Women Betrayed

Posted by | Jul 28, 2015 | No Comments

Today, across the country at over 60 locations, there will be “Women Betrayed” demonstrations to investigate and de-fund Planned Parenthood.  There is no question that women have been betrayed by Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion clinics, with decades of lies under the pretense of caring for women. Their funding should be stopped.

One Life at a Time

Posted by | Jul 7, 2015 | No Comments

Hearing our moms speak about what Good Counsel has meant to them is one of the most rewarding things about being a part of this most necessary mission. As some of our moms said at our 30th Anniversary Celebration, Good Counsel has allowed them to “get their life together,” “allowed me not to worry anymore,” and “When I was in a dark space, Good Counsel gave me light.”

We are grateful we got to capture some of their witness on video to share with you as part of our online journal from the event. Click below to hear their stories, as well as the testimonies of Fr. Andrew Apostoli, CFR, Kathy DiFiore of Several Sources, and our own Deacon Peter and his wife, JoAnn, longtime friends and supporters of Good Counsel. Read More

Staten Island Status Update

Posted by | Jul 7, 2015 | No Comments

Our home on Staten Island has been undergoing renovations with the goal of reopening its doors for women in a crisis pregnancy in the local area. We are excited to report that we are on target for a late summer reopen date!Thanks to the prayers and financial support of donors and friends during the last three years – Good Counsel Staten Island will soon be part of the community again!

Recently, I spoke with Dawn Brown who has been working on the reopening project, to get a status report. Dawn said, “The major work has been completed.  The entire interior of the home has been freshly painted, and there are new floors and carpet in the majority of the house.” She continued, “We need some minor plumbing work done in the next few weeks, a roofing repair, and some concrete work done on the outside front steps.” Read More

It’s Independence Day!

Posted by | Jul 4, 2015 | No Comments

On July 4th, we celebrate our country’s independence, freedom, and new life in the United States of America. Many of our moms at Good Counsel feel their independence was gone forever after having lived under oppressive, and often dangerous, circumstances. Before coming to Good Counsel, many moms felt they had no voice or choice. Because of you, our moms have found a new freedom – freedom that comes from feeling cared for and cared about.

When a homeless, pregnant woman comes to Good Counsel, she is set on a path toward independence, toward a job, her own place to live, education, and training in necessary skills. She also learns about the unique freedom that comes from surrendering all to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Read More
