Family Health Programs (FCM/WIC)
aThe LaSalle County Health Department Family Case Management Program (FCM) provides outreach, comprehensive case management, and support services to prenatal women, infants and children. The primary objective of the program is to reduce infant mortality by ensuring early and consistent prenatal care for women throughout their pregnancy. Education on a healthy pregnancy is ongoing and individually structured to meet the needs of the client. After the baby is born, FCM staff assure that the infants and children are receiving periodic well baby/child check-ups and immunizations.
The mission of the LaSalle County Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program is to improve the health status of women, infants, and children; to reduce the incidence of infant mortality, premature births, and low birth weights; and to aid in the development of children. This program serves income-eligible pregnant, post-partum, breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age five years. The WIC program provides health screening, nutrition education and counseling, and supplemental foods including the formula for infants.
