Seton Home began in the late 1970s as a dream which, when realized, would meet a real need in San Antonio and the surrounding areas. At that time, there was no facility that could readily meet the specific needs of pregnant teenagers in crisis who wanted to keep and parent their child.
Seton Home, named in honor of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American-born saint, officially opened its doors on March 5, 1981, at 309 N. Alamo Street. The agency provided services in that location until 1987.
In response to a growing need for services to pregnant teens in 1987, the Archdiocese gave the agency use of three acres at 1115 Mission Road, which is our current location. With expansion of our services and client base, Seton Home now sits on eight acres and includes three cottages, a state licensed Child Development Center, chapel, the Dr. Leslie Parks Education Center, a sports court and administrative buildings. Today Seton Home serves 24 families who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect and sexual assault and are placed by Child Protective Services.
Seton Home is proud of the progress that is evident in the years that have passed since our doors first opened in 1981. With your help we will continue to grow and give new hope to teen mothers and their children.
