Board meetings are held once annually and once every quarter along with a few special meetings to oversee the operation of the Co-op and to pray for WCHC families. WCHC Board members have homeschooled children enrolled in Co-op or are currently teaching at WCHC.
Nominees must have actively participated in WCHC for at least one Co-op session. Board vacancies are filled by unanimous approval of current Board members. If you’d like to let us know that you’d be interested in serving on the board, please email us!

My family joined the Co-Op fall of 2015 and have been blessed by this community of friends! I wanted to do my part to ensure the future of the Co-op, so when a board position became available Winter of 2015, I jumped at the opportunity. I homeschool my 6 children and understand that my family is my first priority. I’m thankful for the opportunity to serve on the board with my children at my side. It is important to me that my children see me serving others outside of the home and that they have the opportunity to do the same. I am honored to serve the Co-Op as the President. it brings me joy to work with the other board members and team leaders to cast vision, problem solve, curate community, connect those who have needs with others who are passionate in teaching, and seeing God’s hand in all of it! I am grateful for this Co-op and pray that I will serve them well.

I was born and raised (and met my husband) here in Washington State, so after 5 brief years in the military it was easy for us to choose where to plant our roots. We moved here in the winter of 2013 when we still had 1 child who was only 4 months old.I began to attend the local college where I received an Associates in Business and we had another bundle of joy in 2014. About this time is when we began to discuss schooling options for our children. We both knew that more than anything, we wanted our children to be raised in an environment that agreed with our worldview. After looking into different alternative schools, private schools, etc. we realized that the vision that we had for the lives of our children would be nigh unaffordable. Not to mention in the interim we would be paying for all our children to go to daycare while I worked. None of this sounded appealing to us so we made the (courageous!) decision to homeschool ourselves. Both of us attended public school, so although we knew this was something we wanted we had no idea where to start! Thankfully I discovered WCHC through my sister in law and immediately signed up my oldest. We were instantly welcomed into the community and I found a fellowship among these women that I hadn’t realized I needed. As of this coming Fall Session (2018), we have now been attending for 2 and a half years and couldn’t say enough about what a tremendous blessing it has been to our family. The community, the encouragement, the experience that these wonderful ladies have to offer is astounding and we are so grateful to be a part of it!

I’m an Oregon girl who moved here In 2014 when my husband wanted to come back to his roots to raise our family. I have four kiddos and we are coming up on our third year at WCHC. My husband and I agreed on homeschooling because we wanted our children to have the freedom to play more and worry less. Learning should be fun! This year will be my first year as a Board Member and I am so excited! I have been blessed with wonderful friendships and opportunities to glean from others at this co-op.
My personal hobbies include dancing, reading non-fiction, and having heart-to-heart conversations on my friends’ couches while eating copious amounts of sweets. As a family, we enjoy being out in nature and are looking forward to doing more road trips!
