Family and Consumer Sciences Programs

The Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) program addresses important issues facing Tennesseans as they cope with social, economic and technological changes. Many of these changes threaten the health, safety and well-being of individuals, families and communities.  The subject matter of Family and Consumer Sciences such as financial management, nutrition, sustainable housing and environmental health issues have moved to the forefront of community and legislative agendas, addressing these issues helps develop strong families which ultimately leads to strong communities.

Programs are targeted to:

  • families

  • young parents
  • working families
  • senior citizens
  • limited resource families
