Family and Consumer Sciences
Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) specialists and educators work to improve the quality of life for all Oklahomans by providing educational and technical assistance. Current key areas of focus include helping state residents solve complex concerns and issues related to a high number of teenage pregnancies, low household-per-person income, child abuse and neglect, nutritionally inadequate diets, and needs specific to Oklahoma's increasing number of elderly residents.
