Rifle Moms for Moms owner Leanne Worton celebrated the site’s 1 Year Anniversary with an evening news interview on ABC’s KREX Channel 5 News. The segment highlighted the site’s open forums to discuss anything from social planning to tips on child care. Rifle mom Kristine Llacuna uses the site to help her balance between her roles as mother and business owner.
Llacuna says, “One of the biggest things with being a business mom, is there are other business moms on there. It’s been nice talking to people about how hard it is to run a business and be a mom, sometimes it gets a little hectic.”
Leanne Worton started as a member of nearby Carbondale Moms for Moms in January of 2011. As a mother and active community member she loved the site so much that four months later she launched a Moms for Moms site in her own rural community of Rifle, CO in April 2011.
“Coming here with a 2 year old, it was really tough to find other moms who were in the same place that I was. Rifle is a rural area and it can be hard to make friends as a mom, says Worton.
Now one year later Rifle Moms for Moms has 221 members who have discussed 222 Forum topics, posted 775 Events, shared 335 photos, and created 24 niche Groups. Congratulations Leanne, you are building a stronger community by engaging the moms in Rifle!

Every Moms for Moms Communities site that has launched in a local community has caught the eye of the local media. This week, mom owner of Rifle Moms for Moms, Leanne Worton was featured in The Citizen Telegram. Leanne launched the Rifle site in May 2011, and just three short months later her membership has grown to over 100 local mothers! Congratulations to Leanne for all her dedication to her community, and thank you to the Citizen Telegram for recognizing this valuable community resource for mothers.
What separates this site from the other social networks, other than focusing on parenting, is that this site has a hyper local focus on the people within the respective communities. That is the whole point.
“We want to keep it really local so that it feels very safe,” Worton said.
The site: Riflemomsformoms.com, focuses on the towns of Rifle, Silt and New Castle
