WIC remains open
The City of San Angelo’s Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program remains open for business despite the reconstruction of its parking lot.
Clients may park in front of City Hall, 72 W. College Ave. WIC is in the adjacent Community Development Building at 52 W. College Ave. There is also limited parking on the left-hand side of Gillis Street, which is a one-way north-to-south roadway that runs alongside the Community Development Building.
Construction of the WIC parking lot will continue through April as part of City Auditorium’s renovation.

Juggling work with caring for an infant can be tough. We are pleased to do our part to support working mothers everywhere.
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.
