ommotion on Lutherwood’s campus suddenly erupts as a youngster bursts out
of his dormitory and sprints toward Ritter Avenue. A youth specialist is in hot
pursuit, concern and worry etched into her face. The youngster scoops up a
fallen branch and turns to face his pursuer, striking out at her and cursing. The look on
his face is one of anger, frustration and despair. Despite the threat of physical injury and
the verbal insults, the youth counselor approaches the runaway carefully but lovingly.
She “talks him down” and finally convinces him to drop the stick and return to the
dorm. As she escorts him to his room, she drapes an arm across his shoulders and hugs
him – and he returns her hug. Such encounters are typical for the front line staff caring
for children who act out in a variety of ways. Even as children are healing, they often
lash out at their caregivers with verbal and sometimes physical abuse.
At LCFS, we are blessed to have dedicated staff who, despite the challenges, love
and care for our children no matter what they do or say. Even as we continue to meet
the needs of current Lutherwood residents and their families, this past year has been
filled with changes to our ministries for everyone. Lutheran Child & Family Services and
The Foundation for Lutheran Child & Family Services focused on three specific areas
during 2006:
• The campus construction project and related financing
• Reorganization of the resource development department
• The continued support of the children and families under our care in a
changing environment
The construction project is the most tangible aspect of our efforts. The open-air
feeling and abundance of natural lighting in the new dormitories represent a
much-needed improvement of our facilities. Hopefully these will convey a very positive
physical environment to aid in the healing process for our children. In addition, the
improved design and physical layout will provide more flexibility to meet the
fluctuating needs of our residents.
Phase II of the campus renovation calls for demolition of the Mikolon Family
Center to make way for construction of a new family strengthening center in 2008.
We took this opportunity to move The Sharing Place East from Mikolon to a new
commercial building near Shadeland Avenue and East 10th Street. We also moved the
Community-Based program staff into new offices in the same building.
2006 was also the first year of operating Lutherwood under a new, more
restrictive State contract that required some changes in our operations and accounting

Services. The search for a new Executive Director concluded in December with the
appointment of Mr. Michael Johnson, who will assume his responsibilities in March,
When we look to the future, we anticipate increased restrictions on revenue
combined with the growing needs of our clients. For many years, government sources
(primarily per diem payments for residential care) have provided support for agency
programs and services. Supplemental funding sources include United Way annual
allocations, grants and individual and congregational gifts. To obtain the additional
funding that will be necessary to carry out the mission of the agency and sustain
programs for the future, we must find new sources of revenue. This prompted the
Foundation Board to initiate a very aggressive resource development plan in mid-2006
to create a unified and coherent approach to fundraising. This includes raising money
to support not only the construction project, but also to significantly expand our
endowment for program support. This effort is off to a good start with the hiring of
additional development staff and a goal oriented planning process.
This report reflects the highlights of the activities of the agency as well as
the efforts of the dedicated staff and volunteers who are so important to Lutheran Child
& Family Services’ success in the community. You are our partner in the important
work of providing programs of compassionate care and counsel to enhance the dignity
and quality of life. We thank you for providing the resources we need to serve others in
the name of Christ. Together, we answer God’s call to “care for the least of these.”
Each one should be
careful how he builds.

xcitement began to grow among
children and staff as they watched
the new residential facilities rise
above the mounds of dirt and protective
chain link fence surrounding the campus.
Like construction crews putting the
finishing touches on the new buildings,
youth specialists, counselors and teachers
at Lutherwood add the “finishing touches”
to the lives of the youth and families they
serve. They combine love, consistency and
support with lots of hugs and smiles to
create a strong, secure foundation for life.
• We completed campus-wide
implementation of the “Circle of
Courage” curriculum. This
behavior modification program
emphasizes four foundations
of self worth: mastery,
independence, belonging and
generosity. In this supportive
and nurturing atmosphere,
residents and staff met once a
week to celebrate progress
toward behavior goals, moving
to less restrictive units or
other individual and group
• As a result of the increasing need
for specialized intervention
among sexually maladaptive
youth, several members of the
clinical staff began training
toward certification by
IN-AJSOP, a professional
organization promoting a best
practice model of intervention.
We plan to provide an intensely
monitored program for these
youth in two residential units
designed for their specialized
treatment and care.
• Youth participated in groups
that focused on social skills,
mental health issues and the
“skill-streaming” process, which
uses modeling, role playing,
performance feedback and
homework to help youth develop
competence in dealing with
interpersonal conflicts.
• An average of 90% of
Lutherwood youth improved
their reading scores significantly
through use of the Read 180
program. The computer-based
literacy program takes a four
pronged approach to expanding
reading skills: word recognition,
spelling, comprehension, and
reading fluency. Using the Lexile®
measures (which reflect the
difficulty of a text), Lutherwood
youth met or exceeded their goal
of improving reading scores by
75-100 points per year.

