Sometimes you just need to talk with someone who gets homeschooling and all that comes with it!

At HECOA, we provide support for home educators in a variety of ways. Of course there are our unique training opportunities, live webinars, and live presentations – as well as our resource areas.

Any question you have about home education, please feel free to contact us directly. The method that most home educators have preferred over the years is to simply email us at           seminars(at)hecoa(dot)com
That way, once we establish contact and help you assess your needs, we can put you in touch with a specific leader in your area. Or, if you just want to keep your questions and concerns private, we honor that too. We receive hundreds of emails each week. So please be patient with us, as we do give personal attention to each person.

For clarity on how long it takes to get a response – our office hours are generally:
Monday through Friday, 9am to 4pm, PST.
Sometimes, one of our advocates might be in touch on a weeknight or weekend, but we do not promise 24/7 service, as our organization is all volunteer and we all have families too.
