Mission Statement

  • Offer Educational Opportunities
  • Improve Leadership Skills of Members
  • Provide Service to Communities

The Calumet Association for Home and Community Education (CAHCE), formerly Calumet County Extension Homemakers, is a county chapter of the Wisconsin Association of Home and Community Education.  The WAHCE, Inc. is a non-profit, educational and charitable organization.  Membership is open to all individuals without regard to race, sex, color, ethnic background, residence or economic circumstances.

Our objective is to provide educational programs for members and their communities that will meet current and future social, economic and environmental needs.

The organization is unique in that the members extend the information they receive from the University of Wisconsin faculty and other reliable sources to the membership and the community.  Program planning and leadership training are provided by a collaborative effort of WAHCE, Inc. and the University of Wisconsin Extension – Family Living Program. UWEX faculty serves as advisors to both the state and county associations.


HCE Offers You Opportunities

Learn – We meet with friends and neighbors to share skills and educational programs on a wide variety of topics.

Grow – We experience personal growth and form lasting friendships when we share leadership responsibilities for program and projects.

Care – Making a difference in today’s world is important to us. We proudly support projects which help children and families live better lives.
