My son has really bad allergies to dairy and this was known to wic and prescription was given but because he’s two it changes so the response was well we don’t have it (which means they lost it) and I can cancel your benefits... wow as a single parent I need all the help. Customer service is also terrible, they snap randomly. Maybe another location is best not Barnum ave Bridgeport ct.

Do you have parenting classes available or can you recommend parenting classes. I have a neighbor that could benefit from parenting classes and WIC.
