W.E.A.N. (Women Embracing Abilities Now) is a peer counseling/mentoring organization servicing women and young ladies with varying degrees of dis-ABILITIES.
The mission of W.E.A.N. is to "wean" women and young ladies with dis-ABILITIES from having their limitations be their focal point, thus having them living "with" their ABILITIES.
W.E.A.N. also seeks to empower and promote independence at its highest level to women and young ladies with dis-ABILITIES. To help them become more productive by creating mentoring relationships, and hosting workshops and conferences that teach coping skills such as self-esteem, advocacy, body image, and sexuality.
