What is a Family and Consumer Sciences County Extension Agent?

A Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) County Extension Agent is a person who can assist you with a wide body of research-based knowledge on topics that affect your entire life:  your food, your family, your house and your finances.



Missoula County is fortunate to have a Family and Consumer Sciences Extension agent as part of a partnership between Montana State University Extension and Missoula County.  Make sure to thank our commisioners and state representatives about this important and relevent program that serves the people in our county.
