Mission Statement

Good Counsel is a family for those in need, serving God who is the father of the orphan, defender of the widow, and who gives the lonely a home to lvie in (PSALM 68). Our Lord's call to serve the disadvantaged compels us to advocate on behalf of single mothers and their children and to offer love, shelter, and the opportunity to grow in self-respect and independence. We invoke the patronage of Mary, the Lady of Good Counsel, to help us protect mothers in need and to love their children from the moment of conception.

Description

We provide a home like atmosphere and an individualized and comprehensive continuum of support in a maternity setting. Good Counsel Staff show our mothers that they are part of a family by giving them unconditional love. The mothers share the household responsibilities of cooking, cleaning, and other chores. We help a mother and her family take the next step toward a healthy lifestyle. A pregnant woman may live in a Good Counsel home for a year, sometimes longer if necessary and if she is accomplishing her goals. Our setting provides the opportunity for the mother to become empowered and be supported as she moves from homelessness and working as a member of the community. We have Life Skills classes and they are Spirituality, Chastity, Nutrition, Parenting, Health, and Social Skills and this helps to guide them for their independence.
