Family & Consumer Sciences

People want to be healthy and productive but sometimes they need a little help. Local Family and Consumer Sciences Agents offer research based solutions for Georgia families through multi-county programming.

At the present time, Liberty County does not have a Family and Consumer Sciences Agent. However, we do have access to other counties with agents that will be glad to assist with any questions that you may have.

For information, please contact us at:
(912) 876-2133 or stop by the office at 100 Main Street, Suite 1200, Hinesville, GA 31313.

Please feel free to visit the UGA Family and Consumers Science website.
