Extension Homemaker Units

We are your friends and neighbors who have joined together to invest in building a better tomorrow for our families and our communities.  Extension Homemakers is for everyone.  Most members meet in groups know as Extension Homemaker Units (EHU). These clubs are organized around convenient meeting times - evenings, lunchtime, days - whatever is best for the members of the group. 

 

Extension Homemaker Units activities focus on four things: 

 

Learning, Leading, Serving, and Supporting

 

Learning:

The opportunity to learn more about issues that concern today's families.  
Monthly lessons help members explore these issues.  We learn skills and receive up-to-date information in nutrition and health, financial management, environmental stewardship, youth development, personal and family living, and global and international concerns.

 

Leading:

Offers members the opportunity to develop leadership skills.  Leadership training workshops give you the tools you need to be an effective leader.  Serving on a committee or holding an office at the club or county level develops self-confidence.  Through the organization, you gain skills in setting goals, developing a plan of action, and working with others.  Homemakers all across the area put these skills to use by implementing projects that address local needs such as child safety, recycling, and health services.

 

Serving:

Extension Homemakers are great community volunteers.  Through local clubs or county projects, members volunteer their time and give money to help our community. 

 

Supporting:

Joining Extension Homemakers gives you an instant support group.  As you meet together at club meetings or work on projects, you will develop important friendships.  The fellowship with other members will lift your spirits and provide laughter or comfort when needed.
