Hello my name is Malissa Chandler. I am currently a resident at the Marian house. I came from Jessup Prison to the Marian house not knowing what to expect, but since being there I have learned a lot about myself. I am now independent with a job that I enjoy going to everyday. I am learning how to love myself, but most of all how to love others. It’s a blessing to have people in my life today that love and care for me unconditionally. I am no longer afraid to be successful in life, and I owe it all the Marion House and Alternative Directions for all their help in saving my life. God bless you all!
