As part of The Mommies Network, HighCountryMommies is a free community for moms in Ashe, Avery, and Watauga Counties, North Carolina. We realize that all moms need local support -- and who can't use another friend? HighCountryMommies offers a simple way to connect with local moms for friendship, support and fun. Each month, we offer many face-to-face events for our members, their children and their families. Our members also have access to our private discussion forums to share information on everything from where to get the best haircut to tips on transitioning to a "big kid" bed.

Share Your Time and Talents

We know that money can be tight and with fundraisers coming in left and right from the schools, the last thing you need is another candle or bucket of cookie dough. While we do appreciate financial donations (and rely on them to ensure our network remains free for our moms!), we know we would be nothing without the amazing volunteers who donate their time and talents each day to mentor and support our members and volunteers and to administer the various tasks required of a nonprofit organization.

Be a Conversation Starter

Close your eyes.

Remember a time when you were the stranger in the room – whether it was ten years ago in a classroom or two weeks ago at your husband’s company party.

Remember what it felt like to walk into the room, to see the other people in groups, laughing and talking. That unsettling feeling in the pit of your stomach that reminds you that you are the only person here who doesn’t know a single soul.

It Only Takes a Spark!

At The Mommies Network and our chapters, our goal is to build community. We want moms to have a place to go and meet other local moms. We strive to use technology to facilitate in-person connections. We understand that we moms lead busy lives, filled with work, home and family, and it’s tough to take a break – to feel like you deserve a break.

You are here for a reason. You joined our chapter at some point to meet other moms, to find support, to make friends – to connect. You came to our chapter looking for community.
