Here's what happening...

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 574-328-0808.

In early May 2012 after more than 20 years, The Beaman Home retired its original logo and replaced it with an updated one created by Steve Jones, owner of Communication Designs, Inc.  The new logo was unveiled at Warsaw's May 4th First Friday.  Accompanied by a moving testimonial skit by Beaman Home volunteers, the unveiling is part of Beaman Home's effort to heighten awareness about domestic violence.  Awareness is a key factor in the fight against domestic violence and abuse in our community.
The original logo was shaped like a house with a mother and child inside.  It represented The Beaman Home Shelter and, for years, served the agency well.  Today, however, the Beaman Home is much more than just a shelter for abused women and men and their children seeking to break the cycle of violence in their lives.  For that reason, an updated all-encompassing look for the logo was sought through a recent logo contest.
The new logo reflects the caring embrace of The Beaman Home to domestic violence victims while providing emotional and physical shelter to those who need it.  We're grateful to Steve Jones for his outstanding work!
