Tulsa nonprofit Emergency Infant Services expanding program during government shutdown

TULSA - Struggling Tulsa mothers impacted by the federal shutdown can take comfort in the expanded services of a local nonprofit. 

Emergency Infant Services, an organization focused on providing vital needs like food, formula, milk and diapers to young mothers, is allowing women to come once a month during the shutdown, as opposed to its standard of four times a year.

EIS offers the service for newborns to the time children are five years old -- the period executive director Tom Taylor says is most important for proper brain function and development.

Taylor says new mothers not on WIC, a federally supported supplemental nutrition program, can still come to the facility, but must bring a photo ID.
