Accountability and Impact
Warren Village has been in the business of transforming the lives of single parent families for over 40 years. We have done our best to help families get on track —providing a safe home and the guidance, education and training they need to build a stronger future for themselves. We have asked parents in the program to be accountable for their actions and have held ourselves to a high standard of accountability as well. This has never been more true than it is now.
Later in this newsletter, you will hear about a new program we are instituting at Warren Village designed to ensure we are a catalyst for the greatest impact possible for families and children in our care. We don’t just house families, we make a difference in their lives…a difference that is long-lasting and quantifiably better than when they arrived at Warren Village.
The team at Warren Village certainly wants to have an impact for our families, and in truth it seems that almost everyone wants to make a positive difference in the world in some way. I hear that more around year-end than any other time. I also hear that many people worry that their contributions of time and money will not be enough to make an impact. Please know that when you support Warren Village as a volunteer or donor, you do make a very tangible difference for our families.
That makes you an “All-Star” in our book. Speaking of all-stars, you may have seen our social media campaign applauding All-Stars in the community who are making a difference at Warren Village or for other important causes. I encourage you to join the campaign and highlight people who have made a difference in your life or are making the world better for others. Like the “Pay it Forward” movement, we can help elevate the sense of purpose and impact for others around us. Look for details of this campaign on the back of this newsletter and you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
There’s lots of research that proves that people who help others are happier and live longer. I hope that is true for you! I hope that is true for the people around you. Thank you for your role in helping transform the lives of Warren Village families.
All the best,
President and CEO
