Oklahoma Home and Community Education

OHCE is a state-wide organization with a presence in every county in Oklahoma that helps individual members, their families and communities develop a higher level of living through education. OHCE’s ultimate mission is to educate its members to be well-informed and able to handle change in their homes and communities. This organization is very well positioned to develop community leaders and informed citizens through research based educational programs. Through the partnership with the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, OHCE is able to provide further opportunities to apply community service projects statewide.

Family and Consumer Sciences

The Family and Consumer Sciences Extension unit of OSU Extension is made up of human scientists (i.e., county educators and extension specialists) from Oklahoma State University who focus on issues that affect our daily lives. These issues include: Health, Hunger, Environment, Finances, Family Breakdown, Jobs and Employment, Resilience, Risky Behaviors, Safety, and Agricultural Science. We work closely with Extension’s 4-H to support positive youth development in the state. We work together as issue teams to bring the best science to solving problems and enhancing lives.


The goal of Family and Consumer Sciences is to help Oklahoma’s families, youth and individuals develop and grow in safe and healthy ways. This is approached through research-based education that focuses on building upon our understanding of the different aspects of their lives and how they affect others. We survey the population in Oklahoma in each county through issue scanning and our local program advisory committees (PACs) to learn about their needs and how we can help provide education that helps people improve society and the economy.
