Families & Finances

Stronger Families, Better Communities

Extension Educators work with families, agencies, volunteers and community groups to deliver a variety of resources and services. The Family Engagement and Relationships programs in Eau Claire County are focused on helping build community capacity to support and work with underserved families.  By focusing on exploration of effective responses to issues affecting families such as poverty, prevention of child abuse and neglect, literacy, and building healthy relationships, we can strengthen families, impact our community and help improve the quality of life.

Yia Lor serves as the Human Development & Relationships Educator, with a focus on Family Engagement and Relationship programming. She graduated from UW-Eau Claire with a Bachelor of Social Work and UW-Madison with a Master of Social Work. She is from Eau Claire and has worked in various youth-serving organizations in the county.
