The Harrisburg Area Homeschoolers Association (HAHA) is an organization that exists for the purpose of encouraging, supporting, and informing parents who have made the choice to educate their child at home.
HAHA is an all-volunteer organization comprised of parents who educate their children at home using various methods including traditional homeschooling, unschooling, and cyber charter schools. HAHA will not withhold membership to any individual regardless of educating style, race, or religious background.
HAHA has been in existence since 1987 and continues to be a source of support to over 300 families in a five-county area surrounding Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Twenty years ago, this organization was founded on Christian principles. The leadership team of today pays honor to those exact principles while at the same time, providing an atmosphere of acceptance to those of differing religious convictions.
HAHA membership affords you the opportunity to be involved with our group in various ways. Some choose to participate in socialization activities and some do not have the time or a family structure that makes that possible. A HAHA membership is still beneficial even if you decide not to participate in social activities. There are over 17+ benefits to a HAHA membership. Visit the link entitled "Benefits of Membership" to review those benefits. We have attempted to ensure that there are activities for students of all ages. Some of our members are involved in almost every program that is available. Others choose to just take advantage of the e-mail loop or discount card. It really is up to you. We do ask that you consider attempting to make at least one parental support meeting a year. It is worth the sacrifice of making the time to come. We think you'll be glad that you did!
Please know that at the heart of all we do is a desire to bring encouragement and support to you and your children. Every activity, parent's meeting, service project, and workshop has been carefully planned with the hopes of equipping you with all you need to not only survive--but to thrive on your homeschooling journey!
