Rauch, Inc. and the Rauch Foundation, which ensures that programming for those with disabilities is available in the years to come, are both 501(c)3 not-for-profit organizations. Rauch's funding comes from a variety of sources, including annual membership giving, honorary and memorial gifts, foundation and corporate grants, planned gifts, in-kind donations and special events such as the Imagine Awards and Golf Scramble.
Rauch was founded in 1953 by a group of concerned parents who wanted their children with developmental disabilities to receive a quality education. Their school, which began in a church basement with a volunteer teacher, was the first school for children with disabilities in the State of Indiana.
Today, Rauch provides an array of services which help people with disabilities in Southern Indiana live full and meaningful lives. From preschool, early intervention therapy, and summer camp for children to a sheltered workshop, job placement, housing, day programs, and an art studio for adults, our programs are aimed at achieving our mission: to support people with disabilities and their families while encouraging a community that acknowledges the value and contribution of all people.
