I was a trustee at ICCH. ICCH closed in 1997 when the Marion County courts stopped referring their Juveniles to ICCH. In an effort to save the county money, they decided to try to rehab the kids at home, surrounded by the very environment that enabled them to get to that point. Greedy and ridiculous. So the courts failed these kids on so many levels.

Because the courts kept the Home pretty full, there were not many private placements. There was no system in place to recruit or market the home. So when the flow of kids stopped - so did the income. There was not enough income to keep it open.

So typical of the lying liberal bullshit that they feed the idiot liberal fuctards.
These lying stories are always up front and center, then weeks later when they are disproven, they are buried by the lame stream media, if reported at all.
So sad that journalism in this country died decades ago. Equally sad is the fact that our government schools have produced a population that is too stupid to think for itself.

I came to ICCH in Ladoga, IN in 1973 and stayed until I graduated from Southmont High School in 1977. My two younger sisters came a year later. In those days each house was known as Unit 1 thru Unit 6. Years later, many years after I and others left, homes were given individual names....Like "Antioch House". We do have a Facebook page that includes many photo's from the 60's and 70's, as well as copies of the monthly newsletters published. Having found success in my career as a writer and fundraiser, I was asked to come back to ICCH to speak with the kids twice (1989 and 1993) and was honorary chairman of their annual Christmas fund drive for one year. The Home became something more than an orphanage in its latter years. Kids no longer went to public schools as it was when my two younger sisters and I knew it to be. They built their own school and it became less of an orphanage and more of a detention center for troubled youth. I know there are many who prefer to forget that time in their life. However, I prefer to think of the more positive times and will always appreciate those houseparents and staff who mentored and influenced happier moments. Our ICCH Facebook page was created to help our fellow Christian brothers and sisters reconnect, share, and strengthen the bond we all once had. There are still many from the late 60's and 70's we are trying to find. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone wanting to take a step back in time when ICCH was still more of an orphange...simply click on the link below and you'll be transferred to our ICCH Facebook page where you'll find a wide variety of photo's of those living at ICCH in the late 60's and throughout the 70's. Thanks to Anita Cole-Prewitt....we have also posted a number of the old ICCH monthly newsletters including two years of the Christmas issues that has family photo's of all from each of the six different ICCH homes. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1623842271408...
