To help women and teen girls in transition navigate their path to success by helping them reach their level of stability and self-sufficiency with the social supportive services necessary to exist and sustain without judgment and without bias.
We are the ‘help center’ – the ‘one-stop-shop’ for their needs without regard to income, race, religion, age, sex, mental or physical disability.
Lady Butterflies is a 501(c)3 non-profit community 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 supportive services in Columbus, OH from February 2010 - December 2015.
We have now transitioned as of January 2016 to the City and Metropolitan areas of Atlanta, GA area - 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.
