Arkansas Extension Homemakers Council
Arkansas Extension Homemakers Council (AEHC) members have made it their mission to empower individuals and families to improve their lives through continuing education, leadership development, and community service.
We are one of the largest volunteer groups in the state
With a membership of 4,400 and over 350 clubs, there are many opportunities to get involved at the local county level. Extension Homemakers, the Cooperative Extension Service, University of Arkansas, and the United States Department of Agriculture are partners in providing education to families throughout Arkansas.
AEHC - we connect research to Arkansans
We work with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service. The Cooperative Extension Service connects trusted research to the adoption of best practices in Family and Consumer Sciences including:
- personal finance,
- nutrition, and
- personal development.
We create opportunities for members to develop leadership skills that increase self-confidence, improve communication, and enable individuals to become more active in community engagement.
We believe that by working together we can create opportunities, enrich lives, and strengthen communities. Our members contribute to a wide variety of community service projects across the state. Last year, AEHC members volunteered a total of 705,275 hours with an estimated dollar value of $16,616,279.
