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.  FCS professionals enable individuals and families to develop the capacity for strengthening families and enhancing communities in an ever-changing world.  View our Ottawa County FCS Programs.
