After being released from incarceration I felt like my life was over. I lost my mother,father,grandmother, and grandfather all during my incarcerationband had no where to go so I came to a transitional house here in Birmingham. But that wasn't cutting it, they didnlt help you with nothing. I heard about "The Dannon Project" and decided to see what they were about. Right away when I entered into the office I was welcomed and they really seemed to care about my needs and desires. I didn't have anything-clothes,hygiene,shoes, or an ID. This team of loving and caring professionals went above and beyond their duty to make sure that my needs were met. I was not the only one I have seen these people do the same thing for many others. I feel like others should get on board with "The Dannon Project" and help those who are having a hard time helping themselves.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
they are always there to help whether it is helping you with your resume, taking you to an appointment, or just giving some encouraging words.
