The WIC program and Lebanon Family Health were truly a Godsend for me!

— Cindy J. Eberhart

I can remember how old I was the very first time I utilized the services of Lebanon Family Health. I was a seventeen-year-old high school student who did not have the support of family or the means to obtain birth control. I was told by a few of my friends about this place where you can go and no one will know you were there and they would not tell your parents—not that my parents would have cared anyway. I was a bit scared making the appointment and going in to see them about what I needed but my fears were put to rest when everyone was so friendly and caring.

Fast forward 3 years and I became pregnant and had no idea what I was going to do. My boyfriend wanted me to have an abortion and I did not want to do that. Again, I turned to Lebanon Family Health Services since I knew they offered assistance in these kinds of situations. The clinical staff listened to my predicament, offered me a referral to all the different options available and not once did I feel like I was being judged or disrespected. I chose to keep my baby and this led me to the final time I needed Lebanon Family Health.

I was a single mother working a full-time job but was not able to provide enough food for my child. I did not qualify for food stamps since my gross income was $10 over the limit. I was a mess. I did not know what I was going to do in order to get food for my child. I turned to Lebanon Family Health and was able to utilize their WIC program since my child had low iron. The WIC program and Lebanon Family Health were truly a Godsend for me!

Thirty-two years ago, I utilized different services that Lebanon Family Health had to offer. They now offer so many more options and programs than they did back then.  I am proud to say that I benefited from their services and I would highly recommend others to all of their programs.
