Homeschool Support Groups
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.
Use of this Support Group Referral Form is limited to individuals who are:
- either currently homeschooling or about to begin homeschooling.
- requesting the referral solely to participate in the group. willing to respect the support group contact person’s privacy and time.
- not requesting or sharing referral information for the purposes of selling a product/service or on behalf of an organization or political candidate.
- willing to notify us if the contact information we provide is no longer valid.
Register your existing support group with NICHE to access the many support group resources that NICHE offers!
The NICHE Support Group List is confidential, and we release your group's contact information only to inquirers who individually request information about a support group in your area.
If your group's leadership has changed, please use this form to inform us of those changes.
All form fields must be completed for you to receive information and for the update to be successful.
Do you live in an area in which you’re not aware of any existing homeschool support groups?
Have you requested a local support group referral and been notified that NICHE is not aware of any groups in your area?
Why not try to start a local homeschool support group? We’d be happy to help!
Please start by contacting the Homeschool Iowa Regional Representative in your area.
G Suite for Education (GSfE) is now available for free to homeschool co-ops. Co-ops may gain access to the program by receiving a code from their state’s homeschool association, NICHE (Homeschool Iowa).
To be eligible, co-ops must meet the eligibility criteria for the program with Google, HSLDA, and NICHE. Co-ops must be nonprofit organizations in Iowa, have website addresses, and provide services to students for two or fewer days a week.
NICHE (Homeschool Iowa) is a strong advocate for the privacy rights of homeschool families. We believe that families should do their own research on the privacy standards of any program before sharing their child’s information online. It is important that co-op leaders remember that as with all free programs, the FREE offer can cease to exist at any time.
You can read Google’s Privacy and Security policy on their website.
Do you have questions about the privacy of your student’s data in G Suite? Contact HSLDA.
Where there is no guidance, a people falls,
but in an abundance of counselors
there is safety.
