Seton Home is a licensed residential basic care facility chartered by the State of Texas and licensed by the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services as a Basic Child Care Facility. Since 1981, Seton Home has been the only licensed facility in South Texas with significant capacity that focuses services exclusively for homeless and abused pregnant and parenting teens who have chosen to keep and parent their children. Our caring staff tailors each plan of services to the individual needs of our young moms with the goal of preparing her to manage life on her own in a loving environment for her child.
We transform lives through:
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.
