COVID-19 Information and Resources

The COVID-19 pandemic is evolving each day, please check back for updates!

Collaboration and resiliency are hallmarks of the Warren Village community, including our many supporters.

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic evolves each day. We want our community to know that we are actively monitoring state and local guidance and acting to ensure continued support to our families. We cannot control this rapidly changing environment, but we maintain a laser-like focus on our families and ensure frequent and clear communication with them, and with you—our amazing supporters. We do not know what lies ahead, but we do know that the strength of our community and our core values will guide us in these uncertain times.

Remote not Removed

While our teams may be remote, our top priority remains the health and well-being of our resident families while addressing their emerging needs. Low-income, single parents living at Warren Village typically don’t have access to paid family leave, health insurance, child care, and other resources. Our families are more likely to be severely impacted during this public health crisis, so we are doing everything possible to adjust our program delivery and meet our families where they are with what they need.

We are doing our very best to prepare for the uncertain weeks and months ahead and will update you as our response evolves. Together, we will weather this crisis. With your help, our residents will continue to receive the support and opportunity that have been the cornerstones of the Warren Village model for 46 years.

With hope and gratitude,

Ethan Hemming
President & CEO
