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.
