2022 Annual Appeal

One of the marks that God is at work in our Mission is that we watch our
residents flourish at the Mother of Good Counsel Home, even through
the aging process. We are the witnesses of life flourishing unto eternal life!
We need your support to continue this amazing, God-given Mission.
A stable future for a flourishing Mission requires we build a charitable
fund for purposes our annual revenue does not support.

This focus and our not-for-profit approach to ministry,
leave the following needs unmet.

A Beautiful House

The Lord provided a beautiful building and surroundings at the Mother of Good Counsel Home, which have been developed and refined over 90 years. However, as with any physical campus, continued and prudent investment is necessary to maintain its value and integrity into the future. Thoughtful upkeep and strategic enhancements to buildings, equipment, furnishings, and surroundings will continue the tradition of providing a safe and beautiful environment where our residents can flourish in their later years.

Flourishing of Life Formation Program

Beyond maintaining the core operations of a Skilled Nursing organization, God calls us to form people for Mission. Therefore, all of our employees are called “Mission Partners.” To make this name a reality in their lives, we spend intentional time educating, mentoring, and accompanying those who provide hands-on care for our residents. The cost of this work includes leadership time, educational materials, speakers, etc. In addition, we educate and support the many family members and loved ones of our residents.

Open Arms

Once we accept a resident into our care, we will never send them away, even when their resources are exhausted. This is sadly something that happens in other facilities. We provide on average over $800,000 in uncompensated care every year. Nothing changes for a resident when he or she can no longer financially support their care. While this is something we are called to do, our commitment requires a deep trust in God’s providence and in the generosity of others, like yourself.

Who are we?

We are a Catholic skilled nursing facility serving the St. Louis and surrounding areas since 1932. We have 11 Sisters and over 100 staff members, which we call Mission Partners.

Just like we call our staff Mission Partners, we call our donors Mission Supporters. We would love to add you to our growing list of Mission Supporters who allow the Sisters to carry out their Mission here at the Mother of Good Counsel Home.
