Zachariah decided to arrive in serious dramatic fashion on July 10th at 4:48 a.m. At just 29 weeks, mom Erica, required an emergency C-section for the health and safety of both mom and baby. Zachariah arrived weighing just 1 pound, 10 ounces and was 16 inches long. He was quickly moved to the NICU. We asked for prayers on social media and the response was overwhelming – thank you!

July 2017 - Good Counsel
Not many of us like to hear the word No.
Now imagine that you are pregnant, homeless, and suffering from a mental illness or addiction.
The word “no” can be deadly for you and your baby!
Some residential programs require a 30 day waiting period before entering. If Good Counsel waited 30 days before opening our door, there is no telling what would happen to the mother and child. I don’t want their deaths on my conscience and I’m sure you want to do all that you can to help also. Read More
