  • Breastfeeding Support - WIC provides new and expecting moms with information and resources to get them ready to feed their new babies.
  • Referrals - WIC can help you and your family find a healthcare provider and medical home and provide referrals to other social services such as Medi-Cal, CalWorks, CalFresh and more depending on your individual needs.
