GHF Learners
Address: 78681
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

GHF Families are pioneers in homeschooling. Our community started out of the need to create learning environments for our children to thrive. Here we are fifteen years later and we have developed an experienced community that now spans multiple generations. The heart of GHF is the steady influx of new families seeking help. Gifted and 2E families have built an infrastructure for ourselves to be in charge of our lives, to develop our own sense of agency.

GHF’s community is the result of volunteer families collectively working together to develop family agency. Most families were and are reluctant to make these changes. We come together and share resources, seek and receive information, and build the next generation of veteran families that are here to support the newcomers.

Our new generation of families is now learning that educating our children is about choosing from a wide palette of options that start with families taking control. It doesn’t have to mean pulling children totally out of school anymore either unless that is what you want to do. It’s about your choices.
