Good Counsel, Inc.
November 30, 2010

Good Counsel, Inc. is more than a pregnancy care center; it is a place for a woman in crisis to find a home. When a pregnant mom comes to Good Counsel, she receives more than shelter; she receives medical care, parenting classes and job training assessments. She becomes part of a "family" that longs to see her succeed. When her baby is born, the mom can stay for a year or more, working on the parenting skills, the life skills, and the job skills that she needs to be a contributing part of society. She is helped to find a place to live and a job. Programs continue after she leaves, giving her a lifeline to continue her progress and a safety net to steady her.

The Great!

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

I have read the stories of the women whose lives have been changed and babies have been saved because of the care they received at Good Counsel. In addition to the food, shelter and training, the Good Counsel Homes organization also offers programs that help women heal from sexual trauma and abortion. It is one of a kind in its scope of helping the whole woman.

Ways to make it better...

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

find ways to fund the organization so more time could be spent on working with the moms and less on fundraising.
