The Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program of Scott County Iowa serves pregnant, post-partum, and breastfeeding women; infants and children through age five. The program provides monthly checks to every family member who is eligible and enrolled in the program. The checks are for healthy foods that can be bought at participating grocery stores. WIC provides an average of $50-$75 worth of checks to each participant monthly.

Women, parents, and guardians of children under age 5, can call one of our two locations to check their program eligibility. WIC at Edgerton Womens Health Center 563-359-6635 and WIC at Friendly House 563-322-1105. Hours of operation for both facilities are Monday, Tuesday and Friday 8am-4:30pm, Wednesday at Friendly House 9:30am-6pm and Thursday at Edgertons 9:30am-6pm.

The WIC program also offers child immunizations and lead screens, as well as, breastfeeding support. Call today to see if you qualify for any our program benefits!

The QCA’s Only Free Press Can Really Use Your Support

 

"We're the River Cities' Reader, and we've kept the Quad Cities' only independently owned newspaper alive and free since 1993. Now we find our ability to continue providing all the features you love in serious jeopardy without the financial support of our readers.

So please help the Reader keep going with your one-time, monthly, or annual support. With your financial support the Reader can continue providing uncensored, non-scripted, and independent journalism alongside the Quad Cities' area's most comprehensive cultural coverage." - Todd McGreevy, Publisher
