A Sidewalk Counselor brings the hope of Christ

to the place without hope, the abortion facility

Houston Coalition for Life offers free Sidewalk Counselor Training.

Sidewalk Couselors reach out to women 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, providing the opportunity for a conversation, the sidewalk counselor offers life affirming assistance for both mother and child and redirecting them to free help in the community.

Get Involved

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 helpls women who may be at risk of aborting that very day.  Many women turn around when they realize there are resources available. They CAN have this baby!   Of over 12,000 women who have chosen life after receiving an ultrasound on one of our Blue Blossom Pregnancy Centers, many were directed there by a sidewalk counselor.

What is Sidewalk Counseling?

Being there as a witness to the dignity of the unborn child at the place where that dignity is most brutally denied: the abortion facility.
Being there to offer help and alternatives at the last possible moment before the mother and unborn child meet the abortionist.
