Family Living

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.

 

 

 

 

Family Living Programs focus on parenting, financial education, eating well & being active, which helps families thrive in a rapidly changing world. Residents can participate in programs to help them increase their financial capability, become financially healthy and achieve their financial goals.  Seniors benefit from exercise programs including Strong Women. Families of all ages can benefit from Get Moving, Walworth County’s summer walking program.

UW-Extension and UW-Madison maintain a Food Safety and Health website with food safety and preservation information.

We invest in people to grow stronger communities. For more information on Family Living Programs, go to www.uwex.edu/ces/flp or visit us on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/UWExtensionFamilyLiving.
