Homeschooling can be overwhelming sometimes, and it's nice to know there is some help around when you need it.  We hope that the links below will provide you with some of that support.



What is HSLDA?

"Home School Legal Defense Association is a nonprofit advocacy organization established to defend and advance the constitutional right of parents to direct the education of their children and to protect family freedoms. Through annual memberships, HSLDA is tens of thousands of families united in service together, providing a strong voice when and where needed." 
(as stated on the HSLDA Website)
