Baby Steps for South Jersey

Posted by | May 07, 2015 | News | No Comments

Save the date! The annual Walk-a-Thon for Good Counsel Homes – South Jersey is scheduled for Saturday, June 6, 2015.

Four years ago, we opened our doors to our home in Riverside, New Jersey.  Within one month of opening, we were operating at over 100% occupancy, as no mom in need is ever turned away.  We have witnessed the birth of 44 babies since then.  Our moms are enrolled in nursing, business programs, and college.  Good Counsel – South Jersey has been a safe haven for homeless pregnant women and their children which has only been possible through your continued support.  We are committed to producing better lives for single moms and their children by providing them a loving home, programs for education and career development, counseling, as well as training in social skills, parenting, and nutrition

One of our moms is now working as a dental assistant in Philadelphia and another as a pharmaceutical tech.  We also have mothers working towards achieving their high school diploma.  At the time of this post, we have 10 mothers in residence, 8 babies, and 2 toddlers.

Please help us continue to provide a safe, loving home where we can educate, empower, and give respect back to those who need it so desperately.  Your support will enable the staff to help our mothers achieve independence and provide a stable living environment for their families.

Please join us on June 6th to show your support!  Register between 8:30 and 10:00 a.m. and then walk from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  There are multiple locations to choose from!
