About HCE

The Winnebago County Association of Home and Community Education is a nonprofit organization that partners with University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension, Human Development & Relationships and Health & Well-Being programs at both the state and county levels to bring quality educational programming to our members and our communities.


HCE offers opportunities for:

  • Learning in a social setting
  • Sharing what we learn
  • Caring to make a difference in our homes, communities, and the world


  • To provide continuing education for members and others on issues that will strengthen families and communities.
  • To develop and improve leadership skills of members.
  • To build coalitions with other organizations and agencies having similar objectives and concerns as WAHCE, Inc.
  • To promote friendships and understanding with all people of the world.


The roof of the home symbolizes our past heritage with Extension Homemakers. The letters

H (Home)

C (Community)

E (Education)

make it a suitable logo by the state, county, and club. The house without walls confirms a commitment to membership open to all, regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sex, age, handicap, or national origin.
