Please Note: This service is for individuals who are either currently homeschooling or about to start homeschooling.
Use the form below to obtain a referral to local support groups near you. NICHE maintains a list of over 120 support group contacts throughout Iowa. Each group is autonomous and NICHE makes no attempt to regulate how each group functions. We do not provide referrals to support groups designated as secular in focus, and we do not refer to public school Home School Assistance Programs (HSAP).
If you are requesting a referral to a Support Group Contact in your area, we ask that you confirm the following:
You are an individual who is either currently homeschooling or abouttobegin homeschooling.
You are requesting the referral for the sole purpose of personally participating in the group.
You will contact the local group via email, if available, or by phone during the evening hours.
You will remember that the contact family is homeschooling also and you will be respectful of their time and service.
You are not requesting information for the purposes of selling a product/service or on behalf of an organization or political candidate.
You will not reveal the name(s) and contact information from this support group referral to anyone seeking to sell/promote products/services/organizations/candidates to home educators.
You will let us know immediately if the contact information is no longer valid.
Bysubmitting your request for a support group contact you agree to the criteria listed above.
In addition, as our mission statement says, we are dedicated to providing Christ-centered resources for Iowa home educators. We are convinced that, in order to be ultimately and eternally successful, home education efforts must be built upon the perfect foundation: Jesus Christ. Although NICHE cannot certify that each and every local support group on our list is Christ-centered, we continue to provide referrals. We urge you to take the family-based responsibility to prayerfully investigate and consider potential support groups – not only as sources of organized activities and services, but also as powerful instruments of influence.
After completing the form below, you will be sent information about support groups in the area corresponding to the address you supply. Complete all the form fields to receive a response.
