My name is Sara Hodge and I am the mom behind Mums ‘n Chums, a social networking site created especially for parents in North Halton and surrounding areas. Through surveying groups of local parents, I came to realize I wasn’t alone in wishing it was easier to meet other local families for fun social time and lasting friendships. There are lots of excellent parenting sites in the Halton Region- I even joined some of them when my first son was a baby. However, I found that none of them had a focus on North Halton. A support network here was badly needed and so I set out to create it! In addition to our local events, our blog articles, contests and regular chats with special guests have expanded our reach to parents well beyond the Halton border.
We had an incredibly successful first year, adding over 400 active forum members and enjoying many unexpected opportunities, including being able to attend the first ShesConnected conference. Continually improving the site AND growing our parenting community has made Mums ‘n Chums a multi-talented social hub and we look forward to seeing what we can accomplish in 2011!
