Hello, my name is Katrina Butler, and I am a justice-impacted writer, certified program manager, and social justice life coach as well as the founder and CEO of So Far, So Close, a 501c3 organization.  So Far So Close aims to provide a safe and comfortable support system for the 189,00 Georgia children that have had a parent in jail or prison. We are unique in using our lived experiences, spiritual practices, and social impact coaching with restorative justice practice to address harm.

So Far So Close, INC. brings thoughtfulness and empathy to women and their families impacted by the trauma caused by family violence and incarceration through developing a successful path toward healing and self-worth. Currently, there are over 110,00 women in prison in Georgia with 55% women of color, 95% of women having no prior prison sentences, and 83% of the women have either experienced family violence or are in prison for family violence. Out of all incarcerated women, there are over 90% that are mothers. 

 Our services and programs are intentional about decarceration of women who have been incarcerated due to family violence as well as how incarceration affects the children.


Our services target healing inwardly while allowing the opportunity to educate themselves through professional certificate courses that promote job readiness and resources for higher education.  So Far So Close services and programs are intentional in aiding to end recidivism and the children repeating the same behaviors that led their parents in becoming incarcerated. The more we support justice-impacted families the less we will have individuals entering the incarceration system thus helping to end mass incarceration.    

So Far So Close is a 501c3 organization that is asking for everyone’s help to aid justice-impacted domestic violence women and their families toward a new start in life while reducing recidivism. With your help, we can offer all our services for free to our victims by donating the following.

  • Financial support (monies will be used towards social impact life coaching and direct services to support everyday living necessities
