Supporting Greater Springfield Area Families Since 2004

In November 2004, Kim Leistner, a local mom with a 2-year old and a 9-month-old, grew tired of not being able to access local area events and resources for her family in one convenient and current website.  She started an email newsletter with tips and upcoming events and emailed it to 30 of her friends.  A lot happens in ten years!  Springfield Moms is now an extensive online resource network for families with kids of all ages (from birth to college-bound) and serves as the area’s go-to website for What’s Happening!

Don’t let the name fool you…there’s something for everyone on Springfield Moms.

Many thanks to the readers, contributors, and amazing staff and volunteers that have been part of this journey!
