Families have always been an integral part of the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service.  From food preservation practices and clothing your family, to supervising the Oklahoma Home and Community Education groups the family has always been the center of the programs that Family and Consumer Science Educators offer.

Family finances, nutrition and health, parenting, safety and leadership are just a few of the topics that we address daily.  Whether you just have a question or enroll in a series of workshops we will help you get the answers you need to help keep your families healthy mentally, physically, and financially.  Our information is based on the most recent research from Oklahoma State University.

In FCS program areas, educators focus on specific impact areas across the state.  These impact areas are based upon input from National Initiatives, Program Advisory Committee recommendations, clientele needs, and expertise of the local Educator.  The impact areas in Cherokee County are Family Resilience, Health and Hunger.  Below is a listing of major programming, lesson titles, resources available in each of the impact areas.
