Bachus & Schanker, LLC is pleased to be a sponsor of the upcoming 2011 All Star Breakfast to benefit Warren Village. This will raise funds to help assist low-income, single parent families caught in a cycle of poverty, homelessness and despair. Bachus & Schanker, LLC Cares Foundation is committed to helping those in our community affected by life changing tragedies.
The 11th annual breakfast will raise necessary funds for Warren Village, a unique family community helping motivated low-income, previously homeless single-parent families move from the public assistance to personal and economic self-sufficiency through subsidized housing, on-site nationally accredited child care, intensive case management, educational guidance and career development. Since its inception in 1974, Warren Village has assisted over 3,650 single-parent families move to self-sufficiency.

The All Star Breakfast is being coordinated by Friends of Warren Village, a group of dedicated volunteers who serve as ambassadors through volunteerism and fundraising efforts on behalf of Warren Village. The keynote speaker at this year’s breakfast will be Coach Dick Vermeil. Coach Vermeil had one of the most distinguished coaching careers in NFL history with 15 seasons as an NFL coach for both the St. Louis Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Bachus & Schanker, LLC is proud to partner with Warren Village to help those who need it most in our community.
About Warren Village
Warren Village opened its doors in February 1974 as a private nonprofit organization. The vision was to create a well-rounded program consisting of safe housing, family services and early-childhood education. Today, Warren Village is a nationally recognized, award-winning program that transforms homeless families as they chart a new path toward success, health and prosperity.
Warren Village resident parents are primarily women between the ages of 21 and 29, with one to six children under the age of five. Most have been victims of domestic abuse, violence or crime. Right now, 74% of families moving into Warren Village have an estimated income between $2,000 and $6,000 at time of entrance.
The Warren Village housing program provides affordable and safe apartments that accommodate one-parent families, with a maximum of six children for a maximum two-year stay. It is directly linked with resident requirements, support services and the Learning Center. In this context, residents work directly with their child’s teacher, developing effective teacher/parent communications thus enhancing their child’s education.
The Family Services department provides comprehensive case management, vocational assessment, evening life-skills classes and health care information and services and resident-initiated leadership opportunities. Evening education focuses on child development, creating positive parent/child relationships, implementing effective discipline, financial management and steps towards home ownership.
The nationally accredited Warren Village Learning Center is accredited through the National Association for the Education of Young Children and is a licensed child care facility that accommodates up to 135 children on a daily basis. The center provides three healthy meals per day for each attending child.
The Healthy Families Initiative coordinates volunteer teams of medical, dental, and support personnel that provide a full range of health services to medically uninsured, single parent families.
