It takes a village to raise a child, and we are proud to be a member of yours.

Here at Community Health Alliance, we understand that it takes a village to raise a child, and we are proud to be a member of yours. We are the second-largest WIC provider in Northern Nevada and help support thousands of families in raising happy, healthy children. 

We provide education, breastfeeding support services, supplemental nutritious foods, and referrals to health and social services to pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, infants, and children under the age of 5 who live in Nevada. We also offer additional one-on-one support, monthly virtual support groups, and can provide internal and external referrals to expert breastfeeding and lactation care.

Our WIC participants range from working to non-working families, and we do not limit eligibility on the basis of citizenship or immigration status.

Below is a preview of the services and support we offer families:

  • Health screenings
  • Supplemental nutritious foods, nutrition education, and nutrition counseling
    • The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for WIC provides food and nutritional education to low-income pregnant and postpartum women as well as infants and children up to age 5. We offer a range of healthy foods including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, milk, cheese, fish, tofu, and more.
  • Breastfeeding support services
    • We provide mother-to-mother breastfeeding support and education during pregnancy and after birth. In addition, we provide lactation counseling which includes assessment of breastfeeding, assistance with latching, providing breast pumps or breastfeeding aids as needed, and developing a plan to help the mom reach her breastfeeding goals while also instilling confidence and empowerment.
  • Farmers’ market coupons
  • Referrals to health and social services
  • Assistance finding a medical provider or dentist

4-year-old had lots of cavities!

“My 4-year-old had lots of cavities and I went to different offices for different opinions. Many offices wanted a lot of money and to put her to sleep. Dr. Montoya worked with my daughter to help her feel safe and make her be still so she could do the work while she was awake. Nowhere else would even try. My daughter actually enjoys the dentist now, and all five of my daughters are all better brushers now from talking and learning from Dr. Montoya. She is a blessing.”

I am now receiving equal if not better care than ever.

A long time ago I had money & great health insurance. That was a long time ago! But I discovered Community Health Alliance who took me in on a sliding fee scale. I am now receiving equal if not better care than ever.

Thank you for being my doctor!

Your clinic helps so many people and moves them through very efficiently.  I never mind waiting because I know you are helping someone.  And, when you come in to see me you always give me your full attention, as if I am your only patient.  Your good will and positive intent always shine through. Thank you for being my doctor.

I feel like I just walked in and won the lottery.

I feel like I just walked in and won the lottery…I lost one tooth 2 years ago and I was heartbroken and said I never wanna lose a tooth again. I have been so scared that I would not be able to afford my teeth and now I know I can! I am so so so happy! Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart!
