Community Referrals

As a WIC participant, you are able to call or inquire about services around the area for your specific needs. We may be able to assist in providing referrals, such as local doctors, pediatricians or OBs, temporary housing or shelter referrals, and assistance in applying for Medi-Cal, CalFresh or other programs benefits. You can count on WIC to direct you to the right people for support.
