Family Health and Wellness

One of CCE’s oldest initiatives, Family Health and Wellness has evolved from a homemaker-focused program to serve the changing needs of families, consumers and homeowners. Programs today provide information on diabetes education, nutrition, developing healthy lifestyles, and raising responsible children.

FHW educators collaborate with other county agencies and community-based organizations to support families, especially limited-resources families with young children. Development opportunities are also offered for family support professionals who work to strengthen families.
