How Seton Home impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision
Seton provides a safe home for girls, ages 12 to 18, who are pregnant and/or parenting, the majority of whom have been removed from their homes by CPS due to severe abuse, neglect or sexual assault. Since its establishment in 1981, Seton is the only state-licensed 24-hour residential facility with significant capacity in Bexar County focused exclusively on the needs of these fragile young families. Seton provides a holistic dual generational approach. The program encapsulates everything from job skills training, high school completion, financial literacy, child development, pregnant and parenting education, health, household management, spiritual guidance, and individual and group therapy sessions to address their trauma and begin the healing process. Our goal is to provide a supportive environment in which our young moms are equipped with the skills they need to become nurturing parents in order to break the generational cycle of abuse and neglect;guide them into self-sufficiency ensuring they are capable of caring for their families upon leaving our facility through education and job skills training;and engender stable, food secure, and child safe households for every mom and child that transitions from Seton Home.
