CHALC provides support to homeschooling groups and families in Lancaster County and neighboring communities. We provide the primary means of communication in Lancaster County for homeschooling activities through the monthly newsletter, the CHALC Scrawls.

We offer many valuable services to our members, including liability insurance, a directory of evaluators, HSLDA membership discount, and the Scrawls newsletter.

CHALC's Vision Statement

As a service of organization, CHALC seeks to provide a vehicle to help advance the interests of home educators and the homeschooled as well. CHALC desires to reflect and represent these interests from a coalition format of related home school support groups. We are a representative association with an elected governing board where each board member serves a three year term.

CHALC desires to offer: resource information for beginning home educators; support through relationship building among home educators and the homeschooled; a working network to promote and facilitate combined activities, seminars, and information dissemination.

We hope CHALC, as a united fellowship of families, will also help in making a positive, life giving impact in the community where we live.
