Self-Determination Housing & Re-Entry Coach

Southern California | Pronouns: She/Her

Marilyn grew up in Redlands, Southern California. She was tried as an adult at sixteen and served six years before being released in 2015. While inside, she deeply felt the struggle of her fellow siblings inside – the shared histories that resulted in being incarcerated. Once out she found work as a welder but wanted to do work with meaning, wanted to help people out of situations like the ones that she had been in. She joined YWFC in November 2019.
