Vol. 74, Prg. 1–5

When a major financial emergency comes up, some families wonder if they can afford to continue homeschooling. Assistance from the Home School Foundation, HSLDA’s charitable arm, can make all the difference. Through the Foundation’s seven funds, families encountering medical emergencies can purchase curriculum, special needs children can obtain therapy and equipment, and widows and orphans can be provided for.
