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!
My daughter will be in attendance next summer!!
An Awesome program for our youth. A program geared and for the young ladies! Exactly what I was looking for since my daughter lives with 3 older brothers. Most of the summer programs and summer camps are unisex. I was excited to find a program just for her. I think it is important to be involved with something the girls can call their own.
My daughter enjoyed meeting other little girls. Enjoyed meeting new people. She also enjoyed the various workshops and learning session
She particularly enjoyed the exercise session and she enjoyed the instructor as well. Throughout the various workshops she enjoyed learning things about the other girls while also learning things about herself. As a parent I am happy that she is happy. When picking her up at the end of the camp day she always will get in the car smiling and in high spirits. That to me indicates the day she has had. I am pleased we found an environment where she feels comfortable and safe while learning and having fun.
Awesome and necessary work for our young girls. Keep thriving! Keep mentoring!
The program leaders encourage them to see the beauty and excellence that lies within themselves.
I recently created with the young ladies of Women Just Like Me and immediately fell in love with this programs mission to uplift young women. The program leaders encourage them to see the beauty and excellence that lies within themselves. I was impressed with how the girls were taught to be confident and achieve their goals through self expression and boldly stating positive affirmations. I would highly recommend this program to young ladies coming of age.
This is a great chance for young ladies to connect
support us and change the course of a girl’s life today!
