FCS_PhotoCollageWorking Together for Montana Families. Problems don't always have borders and neither should solutions. A single issue may have multiple impacts within a community that require a strategic, coordinated response. To address complex community concerns, MSU Extension specialists and agents work together and team with partners to combine expertise and resources to deliver solutions that make an impact.

Family and Consumer Sciences views the family, in all its diverse forms, as the cornerstone of a healthy society. Our mission is to empower individuals, families and communities to make informed decisions with unbiased, research-based information. For more than 100 years, professionals within the Montana State University Extension Family and Consumer Sciences program have worked to serve family and community needs. Throughout Montana, MSU Extension educators offer learning experiences to improve life, health and finances in your home and community.
