Home and Family Resources
Families need practical, trustworthy information, skills, and assets to improve their quality of life and contribute to their communities. With an understanding that personal, family, and community well-being is dependent upon many kinds of knowledge and skills which are intertwined and inseparable, K-State Research and Extension Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Agents provide a broad base of expertise to help solve complicated problems by teaching essential living skills including finances, aging well, caring for your home and clothes, strengthening family relationships and raising your children. Our agents can help you navigate Medicare and Market Place Insurance, too.
Through our Family and Consumer Sciences program, K-State Research and Extension can provide information for life relating to home and family. The programs, classes, publications, newsletters, columns, and much more, allow our agents to provide you Knowledge for Life.
To help Kansans become as prepared as possible for emergencies, K-State Research and Extension is offering the Prepare Kansas annual preparedness challenge. It's a free weekly online challenge through September that includes activities individuals and families can accomplish each week. By the end of the month, participants will be better prepared to withstand and recover from emergencies. The Southwind Extension District has a wealth of information for all kinds of emergencies, that you can access by clicking on "Emergency Preparedness" here.
