HCE, formerly known as Home Bureau, is an organization that promotes social and economic well being in the member's homes and communities. Many volunteer hours are spent helping 4-H clubs, local churches, and schools.

The group is associated with the Country Women's Council (CWC) and the Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW). Deon will spend three weeks In Western Australia with host families, including at least one sheep station, learning about Australian life.

Deon will be promoting IAHCE and Illinois' 200th anniversary, as well as showing the Anti-Ouch Pouch mastectomy pillow. One week will then be spent at the ACWW international conference in Melbourne, along with several IAHCE officers."
