The goal of the Family and Consumer Sciences program is to improve the quality of life for individuals and families in Russell County.  We help educate and connect individuals and families to research-based knowledge to improve their everyday lives. We encourage people to be healthy through good nutrition and food safety, to make wise financial decisions, and to balance the demands of life and work. Our programs develop families' skills to improve their lives, including meal-planning, parenting, building relationships, and home management.
