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.
“Casual elegance:” those are the two words Margie Fagan’s clients often use to describe the eponymous designer’s work. Since 1985, Margie and her crew have refurbished homes, earning praise from publications such as Better Homes & Gardens along the way. Whether she’s building floor plans from scratch or adding finishing touches to a nearly perfect room, each and every one of the designer’s project’s begins with a consultation—or, more accurately, a Q&A session—in which she’ll determine how the space will be used, what you envision for the space, and your thoughts on Buzz Lightyear wallpaper. From there, Margie will draft floor plans and sketches, present the design to the homeowners, and, finally, bring the agreed-upon work to life.
Beyond transforming houses into homes, Margie also helps clients sell their houses with home staging—a process that can increase the price and speed at which a home is sold.
