Find out what the Extension Homemakers are all about.
Nashville, Ark. – Are you looking for something to do? Do you enjoy helping others? Do you like to learn
new things? If so, being a member of the Howard County Extension Homemakers organization
may be for you. Extension Homemakers is a group of people who learn new skills to
improve their lives, and those around them. They enjoy helping out those in their
community by recognizing needs and meeting the needs of others. They also learn new
leadership skills through opportunities in their clubs. Now that restrictions are
being lifted, Extension Homemakers are ready to get active once again!
The Arkansas Extension Homemaker organization is one of the largest nonprofit
volunteer groups in the state with a membership of over 4,000 and over 350 clubs.
In Howard County, we have a membership of approximately 50 members in four clubs.
While most of the clubs are centrally located, the ideal goal is to have clubs in
all parts of the county. We want new clubs and members!
The University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service provides education
to help Extension Homemakers learn tips and techniques for improving their lives.
Many of the educational programs focus on nutrition, health and wellness, financial
management, and family life. There are also opportunities for members to learn new
ways of doing everyday activities.
Helping their communities improve is another goal of EHC. Many members
volunteer to help with blood drives, elections, helping people in need and providing
needed items for local and state hospitals. At the start of the pandemic, Howard County
EHC members made over 1,000 facemasks that were donated across the county and state.
The current statewide project is “Nourishing Our Roots, Nourishing Our Future – One
Million Meals, One Dime at a Time”. Through this project, members are helping to provide
meals and needed items. Clubs in the county have collected nonperishable food items,
baby items, and helped distribute those items through local food banks and The Call.
They have also collected and donated items to Arkansas Children’s Hospital and UAMS
on a regular basis. EHC strives to make a difference for those in the hospital and
those in need.
Extension Homemakers also have fun! They invite new people to join their
clubs and become active in their communities. They take trips to explore new opportunities
and learn new things. The recent Spring Council Meeting was held at Cossatot River
State Park where the group learned about one of the newest parks in the state and
the only state park in Howard County!
Extension Homemakers is for available for anyone regardless of race, color,
sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, age, disability,
marital or veteran status, genetic information, or any other legally protected status.
If Extension Homemakers is an organization you would like to learn more
about or to get involved with, contact the Howard County Extension Service at 870-845-7517
