About LRR

Lucille Raines Residence (LRR) is a facility owned and operated by The United Women in Faith of Indiana (formerly The United Methodist Women of Indiana). Many of those living at LRR, are actively engaged in rebuilding their lives from substance abuse. They all share in learning to function independently in day-to-day life. Many are finding Christ to be the source of successful recovery.

Located in downtown Indianapolis, LRR has been around since 1977. It houses up to 49 individuals, recovering from alcohol and drug addiction. LRR’s 12-step recovery process and meetings help residents rebuild their lives and relationships with God. LRR offers a safe, clean and sober environment for residents and the opportunity to work on a “self-help” program.

The History Of Lucille Raines Residence

The founding of The United Methodist Church in 1968 brought together The Methodist and The Evangelical United Brethren Churches. In Indiana six former conferences became two.

In the process of reorganization, the women’s groups discerned enlarging the Esther Hall ministry, a “home away from home” for young women. The Nottingham Court Hotel was purchased and a two level addition built.

Bishop Richard C. Raines was retiring after 20 years as bishop of The Methodist Church in Indiana. Naming the ministry in honor of his wife, Lucille, affirmed appreciation of her service.

Lucille Raines Residence self-help program allows residents to recognize their personal issues and receive help to better themselves. It is suggested that a part of each day be set aside for meditation and prayer.

Since 1977 Lucille Raines has been a home for men and women who are looking to turn their lives around after substance abuse. It is a caring and loving atmosphere that provides the support needed to become healthy again
