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!

SpecialNeedsMomsforMoms.com was launched in October 2o11 for mothers of special needs children to connect, find information, share and offer support and be inspired to engage. In just 4 short months the site has grown to 278 members. Every member of this social network is building a stronger special needs community by engaging with other mothers on a similar journey.
I want to highlight the strengths on Special Needs Moms for Moms and build upon what they do best. The members are a diverse group of mothers who share authentically.
