WHAT IS HCEA?

HCE stands for "Home and Community Education Association".  (They are not a part of Extension, but rather an outside group that Extension provides programming to as needed.) 

Their Mission Statement

H – They support the Home and the whole family.

C – They support the communities we live in.

E – They encourage our members with education.
