H.E.L.P.--our acronym says it all! We're here to "help" homeschooling parents in many ways. We especially provide support and encouragement through monthly meetings for parents with care groups and workshops. There is an extensive Resource Library with curriculum, readers, dvd's/videos, games, and science equipment for loan. We organize weekly classes for Pre-K through 12th and host a number of Electives. Member parents coordinate family-friendly outings, Christmas and Talent Shows as well as Field Trips. Activities begin in September and run through May, ending with a highly personalized Graduation.
We are associated with NYS LEAH* and are a ministry of Elim Gospel Church.
Membership requires payment of a yearly fee and volunteer time. Classes costs are separate.
*Loving Education At Home, Inc. is an organization of like-minded Christian home educators in New York State, dedicated to observing the biblical commands of Deuteronomy 6:4-9 , Proverbs 22:6 and Ephesians 6:4. LEAH began in 1983 with five Christian families seeking support and fellowship. It grew into a statewide not-for-profit ministry providing support through a network of local chapters.
