Q:

Do you have classes for my kids?

Rather than classes, HOME offers encouragement to homeschool parents and children through Parents’ Meetings, Field Trips, get-togethers and activities. 

Q:

I have only preschoolers.  Can I join HOME?

A:

What a great time to explore homeschooling!  Yes, we would love to have you join.

 

Q:

I’m not sure if HOME is the best fit for our family.  Are there events we can come to without being members?

Q:

My children are taking classes at a co-op, private school,  or public school but we are homeschooling.  Are we able to be part of HOME?

A:

Yes.

 

Q:

I’d like to meet other homeschool moms for support and encouragement

A:

This is at the very heart of HOME’s DNA.  No one knows how to encourage a homeschool mom like another homeschool mom does.  Look for this support at our Parents’ Meetings, which include fellowship time before and after, in our Connect Groups, Moms’ Tea and when we meet each other at our kids’ activities.

 

Q:

 What is your position on COVA and other Gov't based programs?

A:

We do not recommend or promote government interference with our children's education by using any of the government programs available. 

Q:

I want to find friendships for my children.

A:

We have activities designed to help kids connect with others.  They include Rollerskating, Swimming, Teens, HOME Boys, HOME Girls, HOME Little Kids, as well as Connect groups centered in your area of town.

 

Q:

Why do you charge dues?

 

A:

We want to offer excellence to our members and so we are willing to pay for a professional website, speakers for our Parents’ Meetings, Newsletter needs, paper goods and refreshments at our meetings, etc.  We know many families struggle with unemployment, or underemployment, and often offer scholarships in cases of financial difficulties.
