Hamilton County Extension Homemakers

"To strengthen families through continuing education, leadership development, and volunteer community support"

Hamilton County Extension Homemakers are part of the Indiana Extension Homemakers Association and dedicated to empowering and enriching the lives of individuals, families and communities. 

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!

Extension Homemaker Creed

We believe in the present and its opportunities, in the future and its promises, in
everything that makes life large and lovely, in the divine joy of living and helping others, 
and so we endeavor to pass on to others that which has benefited us, striving to go 
onward and upward, reaching the pinnacle of economic perfection, in improving, enlarging
and endearing the greatest institution in the world, THE HOME.
