Clair Milleman, president of the Atwood Lions Club, presented a $500 check to Beaman Home Executive Director Tracie Hodson. 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 a new children's program designed to break the cycle of domestic violence. The 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 experienced abuse. Beaman Home is in the final stages of raising funds necessary to add a two-story addition to the vacant building on North Parker Street.  Construction is expected to begin 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 fundraising event are asked to contact Hodson at 574-372-3503 or tracie@thebeamanhome.org Pictured (L to R) are Hodson and Milleman.
