Family & Consumer Sciences   arrow

Family & Consumer Sciences has historically been focused on all things home economics: food preservation and preparation, budgeting, meal planning, sewing, baking, and generalized family support and operation. Today, FCS has broadened and deepened it’s role to include all the functional elements of families and how they stay healthy and resilient. Routt County families have diverse backgrounds and needs, and so many things from education to finances to meal planning and healthy relationships begin in the home. We are here to support your efforts toward health and wellness for yourself, your family, and your community through classes that teach about stress and resilience, mental health, healthy eating habits, meal preparation and planning, family budgeting, entrepreneurship from home, and so much more.
