In 2006, Sue Wieland and her husband John made a $1 million gift to The Atlanta Women’s Foundation. That generosity continues to be honored with the annual Sue Wieland Embracing Possibility Award. The award is a special grant of $20,000 given annually to one of our grantee partner organizations. The selected organization demonstrates outstanding ability to make significant change in the lives of women and girls through their ongoing work and by using an example of one individual that the organization sees as a shining example of their program.
"What you keep you lose and only what you give remains your own."

Community Advanced Practice Nurses' (CAPN) mission is to strengthen the lives of persons who are medically underserved and to help interrupt the cycle of poverty and homelessness for these individuals. The main clinic is located in a women and children’s emergency shelter in Northeast Atlanta in the Old Fourth Ward with outreach sites at eight other shelters across metro Atlanta. CAPN runs programs that include primary health care, family planning, STD screening, health education, and mental health services. The clinic provides referrals for specialized care in order to continue to monitor chronic health problems.
Community Advanced Practice Nurses is a partner in AWF’s Promoting Women and Girls’ Mental Health & Wellbeing Project.
