Family and Child Development

The family, in all its diverse forms, serves as a cornerstone of a healthy community. Improving the well-being and quality of life for individuals and families helps to build vibrant communities and a stronger nation. The Frontier Extension District strengthens and enhances the well-being of children, adults, and families by providing research-based education in the areas of child development; parenting education; poverty reduction; stress and trauma; adult and family relationships; and financial management.
