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.
