Some homeschoolers need a helping hand. Join Mike Smith as he talks with his guest Rogers Hellman about homeschoolers helping homeschoolers, on today's Home School Heartbeat.
With us this week is Rogers Hellman, board member of the Home School Foundation. Thanks for joining us, Rogers.
Mike, it's my pleasure to be here.
Rogers, what is the Home School Foundation?
Fundamentally it's a charitable organization where we strive to do good; but in particular, we are committed to the homeschooling community. We help the homeschooling organizations, state and local organizations, support groups, by funding them. We help individual homeschoolers that are experiencing some tragedies or problems in their lives. In particular, we have a widows fund (that we help families who have lost a parent). Parents that have a special needs childthey incur extra expenses; we're there for them. We provide scholarships to Patrick Henry College. And finally, there's some things that we can do as an organization that individuals cannot; however, the flipside is true: people in the communities have responsibilities to those around them that are hurting.
Thank you, Rogers, for providing that vitally important information and for telling us about the Home School Foundationhow they're helping many in the homeschool community. And until next time, I'm Mike Smith.
