgroups for multiples, socials, holiday parties, MOM’s night out, garage sales, community service projects and children’s parties. Check out our Events page to see what’s coming up!
PAMOM publishes a quarterly newsletter called Carbon Copies and a monthly update called Carbon Copies Limited. Active members receive a link to download the current newsletter at the beginning of each month.
Our newsletter is filled with lots of great information and special features, and is a great way to keep up with club happenings. Each edition is filled with news from various PAMOM areas, beautiful photos of our multiples and other special memories, details on upcoming socials and other events and much more!
Advertising space is available and since the newsletter goes to about 400 MOMs it may be well worth it! If you are interested in advertising please contact our Advertising Coordinator.