ommunity-Based programs are
designed to provide intervention,
prevention, or material assistance
to clients directly in their homes or within
the community. They include:
• Foster Care/Adoption
• Parenting Education
• Youth Mentoring
• The Sharing Place (East and West)
Lutheran Child & Family Services
contracted with the State of Indiana to
prepare families for licensure as foster
parents in Marion, Montgomery, Putnam,
Boone, Hendricks, Morgan, Henry, Rush
Wayne, Fayette, Union and Franklin
Licensing preparation includes
educating and supporting families in their
efforts to care for children who have
been neglected and abused, need help
adjusting to life changes or have a variety
of emotional or behavior challenges.
Step-by-step, LCFS caseworkers help
families through the application process,
conduct such screenings as criminal/child
protective background checks and personal
references and provide home studies. We
also supply information about the children
and make sure the prospective foster
parents understand the responsibilities of
foster parenting. Many of these families are
relatives who generously step forward to
take care of nieces, nephews or
grandchildren. Children are less
traumatized if they are able to stay with
relatives they know and with whom they
feel comfortable.

Lutheran Child and Family Services
provides home study and post-placement
supervision services to individuals and
families in Indiana who are seeking to
adopt children both domestically and
internationally. Clients are self-referred and
private-pay. They choose LCFS primarily as
a result of:
• Recommendation of an
international adoption agency
• Word of mouth
• Previous experience with LCFS, i.e.
seeking assistance with a second or
third home study
Although most domestic adoption
services lead to infant adoption, the
majority of international adoptions
requiring home studies or post-placement
services involve abandoned children from
Home studies evaluate prospective
adoptive families to assure the safety
and appropriate placement of vulnerable
children. LCFS follows all state laws and
regulations in the provision of services
and is a Licensed Child Placing Agency in
the State of Indiana. All home studies
conducted by the agency are regulated by
the United States Bureau of Citizenship
and Immigration Services (BCIS).
The adoption program faced a
number of challenges.
• Financially, the program continually
evaluated service fees and potential
income to cover the operational
costs of the limited services that are
provided compared to the expense
of highly experienced staff.
• The number of international
adoptions is dropping nation-wide.
This is a result of more stringent
eligibility requirements in some
countries and occasionally, complete
exclusion of outside adoptions.
• Locally, competition is high to
provide home study services for
domestic infant adoption.
Although LCFS has worked to
increase contracts to provide home
studies for private agencies, many of these
organizations have hired their own social
workers to perform this service as a
cost-saving measure.
The average number of cases
(families) served per month was 4.5 for a
total of 50 to 54 per year. Due to the
length of services (anywhere from two
months to two years, depending on the
number of post placement visits required
as well as timing of placement of a child),
many families have ongoing cases.

Mentor Novell Graves helps his young
8-year-old friend with after-school
This 8-week program promotes
personal growth and fosters independence
among parents and caregivers who attend
classes that focus upon:
• Child development
• Stress management
• Bonding and attachment
• Communication
• Family strengths
• Identification of supportive
community resources
Participants’ ability to solve
parenting crises improves as a result of
learning more effective ways to respond to
their children’s behavior.
A $25,000 grant from Citizens Gas
& Coke Utility underwrote the parenting
classes, which are always open to anyone
who is providing care for a child. This
includes not only individuals who attend
voluntarily, but also those referred to the
program by such organizations as the
Marion County Office of Family
and Children, St. Elizabeth’s Coleman
Maternity Home, Chrysalis Academy and
the Indiana Women’s Prison. Participants
are often in the midst of family crises
involving varying degrees of child abuse or
neglect compounded by homelessness,
chemical dependency or mental illness.
The mentoring program is
designed to help Lutherwood children
and teens prepare to live in the
community again. It pairs youth with
adult volunteers who:
• Encourage community
• Share fun and safe activities
• Teach social skills
• Help the child experience the
community as a safe environment
• Work with the child to solve daily
Mentors are encouraged to take the
children into the community where they
can experience such normal everyday
activities as going to the mall, shopping
for groceries, going out to eat or
attending church. By sharing one-on-one
time, mentors give the children the
opportunity to form trusting, positive
relationships, which in turn, boosts
their self-esteem.

