Bureau County Home and Community Education Association

Bureau County Home and Community Education Association

HCE stands for Home & Community Education Association. It is a unique organization that promotes, supports, and educates individuals, families and the community through educational programs provided by University of Illinois Extension.

HCE offers continuing quality education, leadership and friendship. The Bureau County HCE is part of an international organization where members meet with friends and neighbors to share skills and educational programs on a wide variety of topics.

Although HCE is an international organization, each unit has its own unique personality. Every HCE unit in the state has one primary purpose: helping members find a better way to a better life through education. Anyone – male or female – singles or couples – young or old – may join HCE.

Unit memberships are the most common. Individual groups throughout the county meet socially to receive educational programs that they then re-teach in their community. Currently there are 4 units in Bureau County, offering a large variety of interests and activities.

To find out more about joining a local HCE unit or organizing a new unit contact the University of Illinois Extension - Bureau County office at (815) 875-2878.
