The Official WIC program is available to low to moderate income pregnant women, recently delivered women, breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk. Fathers can also bring their children to apply for WIC. You may apply for WIC if you are working or unemployed. Check the Income Guidelines Table to see if you are eligible for WIC. This website was created for women looking for WIC information and locations. We are also working towards adding other locations and services that may help out women.
Health services of the clinic are tailored to meet the needs of the community. The areas of focus include obesity, asthma, infant mortality, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. These health problems are far more prevalent in the African-American community.
