Wisconsin Public Health Information and Referral Services

The State of Wisconsin is committed to connecting women, children, and children with special needs to services. Several public health hotlines have been developed to meet these needs. The hotlines are answered 24 hours/day by professional Information and Referrals Specialists. The Specialists will refer callers statewide to the most appropriate agencies to apply for public benefits, such as, WIC, Birth to Three, Badgercare Plus, FoodShare, Prenatal Care Coordination, Childcare Subsidies, Early Intervention Programs, and the Wisconsin Well Woman Program.

Maternal and Child Health Hotline

(800) 722-2295

The Maternal and Child Health Hotline is available to answer questions regarding a variety of programs for women and young children. In addition to serving as an initial point of contact for WIC offices across the state, we share information with all of our callers about other resources that may be helpful to them, including Badgercare, FoodShare, W2, Childcare Subsidies and Prenatal Care Coordination.

Wisconsin First Step

(800) 642-7837

At Wisconsin First Step our mission is to assist parents in finding resources for their children, aged birth to 21, with special needs. Not only will we help you get connected to the Birth to Three Early Intervention Program, but we can also share information about other programs that may benefit your child and family, including care coordination, therapies, respite care, autism services, behavioral health resources, transition assistance and employment services.

Services Hotline for Women, Children and Families

(877) 855-7296

The goal of the Services Hotline is to give Wisconsin families access to resources that may be able to assist them in the event of an unexpected pregnancy. The Services Hotline can provide information regarding public benefits and private agencies that may be beneficial, including Badgercare, FoodShare, the Wisconsin Works (W2) program, Child Support agencies, Child Care Subsidies, Parenting Programs and Employment Services
