WIC stands for “Women, Infants and Children.” WIC is a Special Supplemental Nutrition Program that saves lives and improves the health of nutritionally at-risk women, infants and children. Every eligible WIC client is interviewed on behavioral risk questions, measured for weight and height, and blood tested for iron status.
We operate four WIC clinics at the following locations, days, and times:
Monday and Wednesday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Register for WIC
To register at any time as a patient of NATIVE HEALTH WIC, please bring the following:
- Proof of residency – a utility bill
- Proof of income – a pay stub
- Photo ID
- If registering a child, please bring an immunization record or birth certificate of the child
All qualified clients—based on income and nutritional risk—receive nutrition education, action plan to improve risk factors and food vouchers redeemable at local grocery stores.
Food Vouchers will differ depending on the nutritional need and stage of your baby’s lifecycle. Vouchers can be redeemed at local grocery stores for milk, cheese, eggs, cereal, beans, peanut butter, fruit juice, etc. WIC does NOT replace lost or stolen vouchers.
The Breastfeeding Peer Counselor encourages, supports and guides pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. This opportunity is available to WIC clients at NATIVE HEALTH WIC sites, by telephone, at home, or in the hospital and will include breastfeeding classes, nutrition information, and more.
