CPC WIC co-locates Red Lion clinic with Head Start classrooms

York, Pennsylvania – January 23, 2023

Community Progress Council is pleased to announce it has re-located its Red Lion-based Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program Clinic to Windsor Manor Elementary School, effective November 1, 2022. This strategic move places WIC services in the same location as CPC’s Head Start classrooms in the Red Lion area, as well as Resource Navigators to help families connect with supportive services and one-on-one coaching.

“Intentionally re-designing our service delivery model to co-locate programs and better support our families’ comprehensive needs is a key strategic priority for Community Progress Council,” said Robin Rohrbaugh, President/CEO, Community Progress Council. “This re-location for our WIC clinic will help to reduce barriers our families may experience in accessing services that can empower them toward self-sufficiency.”

Community Progress Council services will be offered at Windsor Manor Elementary School, 2110 Windsor Road, Windsor, PA 17366. The WIC clinic will be open for appointments:
• 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, except
o 2 to 6:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month; and
o 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month
