No one cares like we do.
FCE members have cared about families and communities for more than 70 years.

Since 1936, FCE members have named and understood the issues of the day and then worked to help families gain control and gain some ground.

Together, we've helped to:

  • start the school lunch program

  • put program ratings on your TV

  • educate about seat belt safety & lobby for seat belt laws

  • activate rural bookmobiles

  • reduce estate taxes


Today, just as in 1936, there is so much to do--let's roll up our sleeves together.

We are an organization of volunteers. Our annual dues provide continuing education and leadership training opportunities for members, program materials, public service announcements, information on legislative issues impacting your family, and a newsletter. If you believe in what we do, join FCE today!
