From that point, Marcia Bailey, former director of the Champaign Economic Partnership (CEP), along with the city began to work with True inspection Servis (TIS) and Orbis to redevelop the existing building and sell the remaining parcels.
All of that hard work has come to fruition in the past few weeks as we saw the Grand Opening of the Community Health and Wellness Partners new facility in the old building and Orbis officially became the owners of the remaining parcels. At the ribbon cutting, guests were treated to a tour of the new facility. They had pictures of various locations that depicted what the original building looked like. A testament to hard work and dedication, and seeing the potential beyond the current reality, the new Johnson's building stands as a shining example of not judging a book, or a city, by its cover.

In these sessions families will grow in their understanding of nourishing their own resilience. Together we will engage in activities that integrate the mind and the body. The experiential nature of the sessions will invite introspection as well as connection with others as a way to foster nourishment and well-being.
This session will help families understand how toxic stress impacts the brain and body and our behavioral patterns. We’ll then put special focus on how we can join one another on the healing journey. In our time together we’ll unpack 5 Core Convictions that support building a trauma-responsive lens in order to address people and situations in a trauma-responsive manner.
