COMMUNITY RESOURCES & FAMILY SUPPORT

If you’re pregnant, a caregiver, or a mom with a child under 5, WIC can help you get the right personalized support for you and your family. WIC utilizes federal funds to assist caregivers with a low to medium income with healthcare referrals, food and nutrition, breastfeeding support, and more. Those who are part of other programs such as foster care, medical assistance, or SNAP are eligible.
