Organization Overview: ACC (Arab American and Chaldean Council) is the premier non-profit human service organization providing services to the Middle Eastern and mainstream communities in Southeast Michigan.
Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Nutrition
The Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Nutrition Program assists in meeting the nutritional needs of expectant, breast feeding and postpartum women, infants, and children through age five. Program services include nutritional education and counseling, supplemental nutritious foods, breastfeeding support, infant formula for babies up to one-years-old, health screenings, lead poisoning education, lead testing, hemoglobin testing, and referrals for additional services.
In May 2007 ACC opened its third WIC program location in Hamtramck. “It’s wonderful and a very much needed program for the Hamtramck community,” said Dr. Anahid Kulwicki, Wayne County Deputy Director for Health and Human Services. “It’s wonderful that the organization (ACC) has made it their priority since Hamtramck has a diverse community. It’s needed especially now with this economically difficult period and for those who don’t know how to utilize or access the health care system. ACC’s WIC have staff that can break the linguistic barrier.”
