Family & Consumer Sciences

FCS Extension programs aim to improve the quality of individual and family life through education, research, and outreach.

What is Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS)?

FCS stands for Family and Consumer Sciences Extension. FCS programming focus on building assets of individuals and families to address problems faced across the lifespan. Family and Consumer Sciences Extension emphasizes well-being with a focus on human development, parenting, resource management, nutrition, health and leadership development.

At the community level, FCS Extension prepares individuals for community and economic development and activity. Professionals in Family and Consumer Sciences Extension provide the tools to help individuals and families to develop resources for strengthening families and building community for an ever changing society.

Boyd County Extension works many great organizations. One statewide entity is the Kentucky Extension Homemakers Association (KEHA).We are very fortunate to have 5 clubs in Boyd County, as well as several Junior Homemaker Clubs at local schools. Any activity that Family and Consumer Sciences or the KEHA offers is open to the public, please be aware that some have fees associated with them in order to cover cost. The KEHA is a club that accepts dues and if you are interested in starting a new club or joining an existing club, please contact the Extension Office for more information at (606)739-5184.
