Review for Good Counsel Inc, Hoboken, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

happy mothers who are able to choose life and not be coerced into abortion

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

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.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I have referred girls to Good Counsel Homes.
