At the CHC, we enjoy many member benefits, but most importantly are the type of benefits that are intangible. You know them… for instance, a valuable friendship, or a place to belong. We make the community we are in. This is why we have a free Curriculum Swap for items that members are no longer using that they would like to pass on, and why we are passionate about providing a place for a frazzled mom to stop in & rest in the midst of a crazy day & get a tasty cup of coffee & a listening ear. By nature, homeschoolers like to support other homeschoolers, which provides a great support system for our small business entrepreneurs (eClub). There are so many ‘benefits’ to being part of a community that maybe don’t look like much on paper, but sometimes they make all the difference in someone continuing to homeschool. These are our favorite ‘benefits’. In addition, we are in the process of evolving to enrich our members lives & experience even more, so please, we welcome feedback about how we can do just that.
We welcome you,
