About Us

Homeschool C.A.R.E. Foundation (HCF) was founded by HomeLife Academy (HLA) in 2018 as a nonprofit 501(c)3. Both organizations work closely together to support, guide and encourage homeschooling students and families around the world. HCF is located in the HLA administrative offices in Jackson, Tennessee and is the charitable arm of HLA.

Our Purpose

Homeschool CARE Foundation was created to help homeschooling families through their journey. Encouragement and support to homeschooling parents can make the difference in their students’ success. We currently are building three program areas in order to CONNECT, COUNSEL and CONTRIBUTE back to homeschooling families across the nation.

CONNECT: There are parents that feel homeschooling is the only and best option for their student, but don’t know how, don’t have the foundation or philosophy that many long-time homeschoolers take for granted. We would like to CONNECT families together for mentoring and support.

COUNSEL: Today, there are students struggling with depression from bullying, anxiety, fear, grief.  We would like to offer COUNSEL, guidance, and encouragement to parents and students who need help knowing how to deal with these issues through solid, biblical professional counseling support.

CONTRIBUTE: There are families suffering from loss whether financial or physical or who may need extra support.  We want to CONTRIBUTE to these families in a way that can make a difference and we want to give other families the opportunity to CONTRIBUTE to them as well.
