Women, Infants & Children (WIC) Coordination
The Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Food Security Program connects new mothers and their young children with nutritional assistance during the critical early years of a child’s life. This year, HWCLI partnered with Long Island’s five WIC providers and nearly 30 WIC clinics, as well as the Federally Qualified Health Center clinics in which they operate, to create streamlined referral services, replicate best practices, and integrate resource systems where clients have access to all of the services they may need. HWCLI is proud to work with and advance the interests of the WIC community on Long Island.
Central American Children’s Defense Project
Since October 2013, more than 9,000 unaccompanied children have come to Nassau and Suffolk Counties. They need a legal, school and human service network that is coordinated and collaborative in its communications, service delivery, and advocacy.
HWCLI’s Long Island Immigrant Children Defense Project addresses the immediate and dire needs of recently arrived children from Central America by convening legal partners, school districts, and our network of health and human service agencies around the children’s needs to coordinate a unified system of service delivery. In addition, HWCLI provides training opportunities for health and human service staff in the field so that they are prepared.
To meet the specific needs of traumatized children. As school districts adapt to an ever changing student population, HWCLI helps to ensure that children are safe, protected, and have equitable opportunities.
Join us in creating a future for Long Island in which everyone has an equal opportunity to prosper and thrive.
