How many times can I receive services?

EIS helps families up to four times a year.  Visits must be at least two weeks apart.

What do I need?
  1. Photo ID for the Parent
  2. Form of identification with the name and date of birth of each child receiving assistance. Acceptable forms include the following:
    • Birth Certificates
    • Foot prints from the hospital
    • Shot records
    • Passports or other forms of identification from other countries with the Date of Birth on it.

    WE CANNOT TAKE SOCIAL SECURITY CARDS BECAUSE THEY DO NOT INCLUDE THE DATE OF BIRTH.

  3. Proof of Custody if you are not the birth parent. You need current custody to receive service.
  4. If you are pregnant, you must provide proof of pregnancy with due date. We do not accept ultrasounds.
Do I need an appointment?

No appointment is necessary. EIS is a walk-in only agency. To receive our services, simply bring your required documents and come to one of our locations during our open hours. All visits are on a first come, first serve basis.

What if my baby needs a specialty formula?

EIS provides generic formula. If your child needs a name brand formula or specialty formula, a doctor’s note is required.

What can I get If I’m pregnant?

For pregnant women, we only offer groceries and maternity clothing. Unfortunately, we cannot offer any baby items until after you give birth. A visit as a pregnant woman will count towards your four basic needs visits per year.

Do I need to bring my child with me?

No. We do not require you to bring your children. However, you must bring documentation with the children’s name and date of birth on it.

If you have other questions that are not answered here, please call EIS at 918-582-2469.
