What Is HCE?
HCE is a non-profit organization that partners with UW-Extension Family Living Programs at both the state and the county level to bring quality educational programming to our members and our communities.
What Is Dodge County HCE?
Dodge County Association for Home and Community Education (Dodge County HCE) is one of 53 county organizations that maintain membership with the non-profit state organization – Wisconsin Association for Home and Community Education, Inc. (WAHCE, Inc.) Wisconsin Association for Home & Community Education
For over seventy years, Dodge County HCE has been providing educational programs for its members who then share the information they learn with family, friends and neighbors. Dodge County HCE also gives members opportunities to volunteer their time and talents within the local community.
Dodge County HCE Programs (Learning Sessions)
Educational programs, called Learning Sessions, on a variety of topics chosen each year by the members of Dodge County HCE are presented to members and the public.
Programs are presented by the UW-Extension Family Living Educator, by local resource people, and/or by HCE members who are knowledgeable in the topic being presented.
Most programs are held at the Dodge County Administration Building in Juneau.
Membership is open to all persons without regard to race, color, ethnic background or economic circumstances.
Members typically join HCE clubs, but may join as Individual Members. All members within the same household may take part in HCE activities.
