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.  

Programs are all operating with safeguards in place to protect our community.

Thrift Store:  Donation days are Mondays and Thursdays from 10 AM - 3 PM.  Please drive around the back of the building and ring the thrift store doorbell.  We will have you unload items into our shed.  Shopping days are Tuesday - Friday, 10 AM - 3 PM.  Social distancing and masks are required - NO EXCEPTIONS.  If the door is locked, we are at capacity.  Please wait in your car until another shopper exits.

Senior NutritionWe have seen a 65% increase in meals served compared to February 2020.  With continued requests coming in, we are looking for additional funding to keep up with the demand.  Our seniors are receiving hot meals delivery, with people in more rural areas receiving a combination of hot and frozen meals.  We will begin service to Mercer County residents October 1.

 

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 located on the back side of our building and is open Monday through Thursday from 10 AM - 2 PM.  Please knock and wait behind the cones.   

NO FOOD DONATIONS accepted.

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.  Distribution is done at the schools.

 

Pattee Learning Center:  Tutoring for the 21-22 school year is in person with COVID guidelines in place.

 

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.
