WHO WE ARE
No Girl Should Ever Have to Beat the Odds Alone
The Women Just Like Me is a 501 c(3) organization that offers supportive services and resources to at risk female adolescents, young mothers, and families in disadvantaged communities in need of additional support. Our goal is to lower the rate of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections in Franklin County, and to educate young mother’s on healthy and positive parenting, and family well-being.
The organization’s office is located in Columbus, Ohio and it was founded by Shammikka Danielle. She became a teen mom at 16. Through Women Just Like Me, Danielle shows girls and young women that it’s possible to beat the odds and they don’t have to become a victim of their circumstances. She’s living proof of that! Danielle is a mother, a business owner, a mentor, and God’s daughter that want to guide girls and women to their destiny!
To be supported and uplifted has so much meaning.
Women Just like Me and working with them was such a great opportunity to be apart of. In celebration of women with growth and more opportunities to come; we never know the impact one can have on another and to be supported and uplifted has so much meaning.
