Home & Family provides current home economics information to consumers on the prairies. The site is maintained by the Manitoba Association of Home Economists (MAHE) – professional home economists committed to providing accurate and up-to-date information pertaining to the family.
The site was originally created by the Association of Saskatchewan Home Economists (ASHE) in recognition of the contributions of Emmie Oddie. Emmie Ducie Oddie, C.M., S.O.M is considered a prairie icon for her years of service to the rural community. For nearly five decades she used her home economics training to answer questions from readers of her column in The Western Producer. Emmie died July 6, 2013, in Saskatchewan at the age of 97. The Home & Family website was made possible by donations to the Emmie Oddie Recognition Fund of the Canadian Home Economics Foundation.
