The Beaman Home Emergency Shelter

The Emergency Shelter, more commonly known as The Beaman Home, provides a 24-hour Domestic Violence Crisis Hotline and a safe haven for victims who are fleeing the abuse they suffer at the hands of someone who professes to love them.  Because violence knows no time, the Shelter is staffed 24-hours a day, 7-days a week by trained staff and volunteers, who are available to help any time they are needed.  Upon entering the Shelter victims, and their dependent children, are provided with temporary safe shelter, food, clothing, and other basic necessities.  While in-shelter, Case Managers and Shelter Advocates work with each victim to assist her in making necessary steps to gain independence from abuse and violence.  Working from a strengths-based approach, daily case management includes assistance with: goal setting, navigating the legal system and social service network, job skills, parenting skills, life skills, and much more.

In addition, the Shelter is also the base for our area’s local Domestic Violence Crisis Hotline. Each year, trained staff and volunteers provide crisis intervention assistance through hundreds of crisis-related phone calls from victimized families reaching out for help. Without our programs, these calls may have gone unanswered.

The Emergency Shelter is located in Warsaw, IN providing services to victims living in Kosciusko County, Marshall County, and Fulton County.

Beaman Home’s DoVE Outreach Program is designed to help domestic violence victims who do not require the emergency shelter program. These may be victims who are still with their abuser or survivors who have left their abusive situation and are re-building their lives. Our Outreach Advocates provide individualized case management services and encouraging support to nonresidential clients, and their children. In addition to providing guidance and a shoulder to lean on, the Outreach Advocates provide assistance with filing protective orders, creating safety plans, setting goals, and community referrals. They also connect them to appropriate Beaman Home programs and provide assistance with life skills training and in attaining food, personal care, and household supplies, as needed. The Advocates help families set goals (short- and long-term), and hold them accountable for following through, in order to help them re-establish their lives, violence-free.

Outreach Advocates have regular hours at satellite locations throughout Marshall and Fulton Counties.

Every week, the Outreach Advocates facilitate the Incarcerated Women’s Support Group at the Kosciusko County Jail and participate in Kosciusko County Drug Court.

In addition to victim’s advocacy, the DoVE Outreach Program also seeks to reduce the occurrence of domestic violence in the communities we serve by providing educational opportunities on a variety of DV-related topics. These topics include: Teen Dating Violence, Workplace Violence, Advocacy Training, General Awareness Presentations, and more.

Beaman Home’s Rapid Re-Housing Program assists homeless domestic violence victims staying in Beaman Home’s Emergency Shelter (or our sister shelter, Heminger House, in Plymouth) secure permanent housing to rebuild life after fleeing their abuser. The program is funded primarily by US Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which provides funding for rental assistance and limited funding for case management and supportive services. The Rapid Re-Housing Program provides program participants with the upfront costs associated with securing housing (1st & last months' rent, security deposits, utility deposits, etc.). Income qualified participants may also receive up to 12 months of rental assistance. All participants may receive up to 12 months of case management with the primary focus on helping the program participant/family become self-sufficient and maintain permanent housing.

The Basic Needs Center offers a centralized location for our donors to donate in-kind goods including clothing, personal care items, household items, and food; and for our clients to be able to choose the items they need and make sure clothing items fit before taking them home.  In-kind donations are received at the Center and a crew of volunteers sort, inventory, and organize the items received.  The volunteers then stock the shelves of the “store” portion of the Center.  When in need, past and current clients are able to come into the Center and “shop” for free.  They are able to choose the styles, colors, and sizes which suit them.  Thanks to the variety of items received, clients are able to choose from casual clothes, work-appropriate clothes, outerwear, jewelry and more.  Many times, when setting up a new home, our clients need small household items and emergency food supplies.  These items are also available through the Basic Needs Center, thanks to the community’s generosity.

The Life Skills Program provides classes, workshops, and other educational opportunities focused on providing information and skills needed to become independent, self-sufficient, and assist in rebuilding life after abuse. Topics range from necessary skills (budgeting, basic home management and maintenance, basic vehicle maintenance, employment skills, etc.) to interpersonal skills (effective communication, DV awareness, support groups) to self-care (meditation, yoga, recreational activities, etc.). Our Life Skills Program Manager is also a certified Recovery Coach to assist individuals who suffer from substance disorders, and a certified Sexual Assault Advocate to assist victims of sexual abuse.

SYNC Up! Children's Program provides individualized services for the children who enter Beaman Home programs with their abused parent or guardian. Each child receives a trauma screening and assessment designed to identify what the child has experienced and case plans for both the child and the family unit are created based on the results. Children receive one-on-one case management, age-appropriate activities supporting the child's 40 developmental assets, and lots of loving attention from staff and volunteers.

Understanding the critical role of having active parent participation, SYNC Up! advocates provide parenting classes as well as work one-on-one with each parent to help them support their child's development in building resiliency skills, effective coping mechanisms, and overcoming the trauma they experienced as a witness to, and/or victim of, family violence.

The BeCome Counseling Program provides critical mental health counseling to DV survivors to assist them in overcoming the emotional and mental trauma they experienced while living with an abusive person.
