Mission & Vision
To insure maximum utilization of resources in the geographical area of Birmingham, Jefferson and surrounding counties by employing all of the resources in the area, including but not limited to, resources available from private charitable sources and from local, state and federal governments to assist in the development of healthy communities and lifestyles, thereby, preventing violence and other at-risk behaviors that lead to unemployment, disease, incarceration and re-incarceration, premature death and generational cycles of poverty and economic exclusion.
The Dannon Project is the “Point of Contact” within the community to provide supportive services, case management and referrals to several at-risk populations, specifically non-violent ex-offenders, unemployed, under employed youth and adults, both male and females, which will result in permanent employment, housing, improved and sustained health, mentors, counseling, stable families and significantly change poor social behavior patterns
The New Ribbon Campaign
TDP would like to introduce to you our NEW Green Ribbon Campaign! We hope by promoting our green ribbon campaign that it will raise awareness about the issues that previously incarcerated persons (PIP) face when reentering communities across America. Your support is needed to make this campaign a success.
Our Career Readiness “Dannon Star” is Mr. Reginald Woodson. He enrolled into our Success Lab on December 13, 2011. During his initial career counseling session, he told us that he wanted to receive computer training and test for his GED. He stated that he had never used a computer before and had no idea what email was. After his third day in the computer lab, Reginald was able to log on to the computer and complete Financial Literacy without the assistance of the lab instructors.
