Established on May 15, 1918, Champaign County Home and Community Education (HCE) – (HCE – past name of organization Champaign County Home Bureau later Home Extension) is a not for profit organization with 300 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.

Appealing to all ages, these research-based lessons are brought to you by the University of Illinois Cooperative Extension office.
