Sunflower Kids supports, empowers, and strengthens adult and child survivors of domestic violence by collaborating with central Kentucky agencies to provide safe, supervised visitation services. The organization works toward a vision of diverse communities free of violence, where all individuals are safe and treated with the respect they deserve. True to this inclusive mission, Sunflower Kids recognizes that the abused partner is not always female and that families experiencing domestic violence are not always heterosexual. For the safety of adults and children, visits take place at Sunflower Kids' secure facility, which has a number of security measures in place, such as staggered arrival and departure times and separate entrances and exits. A visitation monitor stays in the room during each session to observe interactions between the child and the parent who poses the safety concern, making sure the child is both physically and emotionally safe.
Reagan loved her job at Club Libby Lu, where girls were treated to makeovers, dress-up sessions, and dance parties. When the store closed its doors in 2009, Reagan founded Go Girl Parties so that she could continue doing what she loved. Today, she and her close friends visit homes to set up and host kids' makeover parties, where crafts, games, treat bags, and costumes are staples. When soirees are over and cakes have been reduced to crumbs, the team clears all evidence of the bash, tidying up and taking their beauty products back to Go Girl HQ.

Fixing a computer can be a befuddling process, but not for the experts at Techknows PC Repair. The team draws on extensive, up-to-date training to rid computers of viruses, reinstall operating systems, or repair malfunctioning parts, such as jacks and screens. That knowhow extends to plenty of other electricity-powered machinery, too, from televisions and cameras to printers and radios.
For clients who only suspect something's amiss with their PC or Mac, Techknows' team runs complementary diagnostics, which determine what's wrong and how much it will cost to fix. If patrons decide not to repair their item, Techknows returns it free of charge.
All day long at Poochies Plus, four-legged friends, separated by size, frolic freely in cage-less indoor and outdoor play areas. Dogs new to the scene meet with a staff member for 20 minutes to discern play style as well as favorite foods. Then, they're shuffled into play lots where they can splash in kiddie pools, gnaw on chew toys, or chase balls tossed by animal-loving staff members. In addition, overnight guests enjoy bedding in their own sleep space so they don't disturb others when rehearsing dramatic soliloquies from Lassie.
