State Assistance

STATE ASSISTANCE

As you can see, I gave this one it's own special category because trust me this will be beneficial for SOMEONE, a few or many:):)I want to tell you all about this great program it is called WIC, stands for women, infant and children. They give assistance to low income families through food vouchers. These food vouchers are for nutritious foods such as: eggs,milk,ceareal,peas,peanut butter,etc. You can locate your wic office here http://www.fns.usda.gov/wic/ or simply type in WIC programs in google. Restrictions apply but just give it a try, doesn't hurt!

Who is served by WIC?

* Pregnant women.
* Breastfeeding women with children under 12 months of age.
* Non-breastfeeding women with children under 6 months of age.
* Infants and children under 5 years of age.

Fathers, grandparents, foster parents or other guardians may apply for WIC for their children. (http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/wic/about_us.shtml#desc)

Once your baby is born they give you vouchers for formula which as you know can really help you save. I encourage those that feel they could benefit to apply for it:) Also pass around this information, I'm sure it will help someone out:)

What a country.

There is nothing like that in our country.

I sure hope someday there will be.
