A Blessing in Nebraska
The Home School Foundation (HSF) wishes to thank the Nebraska Christian Home Educators Association (NCHEA) which helped Kathryn Dillow, the Nebraska State HSF Ambassador, bless homeschoolers and the cause of homeschooling at the recent NCHEA conference. Approximately 400 attendees from across the state had the opportunity to hear about HSF and the Ambassador Program as they passed through the vendor hall, read the article in the conference brochure, or attended the HSF Ambassador presentation for homeschool support group leadership. One huge way NCHEA helped was in their donation of booth space for HSF.
At the HSF table, Ambassador Dillow heard about the struggles of homeschoolers in rural areas: a support group trying to make ends meet, a homeschool family uncertain about how to pay for next year’s school materials; a single mom looking for encouragement. Dillow was able to direct them to grant opportunities with the HSF that could help them meet their financial needs, and thus, lift their spirits.
“Many had never heard of the Home School Foundation, and some thought it was only for select groups such as widows or special needs children. Having the opportunity to speak with homeschool families helped clarify that the Foundation is here for all of us,” shared Ambassador Dillow. “I am very grateful to the NCHEA for creating this outreach opportunity through their gracious donations. It was a wonderful gift to the Nebraska homeschooling community.”
