- 8 GdlesbufQ Register-Moil, Galesburg, III. Wednesday; Aug, 1, 1973 Committee Eyes Methods Of Funding New Center MONMOUTH — A community day care committee, organized about 18 months ago at the request of the Warren County Mu man Resources Committee, has been studying the possibilities of establishing a day care center in Monmouth. The committee has decided ,that the best location for the center would be at the community building at Lincoln Homes The facility is large enough for 25 children, meets state day care requirements, and is available rent-free providing that 51 per cent of the children in the program come from the public housing project. The projected day care center will operate from 6 a.m. to 6 pan. five days a week, 12 months a year. It will serve children 2V2 years old through kindergarten, whose families will be given priority on the basis of need. The staff will consist of a director-child care worker, a second child-care worker, two assistant child-care workers, and part time employes such as a cook, nurse and custodian. Volunteers will be used as the program develops under the leadership of the director. The day care center will cooperate with other public and private agencies in the area in providing services to meet the needs of the day care families. Last February, the committee submitted a proposal for a grant from the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. This would have provided three federal dollars for every state dollar spent so that expenses would have been covered on a federal-state ration of 75-25 per cent. The committee has been informed, however, that, because of budget cuts to the Department of Children and Family Services, no new centers can be funded. The committee is now considering the following options: —Drop the ideas as not viable. The committee feels this is unrealistic. MONMOUTH Correspondent Mrs. Lorraine Stauth For News 112 S. 10th St. Phone 734-4721 For Missed Copies Before 6 P. M. Phone 734-4)21 —Find $38,178 locally to fund the center. —Engage in a local effort program to raise 25 per cent of the budget in cash. This would enable the Department of Chil dren and Family Services to apply for a federal grant to cover the other 75 per cent. The committee considers the option of local funding feasible. Rev. David Nicholson, chairman of the committee, explained: "We feel it is important to note that if the center can be opened, it can provide a means by which parents of families on erleral assistance can see that their children are cared for while they work or enter job training and thus take themselves off the welfare rolls." He sa'd the committee members have had contact with several families who have stated this as their situation. Other members of the committee are Mrs. Cynthia Waltershausen, Mrs. Lila Blum, Mrs. Rose Marie Smith, Mrs. Betty Scales, Mrs. Margaret Bank, Mrs. Rose Youngquist, Mrs. Christine Kermey and Rev. David R. Preininger, executive director of Jamieson Community Center.
