Kewaunee County Home & Community Education (HCE)

Association for Home and Community Education, Inc.

The Wisconsin Association for Home and Community Education, Inc. is a nonprofit educational organization comprised of member associations in 50 counties in Wisconsin.

The organization is unique in that the 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 UW Extension.  The UW-Extension faculty serve as liaisons to both the state and county HCE Associations.  Education programs are developed after careful study of statewide concerns.
