I called two weeks ago to make an appointment with the Spaulding county wic department. I was told there were no appointments available and that a manager would be contacting me to make an appointment. I was never contacted. Today, I contacted WIC again, and I was again told there were no available appointments. Even if the appointment is a month away, I would have still liked to make an appointment. I was told that walk-ins were not allowed and basically left with no solutions. What am I supposed to do more to receive help in this situation? I am a single mom and doing everything I know to do.
