The Beaman Home

Welcome to our web site!

When a victim of domestic violence (DV) chooses to leave her abuser, she, and in many cases her children, is walking away from her home and everything familiar.  She is also challenging the power and control her abuser has over her.  This challenge leads to an increased likelihood of violence as the abuser tries to regain control.  It is truly a leap of faith to make the journey from DV victim to DV survivor.
 
It takes COURAGE to leave, HOPE and STRENGTH to overcome challenges along the way, RESPECT for oneself to continue toward EMPOWERMENT until you believe in your own DIGNITY as a SURVIVOR.
 
Our donors are sponsors of each leg of the journey.

The Beaman Home Empowerment Philosophy
 
Every person has the right to freedom from abuse including but not limited to verbal, emotional, sexual, physical, psychological, distruction of property and/or pets, and the fear of impending violence.
 
Every person has the right to intervention which maintains the person's integrity while insuring the safety and protection of all family members.
 
Every person is capable of change and accepting responsibility for change in his or her own life.
 
Our community has a right to learn that the abuses of power in society foster battering by perpetuating conditions which condone violence against adults and children.
 
Our community has a right to know Kosciusko County Shelter for Abuse, Inc. believes violence against adults and children results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in intimate relationships.  The agency further believes societal/political abuses of power and domination in the form of sexism, facism, homophobia, classism, Anti-Semitism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions are also acts of violence.
 
Empowerment for group purpose means that we, as women, can act more effectively and feel more support when we act together.  Participants find hope and courage from the examples other battered women provide us as we gain resources from the Shelter to rebuild our lives.
