Review for Good Counsel Inc, Hoboken, NJ, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

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.

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

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.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
