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 residents and other projects. Volunteer hours by Homemakers make a big difference in our community!
