About Us

Greater Milwaukee Catholic Home Educators (GMCHE) was founded in 1991 by just a few families.  We now have over 170 member families all across southeastern Wisconsin.

We began holding vendor fairs in the late 1990s at St. Mary Help of Christians in West Allis.  In 2004, we had our first conference with speakers as well as vendors, and in 2005, we moved to the Cousins Center. Since then, we've held a conference every other year at the Tommy Thompson Youth Center in West Allis.  After the 2011 conference, we decided to make this an annual event. We plan to hold a conference every year, always toward the end of April (depending on when Easter falls).

In 2007, GMCHE Conferences, Inc., was formed as a non-profit, 501(c)3 corporation, registered in Wisconsin.
