Welcome to HEM’s Support Groups Pages!
Homeschool support groups and the individuals who build networks between homeschooling families are the glue which holds the homeschooling community together. Through their newsletters, conferences, websites, discussion lists, weblogs and more, homeschool support groups and active individuals keep the lines of communication open, while offering information, resources, news and perspectives on homeschooling.
HEM has long recognized the valuable contributions of homeschool support groups and active individuals, and we hope these resources will help you locate, join, and volunteer to help your local support group or networking individual.
Access your state listing to the right to find contact information for state and local homeschool support groups. We also maintain a National listing of nation-wide homeschooling organizations and an International list of groups and organizations.
