Holistic Moms Network’s Local Chapters Merge

The Holistic Moms Network's Westchester and Manhattan chapters have merged into one. Founded in 2003, HMN is a national nonprofit organization with local community chapters across the country supporting families interested in holistic health and green living. 

Andria Somers, HMN’s executive director, says the organization is all about community and connection. “Our mission is to provide a safe, supportive environment in which families can access resources and become an integral part of a supportive, local, intentional community that gathers in person.”  

Lindsey James is the community organizer for the Manhattan and Westchester Chapter of HMN. She currently resides in Westchester County.

The newly merged New York-area chapter is looking for additional volunteers to help the chapter grow and thrive, especially after the challenges of the past couple of years, Somers says. The volunteers, known as community organizers, organize monthly gatherings that are open to the public, and members are encouraged to plan additional events for the community. 

In addition to the local chapter events, HMN members also receive benefits as members of the national organization, including a homeopathy e-course, an ongoing discount on supplements, and more. Anyone interested in volunteering for the Manhattan and Westchester Chapter should email the community development organizer at [email protected]
