I have known Chris Bell since before he began Good Counsel 25 years ago, and he is one of the most committed, sincere, and trustworthy persons I know. In helping Good Council with their video communication needs, I have come to appreciate even more the essential service Good Counsel does for young mothers and babies, and the quality, professionalism and dedication of the staff. They truly provide a healthy and home-like setting for those they serve.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

spending a day at two of the Good Counsel Homes and interviewing mothers served by them.

Good Counsel homes are homes for homeless unwed mothers and mothers-to-be. It is a home where women and children are welcomed, loved and cared for. There are currently four homes. There is even a home for moms who are not only homeless and pregnant, but also have a mental illness and may have an addiction. We are volunteers in their Bronx home but we love them all the same. Good Counsel really gives these girls the tools to become independent. We started spending time with a lovely young girl and her daughter from the Bronx home. Good Counsel was her home for over two years before she came to live with us for a few months. She is now living on her own and is engaged to a wonderful man who loves her and her daughter. He got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She always tells us that if it wasn't for Good Counsel she doesn't know where she would be now. We think of her as our daughter and her daughter is like our grandchild. Being involved with Good Counsel made us realize that not everyone is blessed to have wonderful parents and friends. The residents of Good Counsel are blessed to call this HOME .

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in seeing women move out to live on their own with jobs and daycare in place. The staff is just wonderful - I have had the opportunity to get to know many of them.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing how the women and children are cared for.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, kind, understanding and loving.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open more homes!!! : )

I called good counsel because I needed to do a college paper on a place that deals with crisis. I really didn't know exactly what they dealt with, but they came up in my google search. When I got there, I was a little nervous because I didn't know how I would be receieved. I have heard some horror stories. Well I must say they were great. The staff were very polite and they made me feel very comfortable. I talked to them about good counsel for almost 2 hours. I was also able to speak to one of the women that live there and to my surprise we had a very similar situation and felt a lot of the same pain and confusion. Good counsel is a very needed service. If you read their site, don't think it is theory or what they would like to accomplish. Good counsel is making a very big difference in the lives of a forgotten group of women. I loved the atmosphere, it was very homely. The resources they provide not only helps the women, but teaches the women how to help themselves. Being that the program is not restricted to a particular time frame, the women can stay there and continue to better themselves until they can successfully go out on their own. I think this place is amazing. I will be volunteering my time at this agency in the near future and hopefully for years to come.

The Great!

Although I have never needed the services of good counsel, I have researched the benefits of these practices. I strongly believe providing these services to a person that wants to better themself, could only bring a successful outcome.
