Home & Community Education (HCE)

The Wisconsin Association for Home and Community Education, Inc., is a non-profit educational and charitable organization comprised of member associations in 59 counties in Wisconsin.  The organization is unique in that members extend the information they receive from the University faculty and other reliable sources to the membership and community. Program planning and leadership training are provided by a collaborative effort of WAHCE, Inc. and the UW-Extension Family Living Program.

The UW-Extension faculty serve as advisors to both the state and county HCE Associations. Education programs are developed after careful study of statewide concerns.

Our Goals Are:

  • To provide continuing education for members and others on issues that will strengthen families and communities.
  • To develop and improve leadership skills of members.
  • To build coalitions with other organizations and agencies having similar objectives and concerns as WAHCE, Inc.
  • To promote friendships and understanding with all people of the world.
