Living in poverty and homelessness is not only stressful but can result in feelings of fear, hopelessness, and prioritization of daily survival over long-term planning. Warren Village’s goal is to help low-income, single-parent families make the journey from poverty to self-sufficiency.
Utilizing a Two-Generation (2Gen) approach, Warren Village empowers disadvantaged single parents to regain self-esteem, reconnect to the community, and ultimately reclaim a productive place in the community.
Warren Village is the nationally recognized leader for moving people from poverty toward self-sufficiency.
We are committed to diversity in all its forms and value individual perspectives and contributions. We create an environment of inclusiveness in which all feel valued and heard.

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 homelessness. 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.
Warren Village is comprised of passionately committed individuals who work to empower low-income, single-parent families to make the journey from poverty to self-sufficiency.
We welcome creative, critical thinkers who are not restricted by convention. We welcome candidates who bring ideas to the table, energy to the team and a sense of humor. We welcome team players who want to change the world, starting at Warren Village.
