Our Mission & Vision
Jamieson Community Center's mission is to coordinate programs addressing the needs of all ages, provide services which extend widely into the community and surrounding area, and work in cooperation with the social service agencies in the region.
Our vision is that Jamieson Community Center leads a collaborative effort to unify people through compassion, kindness and service.
We are a non-profit community center that strives to provide social services to Monmouth and the surrounding areas. We were founded in 1965 following the merging of four area churches.
JCC is named after Rev. Jamieson who was responsible for the vision of Jamieson Community Center and was one of our early founders.

COVID -19 Update
JCC is following all CDC and IDPH guidelines. Cloth Masks are required for staff and visitors. We also work with our local health department to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers, and the people we serve.
Current programs are all operating with safeguards in place to protect our community.
Thrift Store: We are open again! New guidelines for donations and shopping
Senior Nutrition: We have seen a 65% increase in meals served compared to February. With continued requests coming in, we are looking for additional funding to keep up with the demand. Our seniors are receiving hot meal delivery, with people in more rural areas receiving a combination of hot and frozen meals.
Food Pantry: Families with children can come to the pantry weekly and people without children can come twice each month. We are also delivering food boxes and supplies in Warren County to people 65 and older or to people who are quarantining due to health issues, including people who have tested positive for Covid-19. The food pantry is currently located on the south end of the building and is open Monday through Thursday from 10 AM - 2 PM. Please knock and wait behind the cones.
Weekend Meals: In partnership with Monmouth Roseville School District and River Bend Food Bank, shelf-stable meals for the weekends are available to elementary students. Our distribution will look a little different due to remote learning, but area children will be served.
Pattee Learning Center: Children are on a staggered schedule for tutoring. They are THRILLED to be back in person.
Emergency Bill Pay: We have multiple resources to help area residents with bills and expenses. Applications are completed by phone. Call our office for more information. 309-734-4251.
Updates will be made on our Face Book page, Jamieson Community Center. If you have questions, call us at 309-734-4251.
