Harrisburg Families United's mission is to inform, inspire, and empower parents to discover the K-12 education options available for their children, while generating widespread public awareness of the importance of opportunity in K-12 education. We help families discover the traditional public, public charter, public magnet, private, online, and home education options available for their children to experience learning environments where they can thrive, succeed, and enjoy school. We support schools and homeschool organizations in planning community events and activities of educational significance for K-12 education, partner with nonprofit organizations to organize school fairs and awareness events, and amplify online enthusiasm for school choice among Harrisburg residents and surrounding communities.
Our goals are to help families understand Pennsylvania school choice options. Help families with enrollment to schools that accept school choice funding. Mobilize parents voice and actions in their children's education. Help families with the barriers they face that keep them less involved with their children's education. To continue to push Pennsylvania for more funding and to keep the program available. To visit and collaborate with schools that accept school choice options. Encourage other schools and school districts to accept children with school choice funding. To correct the misinformation about school choice to the public.
