Our Program Model
At Warren Village, we understand that homelessness and poverty have far-reaching impacts. The effects radiate from the individual affected to his or her family, friends and the community as a whole. And there is no one more vulnerable than families with children. That’s why we are dedicated to helping low income, single parent families become self-sufficient – and stay that way.
Our comprehensive program is designed to get our clients on solid footing so that when they leave us they’re ready to create sustainable stability for themselves and their families.
Residence at Warren Village is not an entitlement but rather a privilege, earned by progress toward specific personal and economic self-sufficiency goals. Our 93 subsidized apartments can accommodate single-parent families with up to six children.
Our nationally accredited Greta Horwitz Learning Center provides on-site developmental care and licensed early childhood education for up to 106 children ages six weeks to 10 years.
Skilled and dedicated advocates help residents by providing career and education counseling, financial education and plans for long-term housing. Supportive services include life skills classes like parenting, budgeting and job retention skills and an Evening Family Enrichment program for parents and children.
We wouldn’t have the track record we have if it weren’t for the dedication of our clients. Applicants to our program must be committed to making changes in their lives – living at Warren Village is not a handout, it’s a hand up. To remain in the program, they 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.
It’s a great program if you take advantage of all the opportunities. It benefits you for a lifetime.

If not for Warren Village, I would not have been able to complete my education.

Coming from a foreign country I had no family here. Warren Village was more than a family for me.
