Kentucky Extension Homemakers Association


The Kentucky Extension Homemakers Association (KEHA) is a volunteer organization that works to improve the quality of life for families and communities through leadership development, volunteer service, and education. The organization was developed in cooperation with the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service. Across the state, County Extension Agents for Family and Consumer Sciences work closely with KEHA members and clubs to provide educational programming and coordinate community activities.  To find out about KEHA clubs and activities in a specific Kentucky county, contact the county office for the UK Cooperative Extension Service.  County Extension websites are accessible at
