At first I hated going to the WIC office because everytime I went there it was so cramped and the building itself was really small hardly any places to sit, but recently they got a new building same place but different building its much bigger and more places to sit comfortably while waiting to be seated and they also added some play toys for the impatient kids to play with. My visit to the office is now enjoyable instead of antipation on when im gonna get out of there. The staff are really friendly, never had a problem. This place is great.
Hello, About 5 years ago, I brought a bunch of new Teddy Bears, coloring books/crayons, etc to a women's and children's shelter in Shiprock. I believe that place has since shut down because of tax payment problems. I live in Boise, Idaho and feel that children who are caught up in an abusive situation could use some comforting--hence the teddy bears. Is there a new Navajo shelter in Shiprock that could use things like this? For the past 4 years, I have given things like this to shelters in Kayenta and Chinle.
