Since its inception, the center has remained operational and successful thanks to the generosity of others. Although WICC receives reimbursement from the State of Illinois, other appreciated funding sources include Westminster and other churches, grants, private donations, student co-pays, and board sponsored fundraisers.
A set of dedicated, caring employees meet the requirements of DCFS licensing. Staff members, both part and full-time, are required to pass an extensive background check and obtain hours of in-service education.
With over a 90% high school graduation rate, former WICC moms have gone on to attend post-secondary education institutions and/or secure employment in a variety of fields, including medicine, social work, education and finance/business.
WICC is located on the church’s property at 1420 Moss Avenue in Peoria. Days of operation correspond to the school calendar of the Peoria Public Schools.
“As a newcomer to Westminster (in September of 2014), I’ve found it to be a most welcoming fellowship. I look forward to going to services and events and find the warmth of the congregation to be most helpful to a newcomer to the entire area. I find sermons challenging … music beautiful and well prepared … and a dignity in the worship that is all too lacking in most Protestant congregations. Mix this with an open atmosphere where it is OK to question and still be seen as a good Christian, and I know I’ve found one important ‘home’ in Central Illinois.”
