At 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 29, 2013, in what has been called a “brutal and vicious act,” a team of 20 social workers, police officers, and special agents stormed a homeschooling family’s residence near Darmstadt, Germany, forcibly removing all four of the family’s children (ages 7-14).

Hope for Colorado Homeschool Families Harmed by Wildfires

Hundreds of homes in Colorado have been scorched by wildfires last week with still more in the path of these devastating flames. Already the Home School Foundation, HSLDA's charitable arm, has been notified of several homeschool families who have lost their home and school materials as a result of the fires.

HSF can help. But only through your support.

Because of generous donations to HSF’s Compassion Emergency Response, a program to help homeschool families impacted by a natural disaster, we can provide some relief to these families by replacing textbooks, teaching materials, and basic school supplies.
