Women’s Emergency Network (WEN) subsidizes abortion care for South Florida low-income women and girls who can’t afford a safe, legal procedure without financial assistance. WEN operates on the principle that every woman must have the right and ability to decide if and when she becomes a mother.

These are actions that change the course of people's lives. Learn more about WEN clients by clicking here.
