The Justice through Empowerment Network (JEN) helps South Dakota patients access abortion and family planning services. If a patient is unable to access abortion care in South Dakota, JEN will help them travel to a clinic in another state.
JEN's main goal is to provide practical support for South Dakota patients seeking abortion care. This includes educating the patient, helping them access existing assistance programs, and financially assisting with all aspects related to their procedure, including transportation, lodging, childcare, food, interpreters, and additional prescriptions. Additionally, JEN helps patients access birth control and emergency contraception, and provides education about where to access services and financial assistance when needed.
