Multicultural services for the whole family— Karen Jones
My name is Karen Jones. I am a mother of four beautiful children. Three years ago my husband, Brian, and I were faced with a tough decision to make. We had to decide if I should stay working when my eldest went off to school and have the other children cared for by someone else or to provide the care myself. We leaned on God for strength and wisdom knowing how difficult things could become, but knew he would provide for us.
A chance search online lead us to the WIC website. We applied and were able to receive the services. The wonderful services WIC provides for the community are amazing. They offer multi-cultural services for the whole family, not just women and children. Without these services, we would probably not have been able to afford some of the healthier foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables for our growing family. I am now able to provide healthier meals and snack options.
