A Commitment to Education, Research and Support

Founded in 1960, Multiples of America aka NOMOTC is a network of more than 300 local clubs representing nearly 25,000 individual parents of multiples - twins, triplets, quadruplets and more. Multiples of America is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation funded by dues, donations and grants.

Mission

The Multiples of America aka NOMOTC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families of multiple birth children through education, research, and networking.  In partnering with local support groups, health care providers, researchers, and educators, and with the highest standards of integrity, respect and professionalism, we endeavor to aid parents of multiples and to raise public awareness of the unique qualities of multiple birth families.

Education

The Education Department of Multiples of America writes, edits and publishes all of the organization's written materials. Multiples of America's Notebook features current research, expert columns, book reviews, club news and multiple birth related articles. The department also produces a variety of booklets covering school placement, higher order multiples and bereavement issues.

Research

Multiples of America cooperates and participates in medical and psychological research projects. These involve multiples and/or their families and are conducted by qualified professional researchers. The organization also conducts its own research, surveying the membership on topics that relate to multiples and their parents. Multiples of America is a collective charter member of the International Society for Twin Studies (ISTS) and member of the Council of Multiple Birth Organizations (COMBO).

Support

sunflowerMultiples of America promotes the concept of mutual support for parents of multiples. Opportunities for self-help and emotional support are provided through local and statewide meetings. The Membership Department operates a Support Service Program to assist individuals in special situations. These services include pen pals for parents whose multiples have disabilities or for parents who have disabilities affecting their child rearing abilities; Higher Order Multiples support for families with triplets, quadruplets and more; Bereavement Support for those who have experienced the loss of a child or spouse; and Single Parent Outreach for those divorced, widowed or never married.
