The Story of Us
Brown Mamas is an organization created out of friendship and genuine love for Black mothers. Our founder, Muffy Mendoza, started Brown Mamas back in 2012 as a way to make friends. What started as a few moms meeting at her home, has ballooned into the premier support group for Black moms in the region servicing over 1,000 moms online and nearly 100 in-person. We operate under the premise that making moms better moms, makes dads better dads, children become better adults and ultimately, communities become better communities. By helping moms to enjoy their motherhood journey, gain the resources and access necessary to raise happy health kids and by providing a socially supportive environment we believe Black mothers can help unlock the key to uplifting Black communities.
Brown Mama Shop
We believe that you are the BEST mom you can possibly be. Now, it's time for you to believe it. Our #GoodMama Gear is the ultimate way to express your confidence in being the Original awesome Brown Mama that you are! Get ya gear gurl!
Rather than telling you how to be a mother, this book will guide you through the understanding that motherhood is not just about taking care of your children, but it’s about transforming into the woman who you are divinely destined to be.
Black moms do not have to sacrifice their happy for strength. We can be both. Express your happy side with our signature tshirt. This tee comes in grey only (for now). Make a statement in our %100 cotton, machine washable, v-neck tee.

What do the Mamas Say?
Pittsburgh Brown Mamas has bridged a gap in the city. Our moms agree that the support, conversations and positive interaction in PBM is parallel to none.
I love this group. It's so insightful, informative and uplifting. It's also a nice change of fb "scenery" from the fb "drama."
I love this group! You are so informative, inspirational and encouraging I have to stop by everyday to see what's going on!
We had such a wonderful time at the Pittsburgh Brown Mamas' cookout! Thank you for having us I look forward to coming to many more events!
