HSLDA MEMBERS READY TO HELP



Purcellville VA - In response to Hurricane Katrina thousands of Home School Legal Defense Association members have offered assistance to homeschool families that are in need. "It's heart-warming to see the response from our members," said Chuck Hurst, Membership Director for HSLDA. "The next step is to make contact with people who need our help," he added.

In partnership with the Home School Foundation, HSLDA has created a hurricane response website www.homeschoolfoundation.org/hurricane where people offering assistance can meet the needs of those seeking assistance.

HSLDA is also in contact with the various state homeschool organizations in the region who are in the best position to identify homeschool families who need help.

We are thankful that so many people are willing to offer aid and comfort during this difficult time.

Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) is a 22 year old, 80,000 member non-profit organization and the preeminent national association advocating the legal right of parents to homeschool their children.
