212 Gives Back – John Swanson

I’m donating to the Beaman Home because I have seen the results of domestic abuse firsthand. These abusive relationships shake families to the core. Not only are the immediate victims affected, but their children are forced to grow up in terrifying environments. Whether it is physical or verbal abuse, the effects alter lives forever.


The Beaman Home offers a safe environment for the victims, and also offer housing for children that are a part of abusive relationships. The Beaman Home helps each victim begin the road to independence from the relationship. I appreciate that they provide more than just a safe space. They provide support to the victims and work to get them back on their feet.
