Extension Homemakers is an education and service program to improve the quality of life for ourselves and our families.

Homemakers clubs are a terrific place to make new friends, learn new skills and experience unlimited personal growth!

As a Homemaker, you can:

  • Make: Every month we discuss cutting-edge issues in foods, health, relationships, consumer protection, crafts and technology. Homemakers love to learn new skills at monthly meetings and other Extension workshops and programs.
  • Belong: make new friends to explore and share community issues, family life, international and diversity awareness, environmental issues, and healthy homes.
  • Serve: Make a difference in our community by sharing knowledge and talents, honoring veterans, helping the homeless, assisting nursing home residentsand other projects. Volunteer hours by Homemakers make a big difference in our community!
