The Pro-Life Union also welcomed two new member organizations a few months ago in September 2019—Save a Life International and Good Counsel Homes. These organizations share our mission of fostering a cohesive vision and strategy for a Culture of Life, as well as our belief statements.
Save a Life International is a pro-life non-profit based in the United States. They support women in crisis in Eastern Europe and beyond its borders including the U.S. Their support includes crisis pregnancy support, violence and domestic abuse assistance, and humanitarian aid for mothers and their children. They also aim to educate youth about sexual integrity and the sanctity of life. For more information, visit their website at savealifeintl.org.
Good Counsel Homes is a nationally recognized nonprofit leader and innovator in creating supportive residential care and community-based services for homeless, expectant, and new mothers and their children in the context of the Catholic social tradition. Pregnant and expectant mothers, with or without other born children, including mothers with mental health or addiction challenges, from any location, are able to receive help in a Good Counsel home. Their headquarters are located in Hoboken, New Jersey, where Good Counsel Homes was founded as an outreach program in 1985 and continues to flourish to this day. Good Counsel now has five homes: four in New York counties (Bronx, Richmond, Westchester, and Rockland) and one in Burlington County, New Jersey. For more information, visit their website at goodcounselhomes.org.
