Family is at the heart of many of MSU Extension’s programs, and keeping Michigan families strong and successful—financially, emotionally and physically—is a big part of measuring our own success. MSU Extension programs help you deal with issues related to the entire age spectrum, including topics such as aging and early childhood development. Programs devoted to keeping families safe include those dealing with bullying and violence prevention. Caregivers can find information to help them provide better care, and everyone can find help managing their complex family relationships. And in these financial times, nothing could be more welcome than programs that provide personal financial management help. Families can count on MSUE for the information they need.
