The Beaman Home


With 1 in 4 women experiencing violence in her lifetime, we must provide a welcoming safe haven to help these women begin violence-free lives.
Search your heart and act now to join the campaign to end domestic violence in our community by donating money to support the Beaman Home shelter and services.
We are just beginning a campaign to build a new Emergency Shelter and Outreach Center in Warsaw.  Phone us at 877-725-9363 to find out how you can help!  To view our campaign video, go to Youtube and enter The Beaman Home in the search box.
See more information about our Capital Campaign under "News & Events" on this site.

The Beaman Home is very blessed with a community which is very supportive for our local domestic violence victims.  Often times, victims are literally fleeing for their lives with little more than the clothes on their backs and a hastily packed overnight bag.
Our Basic Needs Center is a donation drop center where donations are sorted and set up into a store where our clients can "shop" for the items they need.

Monday:  2:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Wednesday:  8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Thursday:  10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
All donations must be prearranged for drop-off - NO EXCEPTIONS.  Please call the BNC at 574-267-0182 during BNC operating hours to schedule your donations.
All donated cloth items, such as clothing and bed, bath and kitchen linens, should be clean and free from stains, rips, pet hair or the smell of tobacco smoke.
Clothing items should be new, or nearly new, and in style.  Out-dated fashions are unacceptable.  Families who are re-building their lives need clothes which help them meet goals such as interview clothes, work-appropriate attire and school clothes which won't get the child picked on by classmates.
Undergarmets must be new, preferrably still in their package or with tags still attached.
Dishes should be in sets of at least 4 and in good condition.  Plastic tumblers are preferred over glass.  Chipped or broken dishes are disposed of immediately so please do not include them in your donation.
Kitchen utensils, bakeware and cookware should be in like-new condition.  They should not be Teflon-flaked or rusty, grease covered or warped.
Small kitchen appliances, such as can openers, toasters, microwaves, etc., should be clean and in working condition.
Furniture, large appliances and electronics are only accepted on an "as-needed" basis.  Please contact the BNS to see if there is a family who needs the large item you wish to donate.
Food items must be unopened and donated prior to their "use by" date.
Health regulations require all personal hygiene products, cosmetics and toiletries to be unopened and unexpired.
Because most of the living quarters for families using Beaman Home programs are small, please do not donate decor items, knickknacks or seasonal decorations.
Seamstresses, crocheters and knitters:  Please contact the BNC to inquire about what our current needs are before you invest your time, energy and money in your next project for our families.  We very much appreciate your desire to provide handmade gifts for our families and want to make sure your efforts do not go unused.
