Springfield-Greene County Health’s Women, Infants & Children (WIC) program is moving to the new Jordan Valley Community Health Center clinic at 649 E Elm St. in Republic. The existing WIC location Harrison St. in Republic will be closed tomorrow as the staff works to relocate to the new location.

The Republic WIC office is a full-service WIC location offering food package benefits, nutrition education, breastfeeding support and other services. Other WIC locations include two full-service offices in Springfield (1720 W Grand St. and 2105 W Kearney St.) and five satellite locations for eWIC benefits open one day a week: 

  • Missouri Career Center (2900 E Sunshine St.).
  • Renew United Methodist in Willard (304 S Farmer Rd.).
  • Westside Public Health Center (660 S Scenic Ave.).
  • St. Elizabeth Ann Seton (2200 W Republic Rd.).
  • O’Reilly Center for Hope (1518 E Dale St.)

For more information about the WIC program, locations, and hours, or to find out if you qualify, call (417) 864-1540 or visit WICworks417.org.

WIC’s mission is to safeguard the health of women, infants and children who are at nutritional risk by providing nutritious foods to enhance diets, information on healthy eating and referrals to health care and other community resources. 

WIC services are provided to eligible women who are pregnant, breastfeeding and/or post-partum mothers, as well as infants and children up to the age of five. The income eligibility threshold is 185% of the federal poverty level. For a family of three, that currently equates to an annual gross household income of about $42,606. For a family of four, the threshold is $51,338.
