Welcome to S.H.A.R.E.!


Thank you for checking out our website!  

S.H.A.R.E. (St. Louis Homeschooling Activities, Resources and Encouragement) is an  independent support group founded and operated  by volunteer parents who home educate their  children in the Greater St. Louis Area. Families from  all over the St. Louis region and nearby Illinois  counties are members of SHARE, although we are  based in the South City, South County and Mid County areas.

We are a diverse group of homeschoolers with a wide variety of learning and teaching styles. Some families are large, others are small; some are homeschooling veterans of twenty years, many are just beginning.

The majority of members are Christians but people of all faiths are welcome in S.H.A.R.E.  We are united by our choice to homeschool our children and give them the best possible educational experience AND by our desire to protect homeschooling rights in Missouri and elsewhere. 

Our main goal is to inform, equip and encourage families in their homeschooling journey!



Our Homelink Learning Center

HOMELINK is a homeschool learning center that is sponsored by SHARE.  You do not have to attend Homelink classes to be a SHARE member!  Homelink is an activity just like a field trip or a dance.  All SHARE activities are open to all SHARE members, regardless of what learning center they may attend or not attend.laugh

We are collecting CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES AGAIN!

Please help us reach 100 shoe boxes this year!!!

Click on the image for details on how can help make a child very happy!
AGAIN THIS YEAR!
*I also have purchased official Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes that you may pick up at the Homelink (in basement) any Tuesday or Thursday for FREE! I only ask that if you take one, you bring it back full. Actually, we have new FREE boxes this year. They are larger and thicker. We still have plenty of the smaller ones too!

*I’ll also have lots of extra box labels too for those who do not do online tracking. A $9 donation per shoebox gift is critical to provide for shipping and other ministry expenses.

*Be sure to check out this resource page…I love the Let’s Be Friends page to insert in the box: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/childrens-ministry-resources/

*Not doing online tracking and need a label? I have them at Homelink or here is a link:
http://static.samaritanspurse.org.s3.amazonaws.com/occ/images/2017-how-to-pack/occ-basic-labels.pdf

* No toothpaste or candy--These items are no longer allowed in shoeboxes due to customs regulations.

IMPORTANT!!! If you can't come to the skating party and have made a shoebox, you can bring it to Homelink any Tuesday or Thursday before November 18 OR drop it by Cathy's house (3675 Montana 63116) OR call Cathy and she will come get it! (314-769-7965).
