Which words come to mind when you contemplate 2021: “Hardship”? “Shortage”?

What about “hope,” “encouragement,” and “gratitude”?

Those last three may not seem to top the list during a global pandemic, but at HSLDA, we are hearing them a lot from the families we have had the privilege of serving this year.

Compassion Grants are among the primary ways HSLDA cares for homeschooling families in hard times. Families may be struggling through medical issues, relationship breakdowns, or financial difficulties. Their children may be overcoming special needs or recovering from PTSD due to bullying or abandonment.
