Leslie County 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.

 

At every meeting, our members are trained in a number of different areas. Our most common areas are Health & Nutrition, Crafts, and Development of Leadership Skills. Membership is only $6 PER YEAR! Your membership fees go to support our many events and activities. Three of our largest events are getting together to design and create baby blankets for the residents of the local hospital and Hospice of Leslie County. We also make and donate head and arm chair covers to give to the Cancer Center in Hazard. Lastly, every Christmas we give Christmas presents to every resident of the local nursing home. If you feel you would be interested in joining us, we would love to have you!
