When I moved to Denver four years ago I wanted to volunteer with an organization that truly made a difference in the lives of women and their children. I had worked with such an organization in my home town and saw, first hand, that providing support, direction, structure and a safe environment to motivated women gives them the strength to retake control of their lives. Warren Village provides all of these elements to residents begining with a clean, safe and modern apartment that is affordable. The apartment is more than a place to live - it offers the resident family an opportunity to be part of a community of support. Resident pre school children have the opportunity to enroll in the onsite 4 Star Qualistar rated Learning Center where they learn and are cared for by a highly trained staff of teachers and volunteers while their parent is working or going to school. Finally, residents work with a family advocate to develop a plan for their stay at Warren Village that includes working or going to school full time with a goal of becoming self sufficient and able to live on their own again. Two keys to Warren Village's success are selecting highly motivated people who are determined to be successful individuals and parents and providing the three elements of housing, child care and family services in a single site community. I have been a member of the Board of Trustees of Warren Village for over three years and continue to be amazed at the quality and dedication of the staff and and the remarakable success stories of the residents and their children. We know that the most important human services organizations are changing lives and saving lives and I believe that Warren Village is doing both - one family at a time.
