Diversified Resources INC.

Our agency provides community-based and in-home services to qualified individuals as an alternative to nursing home placement and seeks to reduce hospitalizations and/or emergency room visits. We work with frail persons who meet eligibility requirements.

WIC

Is a nutrition program designed to help pregnant women, new mothers and children under age 5 eat well and stay healthy. WIC provides nutrition education, vouchers for healthy foods, breastfeeding information and support and referrals for healthcare, dental care, and other services that can benefit the entire family. All services are free.  All kinds of families can participate in WIC: married and single parents, working or not working, foster parents, grandparents or other legal guardians.

To qualify, you must:

    • Be pregnant OR be a breastfeeding mom OR a mom who had a baby in the past 6 months OR have a child under 5
    • Have a family income less than 185% of the poverty level (ex: a family of 4 is eligible if they earn less than $43,568 a year)

If you receive SNAP (food stamps), Medicaid or TANF, you are automatically income eligible for WIC. However, you do not have to receive these benefits to qualify. Also, there are no immigration or citizenship requirements for WIC. To find out more information or to apply for WIC, contact the Pierce County Health Department at 912-449-2032, call 1-855-WIC-4YOU or visit www. sehdph.org/wic.htm.
