The University of KY chapter of the Association of Family Consumer Sciences (UKAFCS) is a club dedicated to the Consumer Sciences. We welcome all majors in HES and we help to bring together students and professionals  in the field. UKAFCS is connected to the Kentucky Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (KAFCS) which is an affiliate of the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (AAFCS).

The Mission of KAFCS

The Kentucky Association of Family and Consumer Sciences is an affiliate of the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences. It is an educational and scientific organization dedicated to improving the quality of individual and family life through education, research, cooperative programs, and public information. KAFCS serves as the Commonwealth's voice for the Family and Consumer Sciences profession, integrating knowledge from diverse fields to assist with the solving of everyday problems and families. Our members work toward empowering people to improve their quality of life.


Each year, UKAFCS puts on a fall festival in support of Autism. We help out throughout the Lexington-Fayette area by volunteering for charities and events that occur throughout the year.

Trips are taken throughout the year as well that are sponsored by UKAFCS. So far this year, we have taken trips to Good Shepherd Sheep Farm, and Louisville. Participating in the Thanksgiving Basket Brigade is also an opportunity that we enjoy.
