Baby & Child

VAC knows that even our youngest client needs assistance. We are here to help with baby formula, car/booster seats, diapers and baby wipes. Car/booster seats are provided through a partnership with Safe Kids Columbia. Diapers and wipes are provided through a partnership with First Chance for Children, as well as various donors. Formula and diapers are provided based on availability.

Baby Formula guidelines:

  • Funding is based on a $50 limit per Address per 12-month period for all monetary services.
  • Must be a WIC Client and have an upcoming appointment scheduled
  • Vouchers are provided to Columbia Walmart locations if formula requested is not available in the VAC pantry

Car/Booster Seat guidelines:

  • 1 car/booster seat per child
  • 2 car/booster seats per Address
  • VAC schedules 30 minute appointments through the Columbia Fire Department who hosts monthly car/booster seat events, as well as emergency appointments. Education is provided on how to install a brand new car/booster seat provided by Safe Kids Columbia, and how to appropriately place your infant in the seat.
  • Vouchers for a car/booster seat are provided by VAC to redeem at your scheduled appointment.
