Ultimate Health Family Services started back in 2005 out of necessity to serve the underserved population of families throughout the greater new Orleans area. There was a lack of information on nutrition, education, and health services for people from low socio-economic backgrounds. We decided to take action and help fill this gap.
Throughout our 11 year history we have helped over 400,000 women, infants, and children (WIC). Our services helped enhance the nutrition and the livelihood of the families we have served. If you or someone you are know is in need of our services, please contact us so that we can help serve you.
Who We Serve
What is WIC?

The foods provided may include: infant formula, infant fruits/vegetables and infant cereal, adult cereals low in sugar and high in iron, milk, cheese, juice, eggs, peanut butter or dried beans/peas, whole grains, canned fish and vouchers for fresh fruits and vegetables.
