December 2016 - Good Counsel

Good Counsel Needs $100K by December 31st

Posted by | Dec 22, 2016 | No Comments

Financial Update: Good News! Thanks to the generosity of many friends and donors, Good Counsel reached its $100,000 year-end goal.

2016 was a year filled with promise.

Good Counsel expanded into Alabama’s Gulf Coast, celebrated the birth of our 1,000th baby, and we opened a new, licensed, Daycare facility, “Genesis,” in the Bronx!

With all that we have accomplished I still need to come to you as we reach year’s end and ask for financial help. Otherwise we will be at risk to make significant cutbacks in 2017. Read More

Recently, Bill McGurn, Columnist for the Wall Street Journal, visited our Bronx home to find out what goes on at our very special “inn.”  Case Manager Tameika Davis shepherded Mr. McGurn through the home offering an up-close look at how a Good Counsel home works, how our mothers, babies, and children live, and how our residents and dedicated staff work and grow together living out an enlightening and timeless Christmas story each and every day.  Good Counsel was featured in Mr. McGurn’s weekly “Main Street” column in the WSJ.

Abortion and Advent

Posted by | Dec 14, 2016 | 3 Comments

I love the Advent season.  It has become a real resting place, a “glorious expectation” of the coming of the Christ Child into our midst.  But, it was not always so glorious.  Being a post-abortive woman, for years I found Advent and the Christmas season a time of great anxiety and sorrow.  While everyone was filled with the joy of the birth of Christ, I experienced fear, dread, and unending pain.  The New Year came as a relief knowing I did not have to deal with it all again for another twelve months.

1,025… 1,031… 1,033!

Just a few months ago we celebrated the birth of our 1,000th baby at Good Counsel – and the miracles keep coming!  At press time, we have been blessed with 1,033 babies! That’s 1,033 lives saved because of you!

Welcome Baby Joshua!  Joshua arrived on Tuesday, December 12th.  He weighed 6 lbs., 3 oz. and was 19 1/4 inches long.  He and mom are doing well! Read More

Let there be room at the inn!

Posted by | Dec 13, 2016 | No Comments

Christmas is a most joyous and blessed season!  Unless you’re scared, alone, pregnant, and living on the street. Jennie can tell you, “Everything changed when I found out I was pregnant.” Her boyfriend kicked her out. Her father refused to help. She was begging to sleep on friends’ couches.

Your compassion opened Good Counsel’s doors to her.

I didn’t have a fancy place to offer her. Sometimes all we have is a bed in the chapel. Good Counsel’s homes are humble, maybe like the humble surroundings where Our Lord and His blessed Mother spent their first Christmas, “because there was no room for them in the inn.” (Luke 2:7) Read More

We Need Your Help Now to Feed 100 Mothers & Babies

Posted by | Dec 1, 2016 | No Comments

Thanksgiving is over, but the Christmas season is in full swing!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to stuff the turkey! Our moms and babies thank you!

Sadly, our turkey did not get fully stuffed!  So far, we’ve raised $3,483 – less than half of our $8,400 goal.  However, we do have until the end of 2016 to meet our goal of $8,400 which will feed the 100 (and more each day) mothers and children in our six homes through the month of December.
