Home demonstration work is an essential part of the educational program of the Cooperative Extension Service in Agriculture and Home Economics of the Smith-Lever Act of May 8, 1914. The act gave authority for the United States Department of Agriculture and State Land-Grant Colleges to join forces in establishing and maintaining an out-of-school educational program. The main purpose of the program is to aid men, women, and youth in applying research results and other accepted practices in improving their farm homes and communities.
The basic philosophy of the program has been to "help people help themselves." The home demonstration agent works with all farm families and community leaders, also with urban families in helping them to analyze family living and to develop programs that will aid them in making any desired changes.
