Join Your Georgia Country on July 28th at our Hometown Tour stop in Stephens County at the Ida Cox Music Series in Toccoa! We’ll be broadcasting live from 6pm-8pm and celebrating the Stephens County Hometown Hero, Danny Yearwood!
Danny was rescued and delivered from drugs on April 22, 2005 in a jail cell. He has been advocating for people seeking recovery for the past 12 years. Danny has been a Chaplain and Inmate Advocate for the Stephen’s County Sheriff’s Department since 2009, and under the direction of Sheriff Randy Shirley, he organized a jail ministry program to reach incarcerated men and women. The program currently has 90 members.
Danny has created relationships with local churches to support the jail ministry program and those seeking treatment. He has also made connections with treatment centers, both faith based and 12 Step, to refer people requesting treatment.
Danny is currently building faith based mentor teams to minister to those struggling with hurts, habits, and hang-ups. In the past 12 years, he has referred 1,060 people to different centers, with 28% still clean and involved in recovery.
By getting people out of jail and into treatment, Danny is saving Stephens County taxpayers money!
