I have a new baby and I need information about health, nutrition and the proper development of my child. Where can I get help?

A good place to start is at the Public Health Nurses Office in the Community Resource Center in Idaho Springs. A variety of programs are available. Programs for Women’s Infants and Children (WIC) offer assistance with nutritional food vouchers and education for feeding all members of the family. Assistance with breast feeding and breast pump loaners for WIC clients also is available. Growth and development monitoring of your child also is available. Call us at 303-670-7546.
