Instilling Change: Marlon Suttington

Marlon Suttington is the picture of a family man. I met him in his apartment, where he was with his young stepson and his newborn. While we talked, he cradled his newborn son in his arm, sitting on a couch covered in baby blankets. We talked over the sounds of his other child watching a children’s show in the background. He told me about cooking for his family and about his kids loving his creations in the kitchen. Everything he’s done, Marlon told me, has been for his children. In the past, that meant selling drugs. Today, with the help of Second Chance, he has new and better ways to provide for his family.
