The Beaman Home
Programs & Services

Many people do not realize that The Beaman Home can help domestic violence (DV) victims even if they do not need or want to enter The Beaman Home's emergency shelter program.

DoVE Outreach Services

Beaman Home’s DoVE Outreach Program was started in July 2010 to offer educational opportunities to the community and to help domestic violence victims who don’t need/want to enter the shelter.  Today, DoVE offers the community a wide variety of services.

 

Outreach to Victims

In the less than 2 years, the DoVE Outreach Program has assisted 156 women and children with danger assessments, safety planning, and self sufficiency skills as part of the case management offered to victims who do not need/want to enter the Shelter.

 

Healthy Relationships

for Teens

Teen dating violence is a rising issue among teenagers, as 1 in 3 teens report experiencing abuse in a dating relationship. During the 2011– 2012 school year, DoVE worked with  Warsaw Community Schools to educated nearly 200 middle school students about healthy relationships, appropriate cell phone use and internet safety.

 

Survivor Support Groups

Beyond Trauma is a support group for women and men that have been victims of Domestic Violence. The post traumatic stress associated with the effects of domestic violence as well as coping skills are often important topics discussed at these groups.

Incarcerated Women

Support Group

Many of the women in our local jail have been victims of or have experienced second-hand trauma associated with domestic violence. Each week, the DoVE Outreach Program provides an educational group to help female inmates set goals, discuss parenting issues, and deal with past events in their lives.

 

 

Specialized Training

“Cut It Out” Training

Oftentimes, an abuser will physically abuse somebody where it cannot be seen. Hair may be pulled out and bruises on the head may go unseen. “Cut It Out” training helps beauticians and salon owners recognize warning signs and safely refer their clients to available resources.

 

Workplace Violence Training

Protecting yourself while at work can be a hot button topic among employers and employees alike. Our workplace violence training can be extremely helpful to individuals who may be experiencing violence within their homes. Simply hearing somebody talk about a situation they have experienced may allow an individual to feel comfortable enough to get the help they need and thereby avert a possible tragedy at work.

 

The DoVE Outreach Program is an essential educational tool in the fight against domestic violence.  To learn more, call April, Outreach Coordinator, at 574-267-3044.

Shelter Services

The Beaman Home provides a safe and supportive environment for domestic violence victims and their children. Because violence never rests, our Crisis Hotline and Shelter are available 24/7.

Individual, peer, and group counseling is available for the abused individual. Referrals to individual and group counseling is available for the abuser as well. Support groups are available on a long-term basis.

Assistance in obtaining employment, a home, clothing and personal care items and more is available for the abused individual.

 

 

Basic Needs Center

 

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.

 

The 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.
