About Us

Our Two-Generation (2Gen) approach provides opportunities and comprehensive resources to empower families to change their life trajectory. This holistic approach includes three main program components:

Safe & Affordable Housing – With safe, consistent and affordable housing, we believe that low-income, single-parent families can break the cycle of poverty and achieve self-sufficiency. Warren Village offers 92 apartments accommodating families of up to six children and one adult. In addition, through our First Step program, we offer one-year transitional, communal living for single mothers.

Early Education & Child Care – For those whose early lives have been marked by poverty, difficulty connecting and trusting can lead to slower social and emotional development, which impacts other areas of development and school readiness. At the nationally accredited United Airlines Early Learning Center, we work with young children of families who reside in our transitional housing program to ensure that exposure to early trauma does not define their paths. Our Learning Center can accommodate as many as 106 children ages 6 weeks to 10 years.

Parent Services & Advocacy – Warren Village provides the resources families need to change and improve their lives. Skilled and dedicated advocates help residents by providing postsecondary education assistance, career exploration and guidance, financial literacy skills, and plans for long-term housing. Additionally, we offer two new programs to Warren Village residents: the Wellness Initiative and the Workforce Partnership Initiative providing our residents with a greater holistic approach to sustaining self-sufficiency.
