Connecting with your local community has been hard this past year. But the rewards of investing in the moms right in your own backyard can be huge.
Connecting with moms in your local area can be exactly what you need when you feel lonely or exhausted.
You can find deep friendship and tangible support. Meeting at a local coffee shop, meeting at a playground to chat while the kids play, or taking a walk around the neighborhood to chat about all the things that nobody else in your life understands.
But you can also find a sense of purpose through giving back to the community where you live, work, and raise your family.
My guest this week on the Gotcha Mama podcast talks about exactly how to do that.
Hannah Stephenson has always had a heart for investing in her community and joining like-minded people together to do good.
She’s the mom of three kids and a former school counselor turned real estate agent in Nashville, Tennessee.
Between the challenges of mothering, working, and longing for a stronger sense of community, specifically in her local neighborhood, Hannah saw a need for a group where women could come together to deepen relationships with each other and also give back to the community.
So three years ago, she co-founded the Crieve Hall Women’s League. It’s a community-centered nonprofit membership group that serves the Crieve Hall area of Nashville, TN.
The Crieve Hall Women’s League has brought women together in this unprecedented time to provide tangible and emotional support for people living in the Crieve Hall neighborhood of Nashville, Tennessee.
If you’re craving to connect locally with moms in your own backyard, this is a conversation for you!
