Our emergency shelter provides a temporary safe haven, food, clothing, and other basic necessities to domestic violence victims, and their children, who are fleeing their abuser. The Shelter and the DV Crisis Hotline is staffed 24-hours a day, 7-days a week by trained staff and volunteers. While in-shelter, our advocates make sure all immediate needs are met, work on social and life skills necessary to gain independence from abuse and violence and refer individuals for additional Beaman services or other human service organizations.
The Beaman Advocacy team works from a strengths-based approach, individual and family case management with residential and outreach participants include assistance with: weekly goal setting, securing housing, navigating the legal system, school system and social service network, job skills, parenting skills, life skills, and much more.
We also promote healthy relationships and dating violence awareness to educators, students and interested community members.
Transitional Housing and Rapid Rehousing services assists victims on their journey to self-sufficiency and survival on their own. Transitional Housing is currently funded privately and Rapid ReHousing is funded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), this program allows us to assist victimized families secure housing, limited rental assistance, and other basic necessities needed to set up a stable home, free from abuse, for their family.
The thrift store benefitting Beaman offers a centralized location for our donors to donate in-kind goods including clothing, personal care items, household items, and food; and for our program participants to be able to access the goods which have been donated. In-kind donations are received at MAP, and a crew of volunteers sort, inventory, and organize the items received. The volunteers then stock the shelves of the “store” portion of MAP. When in need, past and current program participants are able to come “shop” for free. Many times, when setting up a new home, our families need small household items and emergency food supplies. These items are also available through MAP, thanks to the community’s generosity.
