How are costs covered?

Rent received from those living at Lucille Raines Residence provides approximately half the cost of the program. United Methodist Women in Indiana provide monthly support. Additional funds are received through Conference Advance Specials. United Methodists can give to Lucille Raines Residence through their congregation or directly to the Residence, which is a 501 (c) 3 corporation; all contributions are tax deductible.

The basis of the self-help program is a daily inventory of defects in character and the sharing of these defects with another person. It is suggested that a part of each day be set aside for meditation and prayer — the end result being that one learns to turn his/her life over to God day-by-day. The support that grows out of the sharing forms the community that is the backbone of the program and becomes the strength which enables recovery to occur.

We accept clients through referrals from local counseling services.

Another fund-raising venture is the “Gift to Raines Cards.” This is a great way to remember or honor someone special. The selection of cards includes Birthday, Sympathy, Thinking of You and Christmas Cards. The cards are free for the asking and a donation of at least $5 is requested as a gift to the Raines Residence.  The greeting card portion is sent to the person you want to recognize or celebrate, and then you send the tear-off portion with your monetary gift directly to Raines in the self-addressed envelope.  Contact Laura Smith at 765.649.7204 or email her at
