WIC Holiday Closure
WIC will be closed Thursday and Friday, March 29-30, in observance of Good Friday.
WIC offices to be closed July 7-13.
Offices of San Angelo’s Women, Infants and Children, or WIC, program will be closed July 7- 13 as the staff trains on a new software program.
The closures will include the program’s main office downtown and its three satellite locations. WIC clients are encouraged to schedule appointments prior to July 6. WIC plans a light schedule of appointments the week of July 16-19 as staff gains familiarity with the new software.
The software will allow WIC to convert to a paperless system. Among the advantages for clients are they will receive text and email appointment reminders, and client information from other clinics will be accessible to WIC’s staff.
With the conversion to the new system, WIC will not offer any Saturday appointments in July.

WIC (Women, Infants and Children) is a nutrition program that helps pregnant women, new mothers, infants and young children eat well, learn about nutrition and stay healthy. Help with breastfeeding and accessing health care and other needs are also provided to those who qualify. We serve San Angelo-Tom Green County and all six surrounding counties. We also support foster parents or grandparents, single moms or dads, military personnel, and everyone in between.
Pregnant, post-partum and breastfeeding women, along with children up to the age of 5, may apply for WIC. Medicaid, food stamps or TANF may automatically qualify you and/or your children for the WIC program. If you currently do not receive any of these benefits, you may still qualify using your income. The most recent income guidelines are listed below. Call one of our offices to schedule an appointment. At that time, we will provide you all the information you will need to bring with you.
