An ordinary, everyday trash bag for a suitcase.

Filled with her most critical possessions a change of clothes, a few hygiene items, a photo, a keepsake she was out on the street.

By God’s grace, Cindy found Good Counsel. Your love met her when she walked through these doors. Your generosity enabled Good Counsel to take her trash bag and replace it with all the necessities of life, a home full of love, and hope for the future.

It’s not unusual here at Good Counsel, pregnant women arriving at our door with nothing more than the clothes on their backs and a trash bag filled with all they have in this world.

Psalm 34:19 says “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those whose spirit is crushed.”

Your Christ-like compassion expressed through generous gifts to Good Counsel gives life to that passage, assuring a mom: You are loved and you are going to be safe and well cared for until you and your child are able to make it on your own.

Thanks to committed, caring friends like you, Good Counsel will never have to turn a mom away.

Another mom like Cindy will arrive later today or tomorrow with all she owns in a trash bag—that’s why I’m asking you now: Will you please give a generous gift today?

Thank you and God bless you!
