Year Established

Service Area
Each year, Warren Village serves approximately 145 low income single parent families in the Denver metro area. Residents are primarily single mothers between the ages of 21 and 29 with one child under the age of five. Less than 50% are employed when they arrive and 100% are homeless or unstably housed.

Mission Statement
Warren Village exists so low income, single parent families can achieve sustainable personal and economic self-sufficiency.

About Us
Since 1974, Warren Village has been using a two-generation model to empower low income single parents with the opportunity and resources they need to change their life trajectory. Our holistic approach includes the following three program components:

Transitional 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 93 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments accommodating families of up to six children and one adult.

Early Care and Education
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 Greta Horwitz 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.

Family Services
Warren Village provides the resources families need to change and improve their lives. Skilled and dedicated advocates help residents by providing post-secondary 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.

Fundraising Events: 

Holiday Shop
December 2017
Warren Village will be celebrating the 30th Anniversary Holiday Shop event with over 200 volunteers and 160 resident and alumni families. Thanks to generous gift donations and volunteer hours from the community, we create a heartwarming holiday shop at a nearby church where Warren Village families can choose and wrap gifts to take home.

Volunteer Opportunities: 

Warren Village works with over 1,000 volunteers to provide diverse and robust programming to residents. Warren Village is looking for groups and individuals interested in making an impact in our residents’ lives through these opportunities:

Work with parents: Share your profession, hobbies, and passions with our adult residents by facilitating evening life skills classes or support to our Workforce Partnership Initiative by sharing your career development and job readiness knowledge.
Work with children: Provide safe, quality childcare at Warren Village while parents attend evening life skills classes.
Work with families: Volunteer groups are invited to host Family and Community Nights with Warren Village by providing dinner and activities. These events are fun, energetic, and build a strong sense of community.
