Dannon Project's Social Workers Help Change Lives @ BPL

The Dannon Project and the Birmingham Public Library are partnering again to offer the Social Workers Help Change Lives @ BPL consultations in 2019. From January 9 through March 27, 2019, library patrons can meet with a Dannon Project social worker to address personal barriers to success. Dannon Project staff will then connect BPL patrons with various service providers offering services such as housing, job search assistance and employment, legal referrals, domestic violence counseling, and healthcare, including mental health programs.

Last year, the Dannon Project began providing assistance for BPL patrons desiring social services at various BPL locations.  

In addition to the social worker program, the Dannon Project and BPL are partnering again to host a Health Fair similar to one held last year. The 2019 health fair will be held on Wednesday, March 6, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Central Library
