You will be eligible to volunteer for positions within HEART and may offer classes to the group if you are in agreement with our doctrinal statement. HEART does not endorse any person or group that is offering classes or activities. You are responsible for checking out those that are offering classes or activities to be sure they have the same ideals as you do. HEART is a Christian home school support group that allows anyone to join.
HEART Group Discounts
HEART members receive group discounts with both Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and Texas Home School Coalition (THSC). These are legal organizations whose members receive free legal assistance for home schooling issues.
HSLDA is a nation-wide organization that helps all of us to have a favorable home schooling experience. THSC is a Texas organization that benefits Texans. We highly recommend that you join one or both groups to help keep home schooling legal and free from government regulations. When you support one or both of these legal organizations, you are helping us keep our freedoms as well as helping those across the United States and around the world to gain the freedoms that we currently enjoy.
HSLDA offers our members a reduced yearly rate of $100 (standard $120.). When joining HSLDA, please check off the appropriate box for group membership. HEART’s group number is available in the member area of the website. More information can be found at www.hslda.com.
THSC’s normal yearly dues are $120.00. Our support group discount drops the price to $100. HEART’s group number is available in the member area of the website. More information can be found at www.thsc.org.
