About Us


Kosciusko County Shelter for Abuse, Inc. (better known as The Beaman Home) was founded by Altrusa International of Warsaw, Club members identified Kosciusko County domestic violence victims had no place to go to make a fresh start when escaping their abusive relationship.  The nearest emergency shelter was over an hour away, and the distance made leaving seem impossible to many victims.  So, with a lot of faith and in a home donated by N. Charlene Bradbury, and the help of community leaders and volunteers, Beaman Home welcomed its first battered woman on July 1, 1985.


Today, trained staff and volunteers annually provide assistance to approximately 350 domestic violence victims from Kosciusko, Marshall, and Fulton Counties.  More than 50% of the victims we serve are children who enter our programs with their abused parent.  Over the years, we have expanded our services to better meet the needs of our community’s victims.  Now, comprehensive domestic violence services include the Beaman Home Emergency Shelter, DoVE Outreach Program, and the Basic Needs Center.


Beaman Home strives to provide quality service when meeting the needs of our community’s victimized families. 

As one of our victims stated, we are “Saving Lives…One Crisis at a Time.”
