Shout Out From A Patron
Helping People Succeed

"I am contacting you in regards to a couple of employees that are working at the UAACOG WIC Cañon City, Colorado location. I have been a WIC member since 2020. I am pleased to inform you that I couldn't have asked for better care while being a member with your organization located in Cañon City.

Jessica Rathke was my case manager during the time being and was beyond amazing. During a pandemic and feeling disconnected from the rest of the world, she made you feel otherwise. She has always shown amazing empathy and care. She made me feel connected even with the distance that has been enforced. She goes above and beyond and had so much wisdom to offer me during our WIC meetings. I feel truly blessed to have met such an amazing woman.

Julie Peek has also been an employee that when needing assistance she dealt with my questions/concerns with care and consideration. I couldn't be happier with these ladies that are providing time and effort for us mom's and our little ones that are in need of assistance!"
