Women, Infants and Children (WIC)
Community Health Alliance WIC will continue to enroll families in need of WIC services. We have temporarily suspended physical services at the following locations due to COVID-19:
- Sutro Head Start
- Wooster Family Resource Center
- Sun Valley
- Ronald McDonald Care Mobile
- Sparks Health Center
- Wells Medical Center
- Nell J Redfield Health Center on Neil Road.
If you receive WIC services at these locations, we encourage you to call (775) 870-4343 so our staff can best assist you with the WIC services you may need. We are conducting scheduled WIC appointments over the phone so our clients can continue to practice social distancing. If you would like to enroll in our WIC program, you can now apply and send eligibility information securely through our online application.
Our Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program provide nutrition education, breastfeeding support services, supplemental nutritious foods and referrals to health and social services. Our WIC participants range from working to non-working families, and we do not limit eligibility on the basis of citizenship or immigration status.
We are committed to protecting all patient information. We are bound by federal regulations to maintain the confidentiality of participant data and personal information. This means we do not inquire or collect information about one’s immigration status, nor do we share information about immigration or citizenship status with immigration authorities. We are, and have always been, committed to serving our community. It is our mission to give you and your family the best quality, affordable and comprehensive health care. No matter what.
