Description
•        Good Counsel is more than a home, it’s a new beginning. Through our programs, every woman receives the life skills training she needs to never be homeless again. We are a Catholic organization that provides housing for pregnant moms, their children and babies, while giving them the tools to get back on their feet and be a successful, strong parent.
•        We value the dignity of human life, integrity, excellence, respect, inclusivity and collaboration.

Good Counsel seeks to support women who are domestic violence survivors, those with severe mental illness, developmental disabilities, past trauma, histories of abortion, trafficking and transiency.
