Fathers can also bring their children to apply for WIC. You may apply for WIC if you are working or unemployed. Check the Income Guidelines Table to see if you are eligible for WIC.

Hello I currently go to the WIC office in Newport News off of Denbigh since the beginning of this year. Last Wednesday night, November 7th, I had my car break down and was unable to drive which left me with no car. On Thursday morning I called and ended up having to leave a message to let them know I could not make it to my appointment due to no car and no ride. I asked them to call me back to reschedule. I did not hear anything from anyone one Friday. On Monday, November 12, I called but no answer, I’m assuming they were closed due to the Holiday. I called Tuesday, November 13, once in the morning and left a message, once after the lunch break, did not leave a message and again around 3:30 and left a message. I did not hear back. I called again today, November 14, in the morning and left another message and did not hear back from anyone. I know things get busy but I don’t understand why no one has reached back out to me. I appreciate all the help that I have been given but I really would like to schedule an appointment so I can get my benefits back. If you could please help me with this situation that would be helpful. Thank you for your time and efforts. chloe.jockson@gmail.com Chloe Jockson
