The Beaman Home
Beaman Home's Emergency Shelter
Provides temporary shelter, food, clothing, and other basic necessities to domestic violence victims, and their children, who are fleeing their abuser. The Shelter is staffed 24-hours a day, 7-days a week by trained staff and volunteers. While in-shelter, Case Managers and Advocates work with each victim to assist in making necessary steps to gain independence from abuse and violence. Working from a strengths-based approach, daily case management includes assistance with: weekly goal setting, securing housing, navigating the legal system and social service network, job skills, parenting skills, life skills, and much more.
In addition, the Shelter is also the base for our area's local Domestic Violence Crisis Hotline. Each year, trained staff and volunteers provide crisis intervention assistance through hundreds of crisis-related phone calls from victimized families reaching out for help. Without our programs, these calls may have gone unanswered.
