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.
“Throughout the week, there are many worldly things pulling me away from my commitment to God. I come to church on Sunday at Westminster to reconnect and renew my relationship with Him. Part of my worship is to ask him for forgiveness for my lack of faithfulness. I leave, reminded that he loves me, forgives me, and walks beside me every day. What a profound blessing that is!”
