Why is Fresno EOC WIC a Safe Place? “Fresno EOC WIC is thrilled to partner with Safe Place. We recognized a need to help our young families know what the Safe Place sign means so from very early in life, children and their families will know where to go to feel safe.”
About Fresno EOC Women, Infants and Children (WIC)
Established in 1975, WIC provides supplemental, nutritious foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and referrals to health care and other services to women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, postpartum and children under 5 years old with low to medium household income. WIC is not just for moms! Dads, foster parents, and guardians are able to sign up qualifying children as well. WIC is based on the premise that early intervention programs during critical times of growth and development can help prevent future medical and developmental problems. Fresno EOC WIC currently operates 5 WIC sites in Fresno and Clovis and offers additional resources like Dads Boot Camps, Baby Showers, Moms groups, and more. For more information about our program please visit www.FresnoEOC.org/wic.
What is Safe Place?
Safe Place is a youth outreach program that connects businesses and volunteers to provide immediate help and safety to youth facing abuse, neglect, bullying, serious family struggles, homelessness and more. The goal of Safe Place is to offer immediate help to any youth in crisis. As youth enter a designated Safe Place location and ask for help, trained volunteers connect them to appropriate assistance.

Safe Place in Fresno
In partnership with National Safe Place Network, Fresno EOC Sanctuary and Youth Services has operated the Safe Place program locally for 21 years. In Fresno, Safe Place consists of a network of 300+ Safe Place sites at school campuses, businesses, community buildings, and transit system – such as Fresno Unified School District schools, city parks, community centers, Wal-Mart, Boys & Girls Club, convenience stores, and Fresno Area Express (FAX) and Clovis Transit buses – all of whom display black and yellow Safe Place signs. Youth are then transported to the Fresno EOC Sanctuary Youth Shelter. Additional information can be found at http://www.FresnoEOC.org/safe-place.
