Total Donations as of November 16, 2018 – $4,040!
We asked and wow did you respond! We are so very grateful for everyone who contributed toward the matching grant Good Counsel received from the William E. Simon Foundation. The goal was $2,500 – but as of today, the moms and babies of Good Counsel will have $4,404 toward an enhanced and much-needed Work-Study Center!
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts & God bless you!
We will post updates on the project, so if you aren’t already, be sure to sign up for our email, so you don’t miss out on any news.
More About the Work-Study Center
The Work-Study Center will house eight work-study locations for moms with close access to their new babies and older children. While mom is studying or using a computer to look for and apply for jobs, their babies and other children will be nearby in the new play space which will be a fun and safe environment. Like most mothers who must multitask to accomplish what they need to during a day’s time, the moms at Good Counsel will have a clean, comfortable, well-equipped space to prepare for their new life and care for their children while doing so.
The project includes some construction and reconfiguring of the existing space, new flooring, and lighting, as well as proper heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. The finished Work-Study Center will have eight computer workstations, four with new computers, and four study stations, bookshelves, and a small microwave and refrigerator.
The play area will be a bright and cheerful space complete with a large exploration rug, educational toys and books, two changing tables, painting supplies, and other items that will create a not just a play space for the babies and children, but an active, engaging area where the children can perform their own “work-study.”
