Mission Statement

Warren Village exists so low-income, single-parent families can achieve sustainable personal and economic self-sufficiency.

Organization History

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.

Testimonials

"I don't know where I would be without Warren Village. I have formed bonds and relationships that are the foundation of my support system. I have been able to break the cycle of homelessness for me and my children, and I will now be able to give them the life that they deserve. I'm not quite where I want to be yet, but I am well on my way."
-Kelly, Alumna (2018)
