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.
“What goes through your mind as you sit in the sanctuary and look around?
As I sit in my pew and look up at the cross with the wonderful light illuminating it, I am reminded of why I am at Westminster on this particular day. The cross reminds me that Christ died for me and, in a sense, I am to do the same in my daily life. The brightness of the cross illustrates for me the brightness of living my life in the way of Christ.”
