The HomeSchool Association of California is a nonprofit volunteer-run homeschool organization that:
Honors the diversity of homeschoolers

Monitors and influences legislation
Offers opportunities for families to get together

Empowers families to make choices that respect the rights, needs, and aspirations of their children
The HomeSchool Association of California (HSC) is an intentionally inclusive organization, welcoming homeschoolers of all races and ethnicities, religions, sexual orientation, gender identities, and abilities.
Harassment or bullying will not be tolerated by HSC. The HSC Board of Directors is committed to providing a safe and civil environment in which all members of the HSC community, including adults, teens, and children, are welcomed with dignity and respect.
The HSC Website contains extensive information about homeschooling for those just considering or getting started and those who are experienced homeschoolers as well as for professionals who may have an interest in homeschooling. The website also provides in-depth legal information prepared by HSC's homeschooling parent/attorneys.
HSC County Contacts can be reached in most California counties. These are HSC members (experienced homeschoolers) who volunteer to answer questions from homeschoolers or prospective homeschoolers in their area. They can give you advice and information about local support groups and activities as well as general moral support.
The HSC Adventures in Homeschooling Conference provides a place for the entire homeschooling family to gather together to hear interesting and provocative speakers, learn new crafts or skills, see resource displays, and most of all, meet, share ideas and experience just plain fun.
