What about free insulin for those who can't afford it!? SMH

Customer testimonials:


Three years ago I suddenly moved from Canada to the United States, and found out I was pregnant with my second child. I was a single mom with an autistic 2 year old and another baby on the way. I heard about the WIC office through my doctor and nervously headed down there. It was the best decision I ever made, the workers there are so kind and welcoming, never judged me or my kids, and spend countless time helping me figure out how to get back on my feet. It’s been 3 years now being a WIC family and my little family is thriving. I know my kids are getting the proper nutrition they need, and that they are up to date on their vaccines and lead screenings as well.


“I would like to  show appreciation to this department!  I have brought my children here for the past 20 years! They are all very friendly and kind, always make my children feel safe and happy! I appreciate everything this facility has done for me and my children!  They get 5 stars in my opinion!”


“We are always met with a smile and up to date information. We have always felt welcome and safe receiving our vaccines with WCHD. They have also been helpful reminding us of upcoming appointments!”
