Our Programs and Services
From educational resources to emotional support, we strive to empower our community and improve their quality of life. Explore our programs and services below to see how we can assist you on your journey toward health and wellness.
Wig Outreach Program
Many lupus and fibromyalgia survivors suffer from alopecia due to the illness or medications taken to treat the illness. Losing your hair can be devastating and traumatic. Social Butterflies Foundation wants to ensure survivors that they are beautiful inside and outside. They are not alone.
The Wig Outreach program does not just focus on wigs, but it addresses wellness. The program hosts workshops with guest speakers discussing hair, skin, and other beauty tips to focus on both inside and outside.
For more information about the wig outreach program, please contact Ms. Shannon Spivey at SSpivey@socialbutterfliesfoundation.org.

Care Outreach Program
The Care Outreach Program is our way of showing that we care. We want survivors to know that they
are not alone. When a survivor is dealing with bereavement, hospitalized, had surgery, welcomed a new baby, got a new promotion, or celebrating a birthday or even retirement, Social Butterflies Foundation acknowledges those moments with them.
The Care Program also has distributed blessing bags filled with PPE and backpacks filled with school supplies. During the holidays, we adopt families to ensure that they are able to have a joyous one as well. It is important for Social Butterflies Foundation to be a blessing to others and uplift the lupus and fibromyalgia community.

Emergency Financial Assistance
Living with a chronic illness does not just affect the individual physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It also affects them financially. Often survivors may miss numerous days of work, are unable to work full-time, or are deemed disabled. Social Butterflies Foundation understands this dilemma and created its Emergency Financial Assistance program to help provide some relief bridging the gap in service. No one should have to choose between their health and their utilities. The Emergency Financial Assistance Program will assist persons 18 years of age or older medically diagnosed with lupus and/or fibromyalgia residing in Virginia or Maryland with grants to assist with medical bills, prescription costs, and utilities. A medical release form must be completed and signed. Approved grants will be paid directly to the agency or healthcare provider.
