Clair Milleman, president of the Atwood Lions Club, presented a $500 check to Beaman Home’s Executive Director Tracie Hodson following her presentation at the Club’s meeting.
A challenge was also issued to other area service clubs to donate to Beaman Home’s new Emergency Shelter and Outreach Center campaign which will feature space for a new children’s program designed to break the generational cycle of domestic violence. The children’s program will include one-on-one mentoring, healthy interactions between child and parent, and relationship-building with other children in the program to help the child cope with the abuse he or she has experienced.
Beaman Home is in the final stages of raising funds necessary to remodel and add a two-story addition to the vacant building the organization has purchased on North Parker Street. Construction is expected to begin on the new campus late this year.
The public’s help is needed to finalize the campaign. Service clubs, businesses and individuals interested in making a contribution or hosting a fund-raising event are asked to contact Hodson at 574-372-3503 or [email protected]
