Women, Infants and Children (WIC)

Notice: We are keeping our eye on the potential government shutdown. We want you to know that there are NO CHANGES to WIC services at this time.

Washington County WIC provides nutrition education, breastfeeding support, healthy food, health referrals and other services free of charge to Oregon families who qualify. WIC's goal is to help keep pregnant and breastfeeding women and children under age five healthy.

WIC is for all kinds of families: married and single parents, working or not working. If you're a father, mother, grandparent, foster parent or other legal guardian of a child under five, you can apply for WIC.

We have three locations, all located close to public transportation, in Hillsboro, Beaverton and Tigard.

  • Children on WIC eat foods with more iron and vitamin C, visit their doctors more regularly and receive their shots on time.
