The Lincoln County Association for Home and Community Education, Inc. (HCE) is a nonprofit educational organization comprised of local clubs in Lincoln County. The organization is unique in that the members extend the information they receive from the UW-Madison faculty and other reliable sources to the membership and community.
Program planning and leadership training are provided by a collaborative effort of WAHCE, Inc. and the UW-Madison Division of Extension. Local Extension Educators serve as advisers to the county HCE Association. Education programs are developed after careful study of local concerns.
With the COVID-19 pandemic and the Safer at Home order, all HCE activities at this time have been canceled. Stay safe and strong during this time and we will soon be back together.
