08092903 8C24 459F 9AD9 E0D8482F01DDGood Counsel Homes was originally founded to address the needs of homeless, pregnant women in New York in 1985.  Fourhomes are currently operational in the New York Metropolitan Area and in South Jersey.

Since formation, Good Counsel has had 1,219 babies born to resident moms, 15 just this year so far.   Our mothers can stay a year or longer after their baby is born.  While in residence mothers have earned their GEDs, and graduated from  NursingSchool, Culinary School, Real Estate School, and Clinical Nursing Programs.  Other Moms have attended community and county colleges, and other work related programs while working part time or full time jobs. Staffed 24/7, Good Counsel provides a family like atmosphere with all residents sharing the responsibilities of taking care of the home.   Our mothers participate in a Life Skills Program with weekly classes on nutrition, post/pre-natal education, general parenting, chastity, spirituality, finances, job preparedness, and health and computer skills.  The goal of all Good Counsel Homes is to help find the residents full time employment, safe and secure housing and to become financially and physically independent while becoming contributing members of society. 

If you are interested in contributing to our mission in Pro-life ministry and breaking the cycle of homelessness , please consider becoming a monthly donor by calling 201.795.0637, visit our website  

We thank you for your faithful prayerful and financial support as we do what Jesus asks us to do… “to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and shelter the homeless.

God bless you.
