Houston Coalition for Life offers a FREE Sidewalk Counselor Training.
Because of Covid-19, Houston Coalition for Life is working with Sidewalk Counselors to be flexible and navigate the new legal and health guidelines issued by the local and state authorities.
They reach out to girls facing a crisis pregnancy just moments before they enter the abortion facility. Each sidewalk counselor begins with prayer and then compassionately and calmly approaches the vehicles entering the parking lot of the abortion facility. When a car window rolls down, the sidewalk counselor offers life affirming assistance for both mother and child and redirecting them to free help in the community.
Sidewalk Counselors have a unique partner in the HCL’s Mobile Blue Blossom Pregnancy Centers that are usually available right there on the street to offer free pregnancy test and free ultrasounds. This powerful ministry interacts with girls who are sometimes at risk of aborting that very day. And many girls turn around when they realize there are resources available. They CAN have this baby! Of over 10,000 girls who have chosen life after receiving an ultrasound on one of our Blue Blossom Pregnancy Center, many were directed there by a sidewalk counselor.
As of March 20, 2021, masks are optional. We do encourage sidewalk counselors to have a mask on hand because masks are still required at the Big Blue Bus and Baby Blue. And it can be helpful to encourage those with masks to come talk with you.
