Family Resource Management and Aging

K-State Research and Extension Family and Consumer Sciences Programs transform lives through linking research and evidence based education with life experiences to help people improve their lives, their families, and their communities. Personal, family and community well being is dependent upon many kinds of knowledge and skills which are intertwined and inseparable. We provide a broad base of expertise to help solve complicated problems by teaching these essential living skills: Healthy Relationships, Healthy Living Choices, Financial Well Being, Strong Leaders, and Strong Communities.
