April is Family Strengthening Month

Let’s unite for kids and families! At the University of Wisconsin-Madison Extension, we are committed to helping families raise children in safe, stable, and nurturing homes.

In 2023, we provided 600+ classes and 10,000+ educational contacts to parents and caregivers in Wisconsin. We know that children do well when their parents and caregivers do well. Join us!
