The Dannon Project at Pee Dee Healthy Start

The Dannon Project at
Pee Dee Healthy Start serves high-risk and at-risk youth ages 18 -24 who seek to improve their skills through occupational and life training opportunities.   The goal of our “re-entry strategy” is to interrupt the cycle of recidivism by helping participants successfully remain in or return to the community. We begin working with non-violent offenders who are placed on a sustainable career path while working to prevent future involvement with the justice system.
