Since Chris Bell was inspired by Father Benedict Groeschel to put his considerable talents and energies to this task, the program has continued to grow and thrive. It is one of the very few charities which consistently uses donor funds to the maximum advantage through the use of volunteer and community resources. When you feel the urge to give and share your bounty with others, I strongly recommend you put Good Counsel at the top of your list.

I have counseled young pregnant women and those who choose abortion because they thought they had no other option. Many were afraid they would be trown out of their homes or abused by the father and were told that abortion was their only optioned. This started a downward spiral in their lives. All they wanted was support and a different option which Good Counsel home could have provided for them if only it was open in South Jersey. Please Support this alternative for women facing an unplanned pregnancy. Mary Anne B. Serra RN, ADN, BA

If the Good Counsel homes didn´t take the pregnant women who are homeless, both lives are endangered. The comprehensive care of Good Counsel Homes doesn´t just rescue, it provides a network of support and hope the the mother and child´s futures--both of them. What a blessing in our risk-filled world, and a wonder to behold in action. I invite all to visit a Good Counsel home in operation and witness the work. I may not give any names, but you will see the happiness and hope.

I am a sidewalk counselor at the Cherry Hill Women's Center. Women come to the clinic for abortions because they feel they have no other choice. They are scared and in crisis. Many have been told by a parent or boyfriend that if they continue with the pregnancy they will be kicked out of their homes. Good Counsel Homes is a place these girls can go to be safe. If they choose to keep their babies, they can take advantage of classes that will help them be better prepared to become parents. They are welcomed, not judged. They find acceptance. They learn to stand on their own two feet. Good Counsel Homes also offers post-abortion healing for those who are suffering due to a past abortion.

The Great!

They are building one in South Jersey and it is going slowly. They take girls from here to their other homes, but the girls don't want to go so far from the area they're used to. I would have them speed up the building process.

I worked as a House Director in a Transitional Home for Women in Crisis pregnancies. When I learned about Good Counsel and how they operate their homes, their philosophy, and their Christocentric Attitudes I have been an avid supporter ever since. Good Counsel conducts itself as an upstanding community organization while remaining faithful to Christ's Gospel message. They welcome women from all backgrounds and circumstances with open and loving arms. I have also been continually impressed by Good Counsel's various programs to help their client's succeed and establish themselves - both as mothers and in a workplace. Their transitional program that helps women move on to being self sufficient is well planned and executed.

The Great!

I have seen the impact that Good Counsel has had on the community and on other Maternity Homes that hope to emulate its methodology.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

GIve Mr. Bell a paid vacation - he works tirelessly and selflessly. I would also increase awareness - so that more women could be helped and more good samaritans could support them.
