We love to celebrate at Good Counsel Homes and we especially love to celebrate our moms’ big accomplishments! Most of our mothers come to Good Counsel having escaped dire circumstances, but they persevere, and we are blessed to be part of their journey.
Recently, one of our moms, Ana, received her Letter of Acceptance from Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing! Ana was one of only 50 applicants accepted into the nursing program. Fr. Chris Mann, Parochial Vicar of Holy Child Parish, celebrated Mass with the staff of our South Jersey home, our resident moms and their babies where we all prayed for Ana’s continued success as she embarks on this new phase of her life”
Helping mothers who were once homeless in whatever way we can to help them return to a renewed life with their babies is always our goal. Did you know each mother who stays at Good Counsel spends time with a Case Manager to plan for her future success? As part of our Vocation Education program, trained staff and volunteers meet with every resident upon admission and assist her in assessing and identifying her interests, abilities, and employment opportunities. Other Good Counsel programs include Budgeting, Parenting, Nutrition, and Spirituality & Chastity programs.
Please keep Ana and all of our moms and babies in your prayers!
