Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program
WIC is a free food and preventive-health program for pregnant and breastfeeding women, infants and children. Pregnant women, and children under five years of age, may be eligible for WIC services. Income guidelines benefit working families on tight budgets, unemployed families and families on public assistance or medical coupons.

In collaboration with Step by Step, a community agency, Franciscan offers community resources, referrals, education, financial assistance, housing, family planning, counseling, nutritional education and more to women in need, both during pregnancy and the weeks following childbirth.
