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.


"Here may Thy concern

for the welfare of all Thy children

in body, mind, and spirit be fulfilled

in the Spirit of love and fellowship!"

food pantry Monmouth IL

In response to the Governor’s actions this weekend, we are taking the following precautionary steps at Jamieson Community Center to ensure that our critical services remain intact.


The thrift store is closed until further notice.


We are not accepting any donations of food, clothing or household goods. Monetary donations are welcome and will be needed.


Our Senior Nutrition program is serving people 60 and older, with all participants receiving meals delivered to their homes.


The food pantry will be open normal hours. We will serve one family at a time and ask that people wait in the car until it is their turn. We are well stocked and encourage families to visit if they don’t have enough food in their home.  The pantry is open Tuesday - Friday from 11:30 -3:30 and is now located in our community room.  Families with children can visit weekly.  People without children in their home may visit twice each month.  PLEASE WAIT IN YOUR CAR UNTIL THE SIGN ON THE DOOR IS GREEN. 


If you have questions, please call us at 309-734-4251. Please follow our Face Book page for further updates.
