Making Homeschooling Possible

Many are aware of what HSLDA does for the legal aspect of homeschooling. Established over thirty years ago, HSLDA provides legal protection and representation to member families who are challenged by school authorities, ensuring that parents' rights to direct the education of their children are preserved.

HSLDA Compassion, aptly named, is the compassionate side of HSLDA. Since 1994, Compassion has provided tangible hope to struggling families to help them homeschool through hard times.

Are you or a homeschooling family you know facing a hardship with your homeschooling?

If you know of any homeschooling family in the area that could use some help, please feel free to contact me (email is my first-choice method of contact) or tell them about HSLDA Compassion. I will be more than happy to speak with anyone. Sometimes a family doesn't need monetary help, though. Sometimes they just need some prayer and support. We are here for this, too.
