ABOUT US                                

Homeschoolers Hearts and Hugs began in September 2001 as a Homeschool Community Volunteer Program based in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

The Homeschoolers Hearts and Hugs name reflects more than our goal of simply providing learning opportunities for homeschooling students. Hearts and Hugs symbolizes our emphasis on character building opportunities that make a difference in the lives of others while increasing public awareness of the advantages of home education.

We participate in the Silver Lining Program, (where we won the 2011 DADS Vision Award in the area of Wellness for our service to nursing homes & assisted living centers!) hold food, coat, blanket and toy drives, coordinate fundraisers and donation drives for needy community agencies and provide volunteer services. Our group is also a certifying organization for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award program.

We also offer assistance to families who have suffered a disaster such as a house fire, major illness, loss of employment, etc.

Since our beginning in 2001, we have expanded beyond these volunteer projects to coordinate a variety of educational field trips and social activities as well as reading and other incentive programs. We also provide mentoring services to new homeschoolers and those considering alternative education for their children.
