Seton Home was established in response to the critical unmet need of hundreds of parenting teens who have experienced a history of abuse and trauma, with no shelter or opportunities for obtaining parenting and life skills that enable them to become nurturing parents and productive citizens.

In an average year Seton Home assists approximately 96 girls and their babies in our long term residential home. At present, we have the capacity for 24 families. In some cases, residents may stay at Seton Home through the age of 22, reaping a greater benefit of our services, and increasing their future stability.
