-> Have you ever yelled into the wind, only to hear the sound of your
voice blown back at you?

It's hard to be heard in the midst of a storm. Trying to influence
federal legislation is much like yelling to be heard while
standing in a fierce wind. Yet when 80,000 voices join together,
they become a powerful force that cannot be drowned out.
Join HSLDA to be heard above the tempests that threaten homeschool
freedoms.

5. Homeschool Grants for Children of Single Parents

The Home School Foundation http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=15017 ,
the charitable arm of HSLDA, is having open enrollment in July for its
Children of Single Parents Fund. This fund assists children of single
parents who, through no fault of their own, experience financial
hardship during their homeschooling years. It is designed to assist
Christian single parents in extreme circumstances who are training
their children in the Lord. Children of Single Parent grants are based
on a highly selective review process, financial need, and the
availability of funds.
