WashCo services for Women, Infants and Children moves to different Tigard site
Washington County Public Health has relocated its Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program in Tigard. The new office is at Willowbrook Business Center, 11515 SW Durham Road, Suite E8.
In 2018, Washington County WIC served nearly 15,000 individuals at its three locations in Hillsboro, Beaverton and Tigard, according to a news release.
The WIC program focuses on nutrition and support for low- to moderate-income pregnant women and families with young children through breastfeeding support groups, nutrition education, and benefits for healthy foods available locally.
WIC will share the new space with Community Action, which serves over 26,000 low-income Washington County residents every year.
The organization provides life-changing services in early childhood development, energy assistance, family development and housing stability. To reach Community Action at the new location, call 503-648-6646.
The new WIC also will contain an education classroom at this location, something not available at its former location at 7360 S.W. Hunziker St.
Washington County Disability, Aging and Veteran Services will also occupy space at the new location. A Veteran Services Officer will hold office hours on weekdays to assist veterans in getting benefits and connecting them with resources. Call 503-846-3060 to make an appointment.
"Sharing space with these other organizations will allow all of us to serve people in a more holistic manner," says WIC Program Supervisor Tara Olson. "Connecting individuals and families directly with other resources will be much easier to do at this new location."
