Families & Finances

The Extension Institute of Human Development & Relationships provides the tools Wisconsinites need to thrive as well-rounded, capable individuals and families. We support families in caring for each other in ways that promote growth and understanding. Our programs promote aging-friendly communities, coach effective parents and help families put technology, mindfulness and financial awareness to use. Our Families & Finances programming help to provide sources of well-researched, quality information about families and relationships, guide people through experiences throughout their lifespan, across health and developmental states, through caregiving, and through intergenerational relationships, and help families and individuals across Ashland County to achieve financial well being.
