A NEW BEAMAN HOME FACILITY PLANNED!
The Beaman Home Shelter and its outreach services have been located in a donated 1800 sq
ft single-family home since 1985 when it was founded by Altrusa International of Warsaw. When it opened, there
was a client waiting on the porch...and it has never been empty since!
The Shelter has 13 beds squeezed into 3 bedrooms. The past several months an
average of 27 individuals have been housed monthly in the home filling it to capacity.
Meal times are challenging at best in the small eat-in kitchen and it is nearly impossible to
consult privately with victims when the Shelter is full.
In an effort to alleviate the crowding and consolidate our three separate sites in Warsaw, the
Beaman Home Board has purchased an existing vacant property on North Parker Street in Warsaw. We plan to renovate
the existing structure and build a two-story addition to house both residential and non-residential outreach client services.
The plans for the residential area include 10 private bedrooms (40 bed capacity) which more
than triples our existing facility's capacity. We'll also include a large commercial-grade kitchen with separate dining
area, several living room spaces, a Children's Activities Center, laundry facilities and private consultation rooms.
We are conducting a campaign to fund the building of our new Emergency Shelter and Outreach
Center. If you can help by becoming a volunteer for the campaign, hosting a campaign event to help us further tell our
story or by thoughtfully making a gift commitment, please contact our Executive Director, Tracie Hodson, at 574-269-3044 or
