January 2017 - Good Counsel

Help our moms and babies to be safe and warm this winter

Posted by | Jan 31, 2017 | No Comments

There is never a good time to be homeless and pregnant, and certainly the winter season is the WORST time!

In the northeast there are often dangerously cold evenings where both mother and baby’s health are at risk, and Good Counsel always strives to say YES to any pregnant mother in dire need.

During this winter season, Good Counsel has a goal to raise $8,250 for its Heating Campaign. That is what it costs to heat our five northern homes during these cold winter months. Can you please help our moms and babies to be safe and warm this winter? Read More

Partnering Changes Lives

Posted by | Jan 28, 2017 | No Comments

You know Good Counsel’s homes for pregnant moms and their children are open 24/7.  A woman in trouble at midnight can call and come in our door.  There is never a slow season. Every day, every week, every month, only with your help, Good Counsel staff is ready to change lives by caring for both the mother and child who enter one of our residences.

I thank God for you and that’s why I am asking you to consider becoming a Good Counsel Partner for Life.  You’ve already partnered with me in this ministry for mothers and babies. You’ve invested in life, giving desperate mothers a way to say “yes” to life for their babies.  But, today I am asking you to really make a concerted effort to change lives!

As a Good Counsel Partner for Life you will transform the life of a mother and child… every month. Read More

Our homes are at capacity – and growing!

Dear Friend,

Without your generous financial support, 59 new babies would not have been celebrated at Good Counsel in 2016!  Your compassion helped their mothers choose LIFE. Were it not for your compassion and generosity, precious babies would never have been born.

When you give to Good Counsel, you’re welcoming a mom in crisis. You’re giving her the courage to deliver her baby. You’re making a place where she can nurture her newborn, learn to be a great mom, and become self-sufficient so that one day soon, she can step out on her own with her child. Read More
