Dorchester WIC Program Now at Neponset Health Center
Dorchester, MA — Harbor Health’s Women Infant Children Nutrition (WIC) program moved its operations from 10 Minot Street to 398 Neponset Avenue in Dorchester, joining the Pediatrics and Women’s Health departments located on the 2nd floor of the Neponset Health Center.
According to Kevin Casey, Executive Director at Neponset Health Center, “the move was necessary to increase access and make it more convenient for pregnant women and new moms to obtain all the services they need in one place, meeting Patient Centered Medical Home standards for better coordinated patient care”. In addition to WIC benefits, patients will have access to a Parent 2 Parent case manager also available as part of the new maternal child health team.
The Women, Infants, Children Nutrition (WIC) program is free to qualified families and provides healthy foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and referrals to healthcare and support services.
Parent 2 Parent (P2P) is a partnership between Tufts Medical Center and program sites in the Dorchester and Chinatown neighborhoods of Boston and Quincy. The primary goal of P2P is to reduce infant mortality and morbidity by improving access to health care for pregnant women and their children. P2P redefines prenatal care to include social services, education and advocacy. Maternal and child health outreach workers are trained to provide access to social supports and medical services for pregnant women, mothers and their young children.

Health Center or to make an appointment, please call 617-265-4380.
