CHEC’s ministry has a special fund designated for widowed and single mothers who homeschool in Colorado, called the Casterline Widows Fund.
The story behind the Casterline Fund
Larry and Nancy Casterline, volunteers with CHEC for many years, were serving on the CHEC conference committee in 2001 when Larry passed away in his sleep the night before the conference. Shortly after Larry’s death, Nancy started the Casterline Widows Fund to help other moms who found themselves in similar situations.
Today: Helping Single Moms
The fund helps support widows and single moms who desire to homeschool but may not have the means for practical items. These moms can receive support including:
- Scholarships for CHEC events (contact us to request) and the Rocky Mountain Homeschool Conference (use this form to request)
- Membership in the CHEC Independent School (mark the box on the enrollment application to request)
- Funds to cover curriculum, up to $100/child or $200/max per family (click here to request curriculum funds)
- Free gift of a special banquet, the Casterline Banquet, hosted every fall just to bless single moms (click here to learn more and register)
You can help by donating to the fund and by sharing these opportunities for benefits with the single moms you know.
