New Services

All Caregivers are Welcome

We’re not just here for mothers, we’re here for anyone who cares for a child under the age of five, including fathers, grandparents, foster parents, step-parents and guardians. Caregivers with a low to medium income and those who are part of other programs such as foster or kinship care, Medicaid, SNAP or TANF are automatically income eligible.

WIC Locations

WIC is primarily completing appointments over the phone. Call 303-271-5780 to make an appointment with any of the Jeffco WIC Clinics.

There are only a few reasons that a participant would need to come into the office. If you need to come into the office, our Arvada and Lakewood offices are the only locations open to the public. Clients must call WIC first to set up a time to come in. Clients may need to come in for the following reasons: 

  • A new client needing an eWIC card issued 
  • Mom needing a pump issued

Hours of operation vary based on location; please click on the location you plan to visit below for more information.
