WIC office moving to downtown Ironton

In an effort to provide convenient services for new and soon-to-be mothers, the Lawrence County WIC office is relocating to downtown Ironton.

The office, which had been in Coal Grove for three years, will move to the Workforce Development Resource Center between Third and Second streets.

The newly renovated space will be closed the week of Thanksgiving and reopen on Dec. 2.

Debbie Bailey, director of WIC, said combining service with the Ironton-Lawrence County Community Action Organization’s other programs will be a plus for the office’s 1,900 clients.

“It will be easier for clients to receive more services in one area with less travelling,” Bailey said.

The WIC program offers nutritious foods and education for pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women, as well as infants and children up to age 5.
