Did you know that now any Colorado Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) client can go to any WIC office in Colorado to receive services? In a recent change to regulations, WIC clients are now free to go to the clinic that is most convenient and comfortable for them. 

“Our clients are motivated and busy parents,” said Montrose County WIC Manager Barb Eschrich. “This change will make life a little less complicated for parents of young children.” WIC is a state and federally funded program implemented locally by Montrose County Health and Human Services that includes nutritional education and breastfeeding support, nutritious foods to supplement one’s diet, screening and referrals. Those eligible for WIC include pregnant and breastfeeding mothers (up to one year postpartum), postpartum women who are not breastfeeding infants up to 6 months, infants, and children 5 years old and under.

The Montrose WIC Office is located in the county’s Health and Human Services building at 1845 South Townsend Avenue. Business hours are Monday to Friday 8am-5pm, or as arranged. There are also satellite WIC locations in Olathe and Nucla that offer flexible schedules. For information on WIC in Montrose, please call 970-252-5054 or in Nucla, please call 970-864-7319. Walk-in services are encouraged. Additionally, the next closest clinic is in Delta County at 225 West Sixth Street offering flexible appointments. For more information on Delta WIC, please contact Monica at 970-874-2185.
