Review from Guidestar

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.

The Dannon Project is a life saver for many ex-felons coming out of the system. We truly need someone in our corner that has not only been there, but understands what it is like to be judged by society. They understand the trials and tribulations that ex-felons face on a day to day basis. The Dannon Project has been there for me through trying times in this trying time in my life. Without their support, many of us would just quit trying to succeed in life and go back to our comfort zone which would just end us right back in the same situation we began with. We need more positive influences in our lives like the Dannon Project. They truly strive to make life worth living in a normal social environment.

During Christmas 2010, they helped me provide toys for my grandchildren and for once in 12 months, I felt like I actually put joy back in my grandchildrens lives.

I would get more community help and get in the Media more. The Dannon Project is not as well known as they should be.

My name is Dawn Greening. I became a participant of the Dannon Project in late November, early December of 2010. Since enrolling in the program, The Dannon Project has been of tremendous help to me in many ways. TDP offered me courses on lifeskills, financial literacy, finding out about all the various college options open to me. They also support me in various other ways. They give us participants moral support, they give us someone to talk to to help us figure out our next steps coming out of prison and transitioning back into society.
They make all the difference to us who have noone when we come home. They prepare us for job interviews, as well as help us find gainful employment, so that we not only feel, but we become contributing members of society.
TDP is a wonderful organization, and the people who run the program, the people who work at the program, really care, they really want to make a difference. And they do.
What started out as a tragedy for one family, became a blessing to hundreds of convicted persons all over Alabama. And, I, as a participant of this organization am truly grateful for all that they stand for and do.

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 ).

The Great!

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

Assistance in career/job placement, medical services/medication, housing, clothing and mentoring.

The Dannon Project is a gift from God. If it wasn't for them I don't know where I would be. As soon as I got released from prison they were there to guide me through tough times. I appreciate the entire staff for there continuous support. They help me find employment even though i had been incarcerated. I love them all
