Dear Friend,

Amelia’s birth mother had been murdered. Her adoptive mother died. Her boyfriend left. She was pregnant and scared—

By God’s grace, she found Good Counsel. And thanks to your generosity, Good Counsel was able to open its doors, lift her spirits, and assure her, “You‘re not alone!”

A few days ago, she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces! She named him Zion, a biblical name that means “Rise up!” How fitting! Her little guy is a wonderful picture of how Amelia has risen up from the ashes of her former life. She is working very hard to make a new life for herself and for her son. Read More

We love to share stories with you about what goes on at a Good Counsel home.  We love to show you what is accomplished because of your prayerful and faithful support.  Recently, some of our New York staff visited Good Counsel Mary’s Shelter Gulf Coast and the agenda was packed. But, you never know what’s going to happen on a visit to a Good Counsel Home!

The marathon of meetings was interrupted not once, not twice, but three times!  In the span of just a couple of hours, three moms began experiencing labor pains and were taken to the hospital via ambulance!  How exciting!  One staff member who was tasked with taking photos and video on the visit, had his video camera ready for the controlled chaos that ensued. Watch this video to see a “typical” day at Good Counsel. Read More
