Our Vision is for each woman to live in a world where a mistake could lead to an unbelievable success story. Our Mission is to serve as a beacon of hope by providing transitional services and helping women achieve self-sufficiency. Black Butterfly offers an opportunity for women to turn their lives around, accomplish goals, and succeed in whatever they want to do.

We know these young women are full of talent, power, and gifts. We focus on changing the created systems, interrupt debilitating cycles of suffering, and provide a way out. These young women transform into valuable contributors for their family and our community through love, meaningful relationships, and healing support.

The values of this community are informed by love and respect for one another; trusting relationships, mutual accountability; and healing core hurts.

This core supports fuel a sister’s transformation:
A safe, affordable home with community meals along with healing circles, career development, mentoring, and life coaching sessions

Connections to culturally appropriate behavioral health counseling and treatment programs

Volunteers who provide support in the home and the community, including assisting with job search and retention

Black Butterfly’s holistic approach leads to a change in thinking and healthy habits. With a new perspective on themselves and their life, sisters have hope, and they are inspired to pursue a new journey toward real success.

Core Values
We welcome each woman with open arms and believe that every person deserves a second, third, and even fourth chance. We strive to help all women reach their highest potential by bridging the gap between resources and marginalized communities.
We will bring a unique value to the community by providing individualized services through specialized staff to help guide them to becoming contributing members of society.
