- Wright Independent Learning Cooperative (WILC)
Inclusive group from Dayton mostly consisting of families practicing a pretty relaxed form of homeschooling, of various religions. We get together almost every week - sometimes just informally at the park, other times for a field trip or specific program. Participation is up to each family. We aren't providing a group FOR homeschoolers. We're enjoying a group WITH other homeschoolers. If somebody wants the group to do something, like a field trip or a get-together, it's up to her or her family to see that it happens. We aren't providing a service to group members, so everybody is expected to participate in both leadership and participation.

- Whitewater Inclusive Homeschool Network (WIHN)
An inclusive homeschooling network whose purpose is to help homeschooling families in Dearborn (IN), Franklin (IN), and western Hamilton (OH) Counties and surrounding areas connect with and support each other in the task of educating our children at home. This network is open to families of any race, religion, and nationality, and actively welcomes diversity among its members. This is not primarily a parent support group but a means for families to find and cultivate relationships with others around common interests. This network will have particular appeal to families for whom finding others with whom to explore shared interests is integral to their approach to homeschooling, although families of all approaches to homeschooling are welcome. WIHN has been shaped by HSN; the distance we live from the heart of HSN activities prompted the formation of WIHN. We welcome participation from HSN members in WIHN activities. If you would like more information about either activities or membership, contact:
Anna Korn (513) 202-1413
Robyn Zitnick (765) 647-2471
