About CHEF of Alabama
CHEF of Alabama was founded in 1988 as a statewide organization to provide a connection among homeschoolers, which was especially needed in the early days of homeschooling when curriculum choices were few, legal battles were manifold, and communication was done by either snail mail or phone trees. To further meet the needs of Alabama's homeschooling pioneers, the annual state convention was established. Curriculum providers offer invaluable assistance, speakers give encouragement, inspiration and training, while attendees walk away refreshed and ready to tackle another year of homeschooling.
In these 28 years of dedicated service, the number of lives touched by the work of CHEF has been immeasurable. As we celebrate our 28th anniversary in 2016, we do so with the same passion and dedication to the state's homeschooling families as we have the previous 27. To God be the glory!
Join with us as we work together to impact lives for eternity.
