Review from Guidestar
February 21, 2011

I am an RN, and in my 40 years of serving one way or another in volunteer programs, grants programs and awareness groups, I have never seen a program quite like the Dannon Project. ALL (emphasize ALL) the staff I've dealt with there are friendly, knowledgeable, professional and eager to assist. The clients I've met through the year or so I've been involved with the Dannon Project are, without exception, trying to better themselves in order to return to the community as a productive citizen, and most of them, in order to return to a family they hope will be proud of them. Many of them have children or elderly parents they want to support. The clients are apparently carefully screened, because I haven't met one yet that I thought was "taking advantage" of the services Dannon offers.

In short, the staff, clients, volunteers of the Dannon Project are the most sincere and honest group of people I've ever met in this type of project. Huge CUDOs, Dannon Project!!

The Dannon Project partners with the Board of Pardons and Paroles Birmingham Office to provide reentry services to nonviolent offenders. We assist in providing group mentoring and supervision to the participants. The love, dedication, generority, and loyalty the staff exhibits are geniune. They have a great relationship with the P&P staff. Highly successful program!

My experience as seen through the eyes of a consultant have been very rewarding. I have enjoyed sharing in a spirit of excellence with transforming clients lives into productive citizens. Assisting clients with resumes, job searches, analyzing and enhancing their skills and abilities to advance their market share as a prospective employee. I believe The Dannon Project organization is very unique in the transformation of the lives of the clients it serves. While with limited financial resources the employess go above and beyond to address the daily challenges of their clients; medical, transportation, clothing, food, shelter, debts, counseling; just to mention a few needs of how they draw from their personal monies to achieve success in their endeavors is a miracle. I am proud to be a part of such an organization especially in hard economic times when it comes to rebuilding the lives of our clients.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

finding clients jobs in a bleak economic season is astounding to say the least; however, we do not guarantee job placement, but we enhance our clients skills and abilities to advance their candidacy for employment.

I have had a life changing experience while volunteering at Dannon. When you hear non-profit you expect just that, an organiztion full of generous people; but the people here go above and beyond the call of duty. They are helpful, kind and warming. They genuinly care about their participants and they even expand beyond just those enrolled in the program. they reach out to those who seek more in life as well as their families. These people provide more then just physical shelter and food; they provide what each of us were put on this earth to do and that is to look beyond our own personal gains from a situation and to help others achieve greatness.

ONE MISSION ONE LIFE AT A TIME encapsulates the true attitude of each and every individual I have had the pleasure of coming in contact with at the Dannon Project. Being newly released from ( early release program ) prison has it's own unique set of problems. The staff ( from Corp. Office to Computer Lab ) exudes a true interest in every facet of my life as well as many unexpected problems ( from lack of family support to lack of interest from potential employers ). I wish to take this opportunity to thank the entire staff ( and volunteers ) for your prompt and sensitive attentivness to my needs and your continued support ( follow up as well as follow through ).

First of all let me thank God for being apart of the Project. Now as far as the program it should have been around 20 years ago, I am almost sure if it had I would have not went back to Prison.It help me at 55 years of age just think what it could do for younger men and women.
