Extension Center for Family Development

 

Extension educators work with families in their communities, workplaces and homes, as well as with the community-based family professionals who serve them. Our research-based educational offerings address real issues for families, particularly underserved populations, and help them to make informed decisions for better health and well-being. Extension education helps families:

• improve parent and caregiver skills

• maintain healthier lifestyles

• better manage financial resources

• find safe and affordable housing

• survive and thrive through life transitions

• participate more fully as contributing members of their communities
