UW-Extension Family Living Programs enrich families and strengthen communities. Backed by university research, we work for Wisconsin families by:

  • Helping communities respond to issues such as childhood obesity, financial security, and aging.
  • Providing leadership for policies that help children, youth and families succeed.
  • Increasing knowledge about parenting, health and nutrition.
  • Offering consumers and families more strategies for managing their money.
  • Reaching out to diverse families with education and resources.
  • Using cost effective approaches to reduce negative family issues and build more resilient families.


These program are sponsored by Door County Home and Community Education.  Programs are free and open to the general public.  Please call to register one week in advance of the program date.
