The Children of Single Parents Fund helps single-parent families in which the children, through no fault of their own, experience financial hardships that threaten their homeschool.
Created to help Christian single parents in hard circumstances be able to raise their children in the Lord by continuing to homeschool them, the Children of Single Parent fund gives grants based on a highly selective review process, financial need, and the availability of funds.
Grants must be used primarily for curriculum and materials and are not intended to provide ongoing household income assistance.

In 2005, a concerned father approached the Home School Foundation about his burden to assist homeschooling single parents. His desire was to minister to single parents who were committed to the Lord, to their children, and to homeschooling. Through his vision and vast generosity, the Children of Single Parents Fund was born.
When her husband left their family, Laura Stewart* had been homeschooling for more than a decade—first her foster daughter, then her sons. Teaching her children at home was more than a preference to Laura. It was part of her life. But this commitment was tested when her now ex-husband chose not to contribute to any schooling costs.
