What Is an Extension Homemakers Club?

It is an organization that provides educational opportunities in a fun and social atmosphere. Extension Homemakers clubs generally meet once a month to share information that will help strengthen our homes and families. There are extension homemakers clubs all over the world, with about 13,000 members in the Indiana Extension Homemakers Association. In Johnson County, we have more than 250+ members participating in 12 local clubs and Mailbox membership.

The Indiana Extension Homemakers website provides additional information.

How Is Extension Homemakers Different from Other Organizations?

While other organizations may be primarily social or service clubs, our main goal in Extension Homemakers is education. We strive to broaden our member's horizons by providing in-depth information in an informal setting. We also provide volunteer support in our community and work to encourage leadership qualities in our members. And, of course, we like to have fun, too!
