Why Research-based?

 Our mission is to learn what barriers families experience when educating their children at home, test solutions that break down those barriers and learn what choices families make in order to sustainably and successfully homeschool. Family voice and agency is central to how we design our programming and services. This information helps us and our partners to provide the support that is most relevant and beneficial to our families.
