Mid-Atlantic Parents of Multiples (MAPOM)
The Mid-Atlantic Parents of Multiples (MAPOM) was founded in 1975. Our purpose is:
- to unite Parents of Multiples clubs in the Mid~Atlantic area
- to serve as a liaison so member clubs may exchange information for the mutual benefit of individual members
- to promote formation of new mothers twins clubs, assist in their establishment, and support their growth
- to encourage participation in research projects
- to collect and disseminate information relative to the physical, mental, and social well-being of multiple birth children and their families
- A regional convention is held on the fourth or fifth Saturday in April annually and is hosted by the member MAPOM clubs.
This year’s MAPOM Scholarship application deadline is March 15, 2017.
Our scholarship is available to incoming college students, current college students, and graduate students. The applicant does not need to be a multiple; he/she may be a parent or sibling within a family of an active member of a participating club.
MAPOM collects money during convention for seriously needy individuals and families of MAPOM members.
