Healthy Families


Julie Cascio is the coordinator for the Health, Home and Family Development (HHFD) program in the Mat-Su/Copper River District. HHFD offers many programs that provide knowledge and skills for the optimal well-being of families and individuals. Specifically, we offer information on food safety and preservation, nutrition, financial management, home management, household equipment, family relationships, consumerism, and leadership skills.
