  • "The Adult & Teen Challenge Program has provided Marshall County an asset like no other in the past.  It has been instrumental in my Office's ability to confront the devastating consequences addictions have on our community.  It brings life back to those who are not "criminals" and returns them to the people they once were, honest hardworking members of our neighborhoods.  Chances that were previously unavailable to the citizens of Marshall County."
