The Indiana Foundation for Home Schooling has a long range goal to develop a home education model in low-income neighborhoods in Indianapolis (which may include minorities) that will demonstrate the effectiveness of home schooling in raising the academic performance of students and provide the quality educational foundation necessary for these students to access higher education.However, we do not have grant funds or volunteers to support this project at this time, but are hopeful we will in the future. If you would be interested in volunteering to be involved in this effort, please see the Volunteer page.
