Women, Infants and Children (WIC)

Were here to provide the information, tools, and support for moms and caregivers like you. Whether you need a sympathetic ear, free and healthy food, or a referral to outside care and social services, we're proud to provide you with the tools you need to be the mom you want to be. As part of the WIC community you can take advantage of any of the services we provide. Including:

Healthy Food
Food is only as good as the nutrients it provides. Through WIC moms receive monthly benefits on an EBT card to buy healthy food.

Nutrition Education
We offer guidance on how to shop for healthy food, how to prepare it and how to entice children to eat it. We also offer free counseling with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN) for clients at high nutritional risk.

Breastfeeding Support
We guide and educate moms to help them successfully achieve their breastfeeding goals. We also offer free counseling with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).

  ...And a Community of Resources
We can connect moms to additional resources, including healthcare professionals, immunization services, substance abuse counselors, domestic abuse counseling and social services.
