My husband (Anthony Adams) is a former client of The Dannon Project, and we give total credit to them for helping and assisting him along the way. They are truly here to help and assist those in need. We are still very close and thankful to The Dannnon Project, Kerri, Jeh Jeh and the staff.

I want everyone to know why the Dannon Project is so special to me. It was named after my brother, who had the best smile in the world. His life was taken at 18 years old by my good friend, who at the time was living a life of crime. My beautiful wife Kerri wanted to honor my brother who she never met, but loved him as much as I did. We wanted to help those who at one time lived in the crime world, but want to change their lives, and become respectful citizens. We, The Dannon Project, have helped so many people in the city of Birmingham. We want to help everyone who is getting out of prison with job training, housing, clothing, and emotional counseling. In some way, if we look back at all the things we've done, some of us could be in the same position. That is why The Dannon Project, to me, is the best organization for previously incarcerated prisoners who have turned a complete 180. Thank you for honoring this agency and helping other agencies who are helping people.

As a retired school principal and lifetime childrens' advocate, I truly can appreciate the mission and work of The Dannon Project. The organization seeks to rehabilitate and assist those who, for one reason or another, have lost their way. This segment of our society is a growing one and has very specific needs. The Project starts its work during incarceration and continues as individuals attempt to re-enter society. This is a crucial time when assistance and positive reinforcement are needed if the cycle is to be broken. Thank you for an agency that is truly needed and appreciated.

I am a long term contributor to The Dannon Project (TDP). It is an outstanding nationally recognized agency (see You Tube Feeding Dreams on TDP story) reflecing how they are consistently providing quality services to at risk populations including underemployed, unemployed, non violent previously incarcerated persons and youth who are pregnant, parenting, child of an incarcerated person or teen who had troubles with the law. The Dannon Project provides exceptionally high quality customer service to participants and their families while working closely with other community based and governmental agencies to prevent duplication of services. The Dannon Project uses resources wisely making it a great investment for every dollar contributed leading to outcomes that far exceed national, state and regional outcomes. The participants receive the services and support they need to change their lives and give them a second chance to achieve their hopes and dreams. They receive assessment, case management, housing, counseling, health care, pharmacy assistance, job training and plaement, state work certifications, savings accounts and financial literacy training, life skills training, pathways out of poverty training, character counts training, HIV AIDS prevention training, and a host of other supportive services and mentor matching to change their ways of thinking and support to learn new behaviors that will help them achieve their goals and dreams and show how they can do all things through unconditional love which is in abundance at TDP. Participants are treated with dignity and respect with high expectations for goal achievement being the anticipated return on investment. They hire participants and you cannot tell whether the staff is a former participant or a professional because the staff takes great pride in providing high quality professional service to each person who comes in contact with the agency making them feel important and part of the family, that whatever happened in the past will not influence how the agency is there to support you in achieving your future goals and aspirations. It is refreshing to know that there are people who truly care for others to restore and re-engage them in our community to create success for all involved. Now if they had more money and resources for prevention maybe they could actually prevent folks from making choices of crime and help build skills in how to plan and implement the plan as to how to have a successful life without having to get in trouble with the law and then come in contact with TDP. I enjoy attending events where participants are awarded certicates and receive incentives for goal achievements for training completion, job placements, certifications like CNA, Phlebotomy, EKG and Pharmacy Tech.

The dannon project is a gift to the community it serves. It not only does it help people who are needing a second chance at rebuilding their lifes, but also provides a service to those in the community who would have been impacted directly or indirectly by the recidivism the offender it serves. Thanks to dannon project the community is safer and some people get a second chance at rebuilding their life.

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!

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

The service provided by the Dannon Project is very effective. the Prison Re-Entry program not only provides occupational skills training for individuals re-accessing the general public to be able to find employment. Other services incllude assistance with finding housing, transportation to training and/or employment as well as access to medical facilities. While in occupational skills traiing, individuals also may access GED preparation if needed. The Youth Program funded with WIA Yoth funds provides all of the aforementioned services as well to older youth that have dropped out of school and need to get their high school diploma as well as learn a skill. The Job Readiness component is very strong as is the Work Retention training. It included Conflict Resolution on the job! The program works with between 20 -30 individuals every three months and this model has been effective.Dannon Project staff members work closely with the individuals that have completed training by providing assistance with Job Placement.

The Dannon Project (TDP) is in place to help those who have made some bad choices. Once they have "paid their dues" TDP works to help them make good choices. They do this by helping them change their environment to a positive one. Part of their assistance involves providing education if they need/want it; finding housing, clothing and other basic essentials; offering mentors and training and most of all letting them know they don't have to go back into the life that ended them up in jail. TDP is staffed with people who want to make a difference in poeple's life by lending them a helping hand. I have the privilege of helping out in the office from time-to-time and I've seen that TDP makes a difference one person at a time!

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!!

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.

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 ).

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.
