We are here to help you.

Our mission is to promote and support the benefits of parent-directed education.

For Individuals: Is homeschooling the right decision for your child? Are you ready to take on the challenges of teaching at home? FEAST is here to help! Attend one of our Home School Orientations and learn the details! We can help you jump start your homeschool.

For Support Groups and Coops: Would you like your group information more available to homeschoolers? Do you need a location to host a planning meeting? Would love to pamper your group volunteers with a nice meal or ceremony? Are you interested in training/workshops on certain topics?

FEAST is here to serve YOU! We get calls every day from families all across South Texas wanting information about support groups that are near them and/or meet specific needs they have. We want to put updated information on our website to help direct families toward your group.

FEAST is not trying to take the place of the local support group, nor are we in competition with you. We know that God has provided our region with so many different “flavors” of co-ops and support groups because homeschoolers are a diverse group of people.

Did you know that the primary purpose for FEAST is to serve, honor and glorify God, by taking appropriate steps to unify and focus the homeschoolers and homeschool support groups in the South Texas Region? In an effort to make this purpose more known in the community, we need to hear from you! We want to know how we can serve you. You know your group and their needs. As you inform us, we can better assist you, leaders; then all homeschoolers are being more efficiently served.

HOW CAN YOU AID US IN HELPING YOU? THESE THREE SIMPLE WAYS:

  1. Check our website and see if your information is listed and is current. If you need to be added to the list or have information updated, send an email to community@homeschoolfeast.com.
