Oregon WIC Coordination with 211

By Oregon WIC Program

Oregon WIC and four other public health programs have a joint contract with 211info, the state information, and referral call center, to provide information and referrals to any caller searching for services related to pregnancy, food assistance, and nutrition assistance. Information and referral specialists can screen individuals who call or text 211info for eligibility and provide information about the closest WIC clinic and other services.  211 info also has a smartphone app that individuals are increasingly using to access referral information in lieu of calling. For more information, contact Cenaida.Valdivia2@dhsoha.state.or.us or tiare.t.sanna@state.or.us.
