The only children's psychiatric hospital in Johnson County, Marillac Center provides a comprehensive range of mental-health services for children up to age 17, including hospitalization, residential treatment, and therapeutic education. To help traumatized or injured youth recuperate, recover, and reclaim their lives, Marillac uses a therapeutic model of care that helps children understand trauma and its impact on them.
Marillac's psychiatric hospital admits youth 24/7, including those in need of emergency assistance to stabilize an unsafe situation. In 2011, the hospital served 1,382 children and their families, and of those who reported suicidal ideation and self-harming behavior upon admission, a 99% decrease in those behaviors was observed upon discharge, according to Marillac's annual report. The organization also runs a residential treatment facility that serves children and adolescents in need of long-term, intensive treatment that cannot be provided in a hospital setting.
The friendly folks at Weldon Cleaners have pursued aqua-free cleaning since 1982 and have been using environmentally friendly GreenEarth products since 2002. GreenEarth's cleaning products replace traditional petroleum-based solvents with liquid silicone, a gentle solution made from sand that has been ground down over millennia by sea urchin sand grinders in Mother Earth's very own sand factory. Rather than attack your garments with harsh petroleum-based products, Weldon will ensure your blouses, slacks, sweaters, sport coats, and skirts are begged their pardon and cleaned as gently as possible (at $6.50 per garment). Rush off to a job interview or business potluck in a freshly pressed, odor-free two-piece suit or dress ($13). Weldon's coat- cleaning service will help you finally eliminate the squash remains that accumulated on your lapel during last year's Great Pumpkin séance (starting at $12).
Over the last 60 years, Tide detergent has become synonymous with freeing even the most delicate fabrics of stains and dirt. Now, Procter & Gamble's iconic household brand has taken its world-renowned stain-busting power on the road. Just as the company re-invented detergent, and successfully lobbied congress to name the ebb and flow of the oceans after it, Tide Dry Cleaners breathes new life into the industry, brainstorming up innovations that have earned the new company a 2012 Edison Award and Hub Magazine's first-ever Ultimate Hub prize.
Tide's practitioners of cleanliness, along with the folks at GreenEarth, hunkered down to design an environmentally friendly dry-cleaning process that harnesses oil-absorbing liquid silicone. The procedure, beyond simply cleaning dirty clothes, refurbishes them, brightening whites and darkening black fabrics. Tide Restore for Colors even smoothes pilling, fuzzy cottons to help faded colors stand out. Each garment—which can be cleaned with an unscented detergent or infused with Tide's light, fresh aroma—gets inspected seven times and spot-cleaned to ensure wardrobes come back spotless, vibrant, and damage-free.
Throwing convenience and speed into the bargain, the shops offer same–day cleaning, 24–hour service pick-up and drop-off service, and double-lane drive–through valet service.
A swarm of sock-footed kids climb up inflatable steps to reach the top of a rainbow-colored slide, sliding down in an orderly fashion before bouncing off and running back for another go. At Jumping Jax, children can safely expend energy with abandon, playing in air-filled structures that cushion them when they fall or work together to stage a production of the Icarus myth. The play arena sports a multitude of attractions including a bounce house with a Twister-board floor and two low-hanging ziplines.
