Pregnant? Need Help?

First Time Visiting?

Since 1985 we’ve helped more than 8,000 homeless women and children move from a crisis situation to receive concrete help and build a brighter future.

What started as an unexpected encounter between Chris Bell and a young, homeless mother in New York City, has grown into a group of maternity homes called Good Counsel.

Please join us as we continue to help many pregnant mothers in great need while building a culture of life!
