New Training Program Called Re-Entry Demonstration Project

Wednesday, February 22, 2017


A nonprofit organization that offers opportunities for people who have been in conflict with the law is getting a grant. The Dannon Project is receiving a four-point-five million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to develop a new training program called Re-entry Demonstration Project. The money will be split between the offices in Jefferson County and Hobson City. Site Coordinator and Program Manager Tamar Towns says the grant money will help in a big way. The Re-entry Demonstration Project will offer people training for work, job development skills, leadership training and more. The nonprofit was founded by Jeh Jeh Pruitt and his wife in 1999, three years after Pruitt’s brother was accidentally shot and killed by a man who’d recently been released from prison.
