Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) provides health education and health services to pregnant or breastfeeding women, women who have given birth within the last six months, infants, and children until their fifth birthday. Their services include:

  • Connecting members with other families to discuss healthy goals.
  • Answering questions concerning good nutrition practices for the family.  
  • Providing personal consults from WIC breastfeeding experts, in addition to added benefits such as breast pumps and special food packages.
  • Assisting locals with finding other health-care services in their area.

Many income and family types can qualify for WIC, including those who are on Medicaid, TANF, or SNAP. Even without being a part of those programs, residents can be eligible for WIC by meeting certain income guidelines (more information found at this link).

WIC hours and service areas are publicly available through multiple Texas Health and Human Services site pages, as well as  Austintexas.gov. Click here for more information, or review the sources below.
