Thankful for your time and effort

As director of the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center, I see many difficult youths come and go.  Over the years, the male population outnumbered the females three-to-one.  Since 2019, the detention center has tripled the number of female youth and tend to be the most traumatized, hurt, and just plain difficult to work with. It has always been hard to find sufficient programming geared specifically towards the girls, as well as, keeping their attention.  That was the case until Marlisse Hardamon started volunteering her time to come into the facility and speak to the girls. Not only is Marlisse able to provide great faith-based lessons and wisdom, but she is also able to keep the females involved and willing to participate.  I am very thankful for the time and effort Marlisse offers the broken youth of our community by providing faith, healing, and love.

Empowering messgage

Marlisse shared an empowering message with students, staff, and the community about transforming from victimization to survivor-hood. She gave a powerful speech about her experience and how it has impacted her life. Survivors are never at fault and she shared that realization through her recovery. I appreciate her bravery to share her story with others in pursuit to prevent sexual violence and support survivors!”
