What Is WIC's Goal and Mission and Why?

The United Neighborhood Facilities Health Care Corporations' (UNFHCC) Erie County WIC Program's Mission is in tandem with that of the Pennsylvania WIC Program.

Our Mission, then, is to "improve the health and well-being of eligible pregnant women, new mothers, infants, and children to the age of 5."

We address that mission by "providing nutrition education breastfeeding support, healthy foods, and referrals to other health and social resources in the community - during the critical stages of fetal and early childhood development."

Our Mission then inspires us to promote and welcome networking with many sister human service agencies in Erie County - so that all families enduring economic and social hardship can access help in a timely, efficient manner.
