About the Alliance

Family & Consumer Sciences is the comprehensive body of skills, research, and knowledge that helps people make informed decisions about their well-being, relationships, and resources to achieve optimal quality of life. The field represents many areas, including human development, personal and family finance, housing and interior design, food science, nutrition, and wellness, textiles and apparel, and consumer issues.

The mission of the Alliance for Family & Consumer Sciences is to advance the profession by enhancing communication, developing leaders, and supporting public policy education and engagement.

Founded in 2006 by the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (AAFCS), the Alliance for Family & Consumer Sciences is a coalition of 24 organizations representing academia, industry, professional associations, and honor societies leading family and consumer sciences efforts around the globe. Today, AAFCS serves as the managing partner of the Alliance.
