Formerly known as "Extension Home Economics," the Family Consumer Sciences (FCS) program addresses the concerns of Bay County's families, which must make daily decisions about time, money, child rearing, health, and public affairs in the context of a complex, rapidly changing society, and hard economic realities. To make the right decisions they need practical, accurate, unbiased information. The FCS educators work with specialists on the campus of Michigan State University in a local-state partnership to provide research-based, up-to-date information on important topics that affect families and households.
