About Us

Warren Village is a Colorado nonprofit serving unhoused and unstably housed low-income single-parent families in the Denver area. We provide families with the space and resources to achieve economic mobility and navigate and disrupt systems of poverty. Warren Village utilizes a 2Gen approach to empower both parents and their children through life skills classes, a high-quality Early Learning Center, education and career support, and resource navigation. Warren Village currently serves families at three locations: our main building on Gilpin; Ivy Crossing Apartments, a satellite location in partnership with BLDG that provides resources to residents who live there; and First Step, a residential communal living space for teen mothers and their children attending high school at Florence Crittenton Services.

Located in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, Warren Village was established in 1974 when citizens and business professionals saw an influx in the number of single-parent families struggling to subsist. These community members wanted to build a program that would give these families a chance at economic independence.

One of those community members was Dr. Myron Waddell, a physician who worked in Denver’s inner city during the 1960s. Along with others in the community, he conceived Warren Village after observing an increasing number of single-parent families and accompanying high rates of poverty, family violence and housing instability. An active member of Warren United Methodist Church, Dr. Waddell envisioned an “intentional community” of single-parent families who could live in a safe and decent temporary home while working toward self-sufficiency. Over a period of nearly ten years, Warren Church bought eight plots of land, razed the existing buildings, and donated the land for the creation of an urban village – Warren Village.
