Beginning June 15, the Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) will offer WIC services to the citizens of Liberty Hill.
Currently, Liberty Hill residents have to travel to WCCHD’s Georgetown and Cedar Park offices to receive WIC services.
The expanded WIC services are a result of a partnership between WCCHD and the Community Resource Centers of Texas, Inc, located in Liberty Hill.
“Community Resource Centers of Texas offered us office space in their Liberty Hill facility, and we determined it was an excellent time to offer WIC services to that community,” said WCCHD Executive Director Dr. Chip Riggins.
The WIC Program provides nutritious foods, education on healthy eating, health care referrals and breastfeeding information and support for mothers, babies and children up to 5 years of age.
Liberty Hill is listed as one of the fastest growing member cities in the Health District. More than 400 Liberty Hill clients that commute to Georgetown and Cedar Park for WIC services can now access those services close to home.
WIC service in Liberty Hill will begin Friday, June 15, from 8:30-11:30 a.m. The services will then be offered every third Friday of the month during the same hours.
“We hope the residents of Liberty Hill and surrounding communities will have easier access to public health services in the new location,” said WIC and Community Nutrition Program Director Tina Horkey.
The Community Resource Centers of Texas, Inc., is located at 155 Hillcrest Lane, Suite B, in Liberty Hill. All WIC services are provided free of charge.
