Seton Home is a 24-hour shelter and wraparound services for pregnant and parenting teen mothers, ages 12-17 and their babies who have experienced trauma, neglect, and abuse.
The mission of Seton Home is to break the cycle of abuse and poverty by providing a caring home, education, and support services necessary to transform the lives of pregnant and parenting teen mothers and their children. Eligible mothers are between the ages of 12 – 17 and are pregnant or parenting a child under the age of three.
Once a pregnant or parenting mother and child arrives on our doorstep, a team of professionals welcome her with love and compassion to immediately address her trauma, and put her on a path to healing. A case manager begins intake with an assessment and plan for care. Clinicians then step in to care for her mental health and trauma. With the help of pregnant and parenting educators and counselors, our mothers learn life skills in pregnancy and parenting, health, household management, financial literacy, and much more.
