Home and Community Education (HCE)

Wisconsin Association for Home and Community Education, Inc, (WAHCE) is a nonprofit educational organization comprised of local clubs within St. Croix County.  The organization is unique in that the members extend the information they receive from the University faculty and other reliable sources to the membership and community.

Program planning and leadership training are provided by a collaborative effort of WAHCE, Inc. and the UW-Extension Family Living Program.  The UW-Extension faculty serves as advisors to the county HCE Association.  Programs exist at both the state and the county level to bring quality educational programming to our members and our communities.
