Review from Guidestar

I began participating in the Dannon Project on October 7, 2010 after being released from prison. Since then, I have completed all of the programs offered here. Through my diligence and hard work, I was afforded the opportunity to participate in the STP program here. It gives me a chance to not only assist others who face the same trials that I have, but also gives me a chance to give back to the same people who gave me a chance. I am now the lab assistant in training through the STP program, with the opportunity to become a full time employee with the Dannon Project. The Dannon Project has given me and so many others another chance at life!

I have been a part of the Dannon Project for a very short time, one week. In that week I have been able to come to the Success Lab to work on my computer skills. My personal experience has been exciting, motivating and very encouraging.

In volunteering with the Dannon Project I feel the agency is such a delightful place. All the staff were open to listening ears and helping hands. I learned alot from the agency, I gained alot of experience and with that experience I was able to gain full time employment with the Agency. This Agency is well known in the community for their acts of helping and being concerned for the PIPs(previously incarcerated persons). I have really enjoyed working for the Dannon Project. They have done and are doing a great thing.

I have beenpart of the Dannon Project since November of 2010. Since that time I have learned how to operate a computer, they have also helped me with my education. I have the opportunity to use the computer lab to not only increase my computers, but search for a job, and communication skill. The Dannon Project has been good for me because they help keep me motivated to never give up on my goal of being successful in life. +

I am new to the Dannon Project. I became a participant just two weeks ago. Since that time I have been assisted with my job search and interview skills. I am currently working on my computer skills and ready to work program. The staff at the Dannon Project has been very courtious, helpful, and concerned about my well being. Overall, I think this is a great program that helps ex offenders.

I have been involved in the Dannon Project since July 26, 2010. I was released from Julia Tutwiler Prison on June 30, 2010. After I got out of prison I felt so alone, even though I had family to back me up. They just didnt understand what prison takes out of you. The minute I walked in the door at Dannon I felt like I was finally home. I went to all of the computer classes, got my Ready To Work Certificate, was put on the Skills Training Program and the next thing I know I now have full time job with Dannon!!! I have never been this happy in my entire 50 years of my life. The road to this happy place wasnt easy but with people in my corner it took the edge off and I felt like I could conquer the world with people keeping me uplifted.

I am new to the Dannon Project, but in the short time I've been in the program, I have come to learn that it is a good program to assist individuals with reentering society. I have able to work on my limited computer skills. I have been good to know that there are people who care about you.

I became a participant in the Dannon Project in December of 2010. Since that I have completed various programs which will enable me to find gainful employment. The Dannon Project is also equipping me with life skill that I will be utilized for years to come. I am grateful for the opportunity to have had to be a part of an orgainiztion such as the Dannon Project, and to have had good people take and interest in my life.

It is such a blessing to have tireless leaders and workers in an organization like The Dannon Project. It takes a passion and strong desire to help people to be able to push through the road blocks that are put in front their participants. The people who work at Dannon Project have to show the participants that they will not give up on them like so many other people or even family have. That's what helps them persevere as well!

While working as a case worker, watched the life of one particular young lady turn around completely. She felt hopeless and her situation seemed hopeless, but she soon found out that was not the case.

More backing by the community, County, State, etc...They are providing a service to all of us by helping train and find jobs for individuals who truly want to work, but need the opportunity to do so.
