Family Services

Warren Village’s support services are the heart of our program. It’s how we make sure the single parents and children we serve develop the skills they need to change and improve their lives. To nurture personal development, we provide a full spectrum of support.  To remain in the program, residents are expected to demonstrate consistent progress toward personal and economic self-sufficiency goals that include working or attending school full-time, attending life-skills classes and volunteering.

Family Advocates – By building trust, listening to concerns, providing support and encouragement and helping problem-solve, our family advocates establish ongoing, personal relationships with our residents. Family advocates provide support in the following areas:

Career and education development and opportunities (Discover more about our innovative College-to-Career program!)

• Leadership, personal growth and other enrichment activities

• Financial growth and independence

Community Support Warren Village is not just a place to live – it’s a community of single parent families.  We also have a very active Alumni Association made up of former residents who continue to stay involved and give back to the program.

Children’s Programs Special enrichment activities for school-age kids in their own designated Kids’ Club space while younger children participate in age-appropriate activities through evening child care provided while their parents attend evening life skills classes.

Family Services Community Room – A welcoming community space, this room features a food pantry and computer lab for residents.
