According to the site's mission statement, Rifle Moms for Moms is a local community resource to connect, inform, support and inspire the mothering community around Rifle.

What separates this site from the other social networks, other than focusing on parenting, is that this site has a hyper local focus on the people within the respective communies. That is the whole point. "We want to keep it really local so that it feels very safe", Worton said. The site, focuses on the towns of Rifle, Slit and New Castle, according to worton who started and monitors the site. On the site mothers can discuss specific issues about parenting and kids.
"It gives you a safe place to ask questions and get that motherly advice that you may not have in other social networks", Worton said.
