Developing And Nurturing Needy Youth



Welcome to the D.A.N.N.Y. Center website

The DANNY Center Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that serves as a centralized resource
for the community.  It is comprised of a diverse group of individuals from various ethnic groups and backgrounds. We have a common goal which is to enrich the lives of the youth in our community. To serve as facilitators that provide education, career, and recreational opportunities for all youth who can benefit from them.  When these programs do not exist in your area, we will collaborate with other nonprofit organizations within the community to offer them to our youth or we will create them ourselves.



Thank You for visiting, and have a Blessed Day!


ASPIRE Mentorship Program (Young Men)

ASPIRE (Seek; Pursue; Ambitious; Determined)

Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity. Yet one in three young people will grow up without this critical asset. click for more info

Incredible Years

Evening Reporting Center (ERC)

The Evening Reporting Center is a program that provides alternatives for at-risk youth. This program provides facilitated evidence based programs in a structured environment from 4:30-8:30pm, Monday-Wednesday. These are the peak hours in which teens are more likely to participate in mischief behaviors.

The Evening Reporting Center utilizes 3 evidence based curriculums to work with parents and students which address underlying issues that lead to anti-social or deviant behavior.  Curriculums: Strengthening Families Program (SFP) / Botvin Life Skill Training and Aggression Replacement Training (ART).

Watch and listen to what the ERC program has done for this family:

Positive Action (PA)

Positive Action is a systematic educational program that promotes an intrinsic interest in learning and encourages cooperation among students. It works by teaching and reinforcing the intuitive philosophy that you feel good about yourself when you do positive actions.

Strengthening Families

The Strengthening Families Program (SFP 12-17) is an evidence-based prevention program for parents and children 12-17 in higher risk families. SFP consists of parenting skills, children's life skills, and family skills training courses taught together in fourteen 2-hours group sessions preceded by a meal that includes informal family practice time and group leader coaching. SFP was designed in 14 sessions to assure sufficient dosage to promote behavior change in high risk families.

Agression Replacement Training (ART)

Aggression Replacement Training (ART) concentrates on development of individual competencies to address various emotional and social aspects that contribute to aggressive behavior in youths. Program techniques are designed to teach youths how to control their angry impulses and take perspectives other than their own. The main goal is to reduce aggression and violence among youths by providing them with opportunities to learn prosocial skills in place of aggressive behavior.

Botvin Life Skills (BLS)

The Botvin LifeSkills Training program is a highly interactive, skills-based program designed to promote positive health and personal development for middle and high school youth. Based on the highly effective LifeSkills Training curriculum, this program helps adolescents navigate the challenges of the middle and high school years and prepares them for the independence and responsibilities that they will encounter as young adults. The LifeSkills Training program uses developmentally appropriate, collaborative learning strategies to help students achieve competency in the skills that have been found to reduce and prevent substance use and violence.

Community Service

 Our Community Service Program connects those individuals who need to complete court ordered community service, college and High School students looking to fulfill a community service requirement. There are non-profit organizations, churches, and or community businesses in need of free assistance. Finding a community service opportunity shouldn't be that complicated...
