This organization has operated in South Florida now for close to 20 years, steadily growing and providing services to the increasing proportion of poor women living in a state with no public funding for abortion. WEN has taken on both the "routine" clients - the many many poor women with other children at home, the women trying to finish degrees or get jobs that will unable them to better care for the children they have or plan to have, and the egregious cases of the women who are raped, mentally challenged, or the victims of sexual slavery. They also have provided invaluable help with the judicial bypass system for minors who cannot obtain the state required parental consent. The organization has always kept its administrative costs to a bare minimum through the efforts of the hard working almost entirely volunteer staff. Their clients come well-counseled about both their decision to end the pregnancy and about options for future birth control.
