Local Contacts

Local Contacts

CHN Local Contacts are homeschooling families who serve as ambassadors to their local communities for California Homeschool Network.

Names and contact information of Local Contacts are published on an ongoing basis here and in the quarterly CHNews publication. We will be happy to answer your questions about homeschooling, refer you to local support groups or private/public ISPs, and keep you abreast of the local legal climate in your county. We also organize homeschool information events and we are available to provide you with information on local resources of value to homeschooling families.

If your county is not listed below, or if you are unable to reach your local contact, call the Homeschool Hotline toll free at *1(800)327-5339 for answers to your homeschooling questions.

Counties not listed are in need of a representative.

Please consider volunteering as a CHN Local Contact. For information on how to volunteer as a Local Contact in your area, contact CHN or call the homeschool hotline listed above.

*Paid for by California Homeschool Network Membership support.

If you or your ISP has set up anti-spam measures that prevent email from addresses that have not been approved from landing in your inbox, please remember to add the email address of the Local Contact that you email with your question.

No marketing solicitations, please.
