Homeschoolers Encouraging Learning and Providing Support, also known as HELPS, is a board-run home school support group whose goal is to provide educational encouragement and support for those families that home school their children.

These opportunities can include field trips, family assemblies, youth get-together, teen nights, Co-op, yearbook, holiday parties, standardized testing, and graduation ceremonies. As a group we strive to provide family friendly activities.

The majority of our members are Christians. We begin our meetings with prayer. We are not exclusive. All who home school are welcome!
