WIC

Engaging Men & Dads at WIC
The Alameda Fathers Corps shared how they increase involvement of fathers in children’s lives by focusing on factors specific to the needs of men and the challenges they face in fulfilling their role as fathers.

Welcoming African American Families at WIC
To engage more eligible families, increasing our understanding and implementation of best practices that welcome and include African American families can help local WIC staff establish WIC as a key community service and partner.

Millennials in WIC – Reaching today’s Young Parents
Moms and dads in the “millennial” generation have grown up in a changing world that impacts how they communicate and learn best. UC Berkeley intern and CWA consultant Maggie Rasnake explored general guidelines for communicating with “millennials” and specific steps to keep WIC valuable and relevant to clients in their late teens to early thirties.

What If…? Exploring WIC Improvement Concepts
Karen Farley, CWA Executive Director, shared the results from the “What If” Survey conducted last summer and fall, where many WIC staff, participants, partners and friends submitted ideas for how to make WIC even better.
