Women, Infants and Children (WIC)

WIC is a federally-funded nutrition program that provides benefits, nutrition counseling, and community referrals to pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, infants and children under five years of age in Bartholomew, Clark, Jackson, Jefferson, Jennings, Scott and surrounding Indiana counties.

WIC is designed to improve fetal development, reduce the incidence of low birth weight and premature births, reduce maternal and childhood anemia, and promote breastfeeding.

The WIC program helps families like yours start strong and stay that way. We give you benefits you can use to get nutritious foods, free.

We know that raising a family takes more than love, it takes money. Unfortunately, times are tight for families like yours all across Indiana. Every month, more than 155,000 Hoosiers count on WIC for more than free food. They count on us for good food, free.

Who’s eligible?

Pregnant women
New moms (up to six months after delivery)
Breastfeeding moms (up to one year after delivery)
Children under the age of five
You must live in Indiana and meet income guidelines. Check the income chart here* to see if your family may qualify. When you apply, you’ll receive a personalized nutrition assessment to see if the program is right for you.

Families already receiving Medicaid, Food Stamps, and TANF are income eligible for the WIC program.

Benefits to WIC Participants

Supplemental nutritious foods
Nutrition education and counseling at WIC clinics
Referrals to other health and social services

How does WIC work?

As a WIC applicant, you will contact the clinic in your community for a free visit to be enrolled and to pick up your benefits. At the appointment, you’ll receive nutrition education and breastfeeding support, and learn about other services you can use to help your family. The WIC benefits can be used at local grocery stores for cereal, juice, milk, eggs, peanut butter, beans, whole wheat bread, brown rice, whole wheat or corn tortillas, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, cheese, and baby food.

In accordance with Federal Law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

The Square Day Program

The Square:  Transforming Lives

through Community, Technology & Education

The Square, like “the town square,” is a gathering place for people of all ages and abilities, engendering a sense of community. It is facility-based with activities out in the community.

This newly re-imagined program is designed to meet growing demand in the community beyond routine special education. It serves post-high school young adults through seniors.

In the coming months the program will develop:

    >  A new media and study area with adaptive seating

    >  A lounge area and dining area where portable technology can be used

    >  An exercise area that incorporates technology

    >  A kitchen that may also be used for training, geared toward self-sufficiency and independence

This service is offered at New Hope Center at 725 Wall Street, Jeffersonville, IN 47130.

Supported Living

The Supported Living program serves adults with intellectual disabilities in their home living environment to assist them to maintain their community home and live as independently as possible. This program serves clients living alone, with up to three roommates, or clients who reside with their family. Supported Living services are primarily provided in the home, but also involve community access. Individuals in this program may need only a few hours of services a week, or up to 24 hours a day of assistance.

The Supported Living program is managed out of New Hope Center in Jeffersonville, and it serves clients living in Clark, Floyd, and Scott counties.

Skills Training

The Skills Training Program helps clients with mild to moderate intellectual or physical disabilities work toward personal goals to achieve their highest level of independence.

Goals focus on personal, social, educational, daily living, and community integration skills. Services are based on an individualized plan of care and can include services at New Hope Center or in the community. Activities occur in both group settings and one-on-one with staff. Facility group ratios range, depending on the activity, from 1 staff to 2-8 clients.

This program is offered in Clark, Scott and Floyd counties.

Respite, Attendant Care, & Homemaker Programs

Respite Services provide temporary or periodic care for a person with disabilities in the absence of their usual caregiver or to provide relief to their usual caregiver. Activities can include assistance with meal preparation, daily living skills, grooming, participating in hobbies or clubs, administration of medications, and assistance with accessing the community.

Attendant Care offers assistance to meet the daily living needs of a client of any age who is not able to care for themselves independently. These services allow a client to remain in their own home or community setting through assistance with cooking, eating, bathing, hygiene, errands, and household chores.

Homemaker Services provide assistance to an individual who is unable to complete household duties independently, to help them maintain a safe, healthy, and clean environment. Examples of services include dusting, sweeping or mopping, cleaning the bathroom, washing clothes, bed making, and lawn care.

This program is currently offered in Clark, Floyd and Scott counties.

Participant Assistance and Care

The Participant Assistance and Care (PAC) program supports clients in activities of daily living, self-care, and mobility to help ensure their health, safety and welfare. It also increases an individual’s independence at home. The program serves clients primarily in their personal or family homes, but it can also include community access.

The program is currently offered in Clark, Floyd and Scott counties.
