“GET INVOLVED” INFO

 

The Beaman Home relies on volunteer help to provide services to victims of domestic violence in the Kosciusko, Fulton and Marshall Counties.  You may be able to help!

 

Remodeling is underway at our new campus located on North Parker Street in Warsaw.  Expansion of our services and programs are planned for the new facility.  The success of those services and programs depends on assistance from many volunteers working with our experienced, professional staff.

 

The Board of Directors has established a committee structure to handle our organization’s programs and responsibilities.  This structure depends heavily on “Friends of Beaman Home Volunteers” to serve on the committees and to assist staff in various ways.  Volunteers with skills in the following areas are encouraged to contact the Executive Director Tracie Hodson at 574-372-3503 or email tracie@thebeamanhome.org.

 

  • HR/Legal – Experienced HR/Legal volunteers will assist with legal and compliance recommendations, HR issues and advice, coordinates periodic staff surveys.

 

  • Facility Maintenance – Volunteers will handle routine facility maintenance and maintain the grounds of the new campus.

 

  • Finance – Volunteers will assist the Executive Director with budgeting, monthy financial reporting, comparisons of performance to budget, etc.

 

  • Marketing – Volunteers will develop, implement and evaluate marketing, community relations and public relations activities including media releases, image promotions, brochures, direct mail documents and social media.
