Champaign County Home and Community Education (CCHCE) … Making a difference for families since 1918
Established on May 15, 1918, Home and Community Education of Champaign County (HCE) is a not for profit organization with 325 members within the 15 individual units/clubs that meet monthly at various times & places throughout Champaign County.
We are part of the Illinois Association of Home and Community Education (IAHCE) state organization that was formed in 1924 to help women become better home economists. Today HCE continues to focus on the home as well as community outreach, international awareness, cultural arts and continuing education. We are 1 out of 78 Illinois counties united together.
Each unit welcomes new members. The unit members meet to receive lessons, exchange ideas, share life experiences and socialize.
You can attend up-to-date Lessons for Living on aging, health, food & nutrition, families, children, education and the environment. Appealing to all ages, these research-based lessons are brought to you by the University of Illinois Cooperative Extension office. U of I Extension specialist translates current research based information into practical advice that HCE members can use in their daily lives.
Dues are $20.00 per year for those interested in joining a unit.
