It's one thing to be a homeless person, it's another thing to be homeless and pregnant, and to decide to do the right thing and keep your baby. Unfortunately, that is a choice that is not only very hard to make, it is very hard to do. Good Counsel is a homeless shelter for pregnant women. What I love about the program is it gives the women a new chance at living a normal life and becoming great mothers who not only care for their babies, but contribute to society. The fact that they are a shelter for a woman who is down and out is one thing, but what they do is teach the woman how to be a good mother to their baby. Then they educate them to prepare them to support themselves and their baby in the workforce. Then they help them get an apartment and begin to live life on their own. What a turn around from a life on the streets! This organization astonishes me because it takes a totally helpless woman and turns them into a productive member of society and instills religion in their life as well, which is crucial for maintaining the struggle with everyday problems.

The Great!

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

I see and get to know the women and their babies. It is amazing to see them come to the shelter homeless and pregnant, and then watch the transformation in them as they have their babies and become educated on how to be good mothers and good employees. After months of training, they are totally different from when they first step through the door.

Ways to make it better...

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

Give them millions of dollars to help fund their current operations and to expand the number of houses in the tri-state area. This organization transforms lives. And it is greatly needed for giving homeless pregnant women a second chance at life. A rebirth.
