:: Father Warden Education Fund ::

Program Objectives:
Education is viewed by many as a means of breaking the grip of poverty and turning one’s life around. With this in mind the Windsor Homes Coalition Inc. operates the Father Warden Educational Fund, an educational costs support program ear-marked to assist WHCI tenants and their children in furthering their education.

Program Overview:
The Father Warden Education Fund began more than twenty years ago as bursary program funded by an educational trust named after one of the four founders of Windsor Homes Coalition Inc., Father Robert Warden. The original trust was exhausted some years ago and today the program is funded through cash donations earmarked for educational assistance to WHCI tenants.

In order to be eligible to apply for assistance applicants must have been a WHCI tenant for at least one year. Assistance is provided on a per family basis, and can be utilized to cover a variety of specified educational expenses incurred by either children or adult tenants. Eligible educational expenses include application fees, tuition costs, textbook purchases, school supply costs, and other course or program related expenses, including such ancillary educational items as the cost of children’s school uniforms.

To date the Father Warden Education Fund has assisted some 90 students from Windsor Homes Coalition Inc. to pursue higher education and achieve their vocational dreams. Currently about ten to fifteen WHCI tenant families are assisted annually.

Opportunities to Help:
WHCI’s ability to assist tenant families with educational expenses is contingent upon its ability to attract donations of monies from Windsor area businesses, community organizations and concerned individuals. Support levels are currently limited to $200 per family per annum, admittedly a modest amount considering the cost of most programs.

Windsor Homes Coalition Inc. would welcome hearing from any education-minded businesses, community organizations or individuals interested in providing either financial support or other types of assistance to the Father Warden Education Fund. Please contact Tenant Advocate, at 258-4501.
