Lady Butterflies is a 501(c)3 non-profit community enterprise organization founded
February 19, 2010, by Felicia A. Shanklin, M.Ed., with goals of providing
comprehensive 'one-stop' social supportive services for women and teen girls in transition.
We launched our full supportive services in Columbus, OH from February 2010 - December 2015.
We currently provide VERY LIMITED information resources to individuals in Columbus, OH.
We have since transitioned our full supportive services, as of January 2016, to the City and Metropolitan areas of Atlanta, GA - servicing Clayton, DeKalb, Fulton, and Gwinnett Counties.
Being “in transition” can be challenging for everyone. Sometimes being in transition is beyond our control and we need to cope as best as we can. Sometimes we decide to take the plunge and
re-invent ourselves, find meaning, purpose and a renewed excitement about life!
Being "in transition" can encompass everything from divorce, 2nd marriages, relationships,
self esteem, finances, depression, health, domestic violence, beginning or going back
to school, children leaving home, mid life crisis, widow hood, finding yourself unemployed,
getting a promotion or just being stuck in a rut looking for life purpose!
Our services are designed to assist women and teen girls through a period of transformation and empower them to move life forward, while becoming self-directed, self-motivated, and
self-confident in the process. With the help of our professional and compassionate staff, we provide everything from comprehensive supportive case management services, support group sessions, mentoring, advocacy, community and employment resource center, life skills community education center and even fitness fun programs to help promote personal growth and development.
While our primary focus is on women and teen girls,
we do provide some services for all individuals and families.
