FLINT, Mich. - Marseille Allen moved to Flint at what some might consider the worst possible time.
She relocated there in August following a promotion to lead probation agent in the Michigan Department of Corrections' central office in Lansing.
After news of the Flint water crisis broke, Allen could have decided to leave. Instead, she decided to stay and work to help the people directly affected by the crisis.
"This is my adopted home. I was born and raised in Detroit. I know what it's like to be in a city that's neglected. And, so, the residents of Flint feel like they've been neglected. And at least, as an adopted daughter of Flint, I can do something," Allen said.
She started delivering water to help residents and posted about it on her Facebook page. Then, she created the Water for Flint-WFF page in January after family and friends living out-of-state requested a way to donate and help her cause.
