If you know any single mothers homeschooling their children, you know the journey is often a lonely and difficult one.
Like you, we share a burden for these brave moms. That’s why CHEC’s ministry has a special fund for widowed and single homeschooling mothers, 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.
