How to get assistance

Keeping Mothers and Children Healthy

WIC’s mission is to safeguard the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating, and referrals to healthcare.

WIC serves pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women; infants; and children (up to age 5); who meet income guidelines and medical or nutritional risk.

The department provides:

  • Personalized nutrition counseling
  • Provides nutritious foods
  • Referrals for other services that can benefit the family
  • Provides breastfeeding support

For breastfeeding mothers:
WIC also provides breastfeeding education and assistance. Lactation consultations are available with a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor or an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. We also offer a breastfeeding support group from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Mondays in the Jones Conference Room at the health center.

Prenatal breastfeeding and cooking classes are also available.
Contact the WIC office for more information.
