Association for Home and Community Education

Florida Association for Home and Community Education clubs are sponsored by the University of Florida/Volusia County Extension through the auspices of the USDA and the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Florida.

Members belong to a Florida Association of Home and Community Education club, which is a group of friends and neighbors who come together to share their skills, learn and make friends. Members attend monthly learning sessions provided by the University of Florida Extension Service and present those lessons to club members at their club meetings. Members also belong to a county council that meets five four times a year.

Members of this organization are a part of the National Association for Home and Community Education. FAHCE membership dues are set by the club and council. FAHCE members are involved in numerous educational projects and activities. Educationally, they support:

  • Children's needs
  • Environmental Issues
  • Aging and Intergenerational Issues
  • Literacy Programs and special projects

Members can attend the state conference, FAHCE camp, district events and other activities. Call the Extension office concerning FAHCE clubs and membership.