Mentoring is provided to children at
Lutherwood as a supplemental, supportive
residential service. Community-Based
program staff administer mentoring services
but staff and program costs associated with
this supportive service are integrated into
Lutherwood's operating budget.
Since it was founded more than
30 years ago, The Sharing Place material
assistance program has become a
well-known and highly respected ministry.
It serves the most vulnerable people in our
community, helping them attain stability
and providing crisis intervention in the
face of personal crises. Its connection to a
faith-based organization makes it unique
among such programs. It also attracts
volunteers who enjoy serving in a caring,
Christian environment, which makes a
direct and positive impact upon the quality
of care given to Sharing Place clients.
Each year, The Sharing Place
expands its partnerships in the community
while serving the steadily increasing
numbers of persons in need. Collaboration
with IARCCA (An Association of Children
and Family Services) and United Way of
Central Indiana helps meet existing state
and local prevention goals. The Sharing
Place works in partnership with Gleaners
Food Bank to provide food supplies to as
many people as possible and donates
surplus material goods and clothing to
other social service and religious
organizations for distribution to their
To make way for the new
construction underway at Lutherwood,
The Sharing Place East moved off campus
in October to a nearby commercial
building. Benefits of the move included
increased public visibility and access as
well as additional space for the clothing
bank, food pantry, donation receiving area
and offices for Community-Based program
staff. It also allowed The Sharing Place to
re-open its thrift store, where proceeds
help support the operational expenses of
the give-away programs.
The Sharing Place program provides
two unique services: “Ready, Set, Learn!”
and triage. “Ready, Set, Learn!” is a back to
school project that provides new school
supplies to youth in kindergarten through
twelfth grade. Triage is a referral service
provided to clients who repeatedly visit
The Sharing Place or who are in
immediate need of resources other than
food and clothing. It includes the
completion of an informal needs
assessment and identification of other
community and government resources
that may be available. Examples of
referrals made for clients include:
housing, employment, stabilization of
domestic violence, medical needs, mental
health services, and day care.
The Sharing Place is located on the
east and west sides of Indianapolis.

Drs. Tom Nottingham (l) and Jim Rasp of Circle City
Chiropractic were among the first to bring food
donations to The Sharing Place new eastside facility.
The special in-gathering resulted in two pick-up
truckloads of food and more than $1,000 in cash
donations for The Sharing Place.
Dr. Nottingham organized the first Circle City
Chiropractic food drive for The Sharing Place in
2001. “I feel called to share my blessings with
others. I also believe in leading by example. I’d love
to show other professionals in the community –
who have the ability to reach other people – that
they can make a difference.”

resources. Their responsibilities included:
• Tutoring students
• Organizing recreational activities
• Designing and managing

• Facilitating trainings for LCFS staff
• Raising awareness of community

• Re-opening the Lutherwood library
• Creating an outdoor classroom
Efforts of the POD Corps members’
resulted in successful programming that
will endure beyond their three-year
tenure on campus. At Lutherwood, the
tremendous impact of POD Corps can be
found in the outdoor classroom and in an
integrated assessment system for
measuring reading level achievements for
the residents/students. Their legacy to The
Sharing Place is the triage program
operated by volunteers, which offers on-site

who visit The Sharing Place repeatedly for
emergency assistance. POD Corps
members laid a foundation for

More than forty travelers visited
Germany in September to follow the
steps of Martin Luther with I-K Synod
Bishop James Stuck and Sven
Schumacher, CEO of the Foundation
for LCFS.
The mission of the
Department is to
create a broader
understanding of the
special mission and
the values of
LCFS and to
secure goodwill,
participation and
private support.
he Foundation for Lutheran Child & Family Services was established as a
distinct entity in 1989 to build an endowment and create a financially secure
future for the agency of Lutheran Child & Family Services. It also holds
Lutherwood Residential Treatment Center & School. In 2006, the Foundation assumed
responsibility for management of all LCFS investments and philanthropic fund raising.
This allows the agency to focus their attention on the important work of caring for
children and families. Sven Schumacher, formerly the Executive Director, was
appointed the Chief Executive Officer for The Foundation and Suzanne Killen, CFRE,
joined the department as the Director of Development.
Our mission was met through a variety of initiatives, programs, and opportunities
that included:
• Receiving a grant of $100,000 from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans to
support “Demystifying Planned Giving: A Special Invitation to Women”, a
comprehensive planned giving program.
• Raising more than $500,000 in additional cash gifts and pledges for the Give
Hope a Home capital and endowment campaign. This included a grant of
$100,000 from the Indianapolis Foundation.
• Receiving a grant of $25,000 from the Community Investment Team of Citizens
Gas & Coke Utility to sponsor our parenting program.
• Launching a special event for women in early November where more than 140
women gathered for a special luncheon at the Indiana Historical Society to
celebrate publication of Common Threads, Uncommon Deeds. The book traces
the personal stories of twenty women who create change through their gifts of
service to Lutheran Child & Family Services.
• Organizing a trip to Germany with Foundation CEO Sven Schumacher and I-K
Synod Bishop James Stuck, who guided more than 40 guests on a journey
following the steps of Martin Luther.
• Completing 80% of phase one of the construction project, comprising more than
32,000 square feet. LCFS was successfully able to utilize all of the $3.6 million
dollars of the United Way/Lilly Endowment Building Grant.
Many friends generously supported our ministries and programs as well as the
Give Hope a Home capital and endowment campaign. As Martin Luther said, “The art
of the giver makes the gift dear and precious.” So it is that each gift of support is not
only dear and precious but vital to accomplishing the crucial work of Lutheran Child
and Family Services.
Members of the Development Team included: (seated, l-r) Jenny
