Protect your family and your freedom to homeschool!

If your child needed emergency brain surgery, which doctor would you want for his operation – an orthopedic surgeon or a neurosurgeon? If you were one of the families to be contacted or prosecuted by your state or its public school system, what kind of attorney would you call for help? Would you call a civil lawyer or the tried-and-true Christian attorney organization protecting private homeschoolers in the U.S. since 1983?

The Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) is the premier nonprofit advocacy organization established solely to defend and advance the constitutional right of parents to direct the education of their children and to protect family freedoms. HSLDA advocates on the legal front on behalf of their members in matters including conflicts with state or local officials over private homeschooling.

God has blessed HSLDA with huge successes in California and across the nation. No other organization comes close to providing the specialized and successful help for homeschoolers provided by HSLDA.
  • HSLDA is the only organization that has 35 years of experience, specialized legal research, courtroom hearings, connections, and resources focusing primarily on protecting homeschool freedoms and parental rights.
  • HSLDA is the only organization that has developed the specific area of expertise in private home education and associated parental rights during the last quarter of a century through focused, hands-on experience.
  • HSLDA provides immediate access to full-time, specialized HSLDA attorneys, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for every member.
  • HSLDA has over 35 years of solid working relationships with California’s diverse statewide private homeschool community.
Total legal inquiries to HSLDA by California members in 2019:

19 public school contacts
46 social service contacts
46 discrimination
1,391 general legal questions

Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) is the only legal defense association we can recommend to homeschooling parents desiring to protect their families and freedoms in homeschooling. We recommend them very highly.

We strongly encourage every private homeschool family to join HSLDA and keep their membership current. It costs just $130 per year.

Family Protection Ministries exists to defend the freedom of parents to train, educate, and care for their children privately, without governmental interference.

FPM has been working to detect, analyze, monitor, and intervene in all legislation affecting the legality of private home education in California since 1986, with a 100% success rate.

Family Protection Ministries is the only full-time organization working in the state capitol monitoring all legislative and administrative actions and advocating in behalf of private home educators and parents.

When you support FPM, you help us fight against bills in the California State Capitol that threaten our current homeschool freedoms. FPM has been working successfully to defend homeschool freedoms in California for 34 years against legislative proposals such as putting homeschooling parents in jail, requiring home inspections for all homeschool families, government defined curriculum standards, teacher credentials, and other requirements for homeschoolers.

Family Protection Ministries works closely with HSLDA on legal research for California legislation, and relies heavily on the legal expertise of HSLDA attorneys.

The ongoing battle to protect private homeschool freedoms has stretched our already-tight funding very thin. Please consider donating financially on a regular basis. Without your support, we would not be able to advocate on your behalf on bills relating to homeschooling.
