IAHE was a resource I used when I first started thinking about homeschooling. They have all the info on what is required by the law to homeschool in Indiana. They also have regional reps across the stat that you can contact for help or find local homeschool support. I have also enjoyed volunteering with IAHE. The volunteer team atmosphere is very uplifting and supportive.

I looked to IAHE from the very beginning of our homeschool journey over 7 years ago. Their encouragement and helpful material made me more confident in my ability to teach my children. I am grateful that we have such an organization in our state to help others on their homeschooling path!

IAHE has been a huge blessing to my family as well as those in my area. The articles, networking, referrals, and support have been invaluable in helping me to homeschool my own children. I appreciate the legislative updates and ideas on the website as well as print media delivered to my home. I appreciate the affordable membership and discounts I can take when a member. I appreciate how this organization is constantly looking at ways to serve as circumstances impact the ability to have larger conference venues.

IAHE has been a great encouragement to me since I began homeschooling. Their events have helped me build community, their Facebook pages are great places to ask questions, and their website is full useful information. Most of all, I appreciate the work they do to protect our homeschool freedoms.

When we moved to Indiana in 1987, I was a young homeschooling mom with three kids. Finding the IAHE was like a finding a friend, finding help, and finding encouragement all in one! They had a magazine that was full of information and helpful ideas. I began going to their conventions in Indianapolis and it was truly the highlight of my year! The workshops helped me on my way, the vendor hall enabled me to talk with other homeschooling parents and look at curriculum before I bought it, and there was so much encouragement from the only state organization for homeschoolers. They help us understand the state law, and they also work diligently to keep our law as free as it is. They provide a network of regional representatives across the state to help local families. Indiana is a great state to homeschool in, and I credit the IAHE for that!

When we moved to Indiana in 1987, I was a young mom and a new homeschooler. One of the first things I found to help and encourage me was the IAHE state homeschool convention. With workshops, a curriculum fair, and friendly faces, I was able to find the help I needed to understand Indiana homeschool laws, and plan the coming year. As it turned out, I homeschooled 28 years in Indiana, and only missed about 2 state conventions all those years. I also began receiving their free magazine, another way my family was guided and supported. They gave me so many ideas and help through the years that I eventually became a volunteer to help others the way I was helped.

IAHE has been instrumental in defending our homeschooling rights in Indiana, and in providing up to date information in confusing areas, as well as providing pertinent aids for homeschooling regardless of the family set up. I grew up as the child of IAHE volunteers, and have benefited in so many ways as an adult now homeschooling my own children - I love serving with IAHE!

IAHE has been a great encouragement to me on my homeschool journey! When I first started, they provided encouragement and resources to help me gain confidence and be successful. NOw as I continue on the adventure, I continue to feel supported and equipped. My needs with homeschooling high school are different than when I navigated the younger years, but I can always find the information I am looking for when I turn to them. I recommend them to all of my homeschooling friends.

The IAHE _is_ Indiana's boots-on-the-ground homeschool org. They actively and readily support homeschoolers, they maintain relationships with our government leaders, and they actively defend parental and homeschooling rights.

The IAHE volunteers are always quick to listen to my needs both as a homeschooling parent and as a mom wanting to serve the greater homeschool community. They have so many resources to suggest and offer helpful homeschooling tips and tools.

I'm so grateful for the work they do!

I got involved with the IAHE after attending my first IAHE convention several years ago. They put families first, not only in serving families, but also making sure anyone who volunteers is taking care of their own families first. I appreciate that I am able to decide how much of my time and energy I can give every week to the organization based on what my family needs, too. The IAHE has a high standard of providing clear and accurate information in a format everyone can understand. Their website is one of the most well done websites I have ever come across in my many years of homeschooling and reading homeschool blogs. The depth of knowledge of all their volunteers from the decades of experiences of this long standing organization is not to be missed. If one person doesn't know an answer, someone else usually does. Although I came to this organization already having 10 plus years under my belt as a homeschool mom and being a homeschool grad myself, I have learned even a ton more under the leadership or mentorship of the IAHE and the community it has created. The IAHE is the premiere homeschooling organization in the state of Indiana and is the only one who is willing to go head to toe with the politicians at the state house to continue to fight, as it always has, for homeschool freedoms. I am/was very impressed by this organization, and therefore, it was an easy decision to jump on board as a volunteer.

I found IAHE when we recently moved to Indiana and started homeschooling. Their volunteers are incredibly knowledgeable and thorough when they offer guidance.

They not only provided guidance on the start up process, but ongoing support as well. With all IAHE memberships, you can find local support through their reps and directories of co-ops and support groups.

The IAHE helped my homeschooling journey by providing networking for us to find support with curriculum choices and finding friends via local groups. I later realized the IAHE was also helping my family by protecting my own freedom to home educate my children as I saw fit. I have been able to graduate all four of my children from home education with no fear of government interference. The IAHE has my support forever! Thank you, IAHE volunteers!

When I began my homeschooling journey close to 20 years ago, IAHE was my lifeline! They met me where I was, answered my many questions and were a wonderful encouragement. Over the years, as I became more comfortable with homeschooling, my needs changed - but IAHE remained by my side and continued to encourage me, provide a wealth of resources, and has kept me informed on what is happening in our homeschooling community/state. I can't speak highly enough of this incredible ministry other than to say I don't think I would have stuck with homeschooling had it not been for their amazing support!
