Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There is a shortage of adequate facilities & services, as well as limited accessibility to mental health counseling, to address the effects of victimization for pregnant/parenting adolescents. The majority of agencies who might foster an abused or neglected teenager do not have the housing available or services required for one who is not only abused and/or neglected, but also pregnant or parenting. Compared with their peers who delay childbearing, teen girls who have babies’ are: •less likely to receive prenatal care •less likely to finish high school; •less likely to get or keep a job; •more likely to rely on public assistance; •more likely to be live below 150% of the federal poverty level; •teen mothers are prone to a variety of health risks such as: anemia, hypertension, STDs, & pre & postpartum depression; •more likely to have their children removed from home & placed in foster care due to incidences of maltreatment

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Therapy and Case Management Services

We provide a trauma-based counseling program that includes individual and group therapy and 24 hour crisis intervention. Intake assessments are implemented to evaluate our young moms mental health and develop personalized treatment plans. Each client participates in weekly individual and group therapy sessions targeting issues such as anger management, substance abuse and sexual abuse.

Population(s) Served

In an effort to ensure our girls have better livelihood options for themselves and their children, they are required to enroll in school or GED classes within three days of arriving on campus. Classes are offered on-site via our partnership with the UT Charter School System. A scholarship endowment fund is available to provide financial assistance for the residents interested in continuing their education and or career development at a college or through vocational training schools.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth

We provide a holistic health approach which ensures our moms and babies have access to healthcare services at all times, within their first week of arrival, all moms and babies receive a full medical examination to ensure they are in full health and to address any necessary needs either mom or baby may have. Dental, vision, prenatal and postpartum services are scheduled by the medical coordinator to ensure our residents have access to healthcare as needed. Given our moms have endured severe traumatic situations, a big part of our health aspect focuses on mental health - facilitating individual and group counseling sessions that enable each resident to address and work through her trauma.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Seton Home provides a safe home for girls, ages 12-17 who are pregnant and/or parenting, the majority of whom have been removed from their homes by Child Protective Services due to severe abuse, neglect or sexual assault.

Our holistic dual generational program seeks to cover all basic necessities to help our teen mothers and their babies heal from their histories of abuse and empower them to self-sufficiency.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

We offer a diversified program portfolio to ensure our young mothers are equipped with the knowledge and skills to provide a safe, nurturing and food secure environment for her children.

Our programs include: (1) Mommy & Me - a program that allows young moms to interact with their children in individual and group exercises that are geared towards creating stronger mother baby bonds. Having undergone severe abuse and neglect our young mothers benefit from added opportunities to form strong bonds with their babies, as most never had an opportunity to develop that with their parents. (2) Through Mommy’s Place – a program that seeks to teach young teen mothers basic financial literacy skills, they learn the importance of savings, money management, income earning and monetary transactions for goods at the in-kind store where they are able to purchase goods by saving their Seton Dollars, which they obtain through a rewards system.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Seton Home is a licensed childcare provider and operates a state-of-the-art childcare facility on campus, permitting our moms to continue their education. Through a partnership with the City of San Antonio we now offer Early Head Start as part of our child development program.

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals:
-To provide shelter, food, clothing & other essential necessities (hygiene products, school supplies, etc.)
-Facilitate trauma informed counseling to support the emotional needs of teen mothers & their children
-Provide parenting education in an effort to help them build stronger, nurturing bonds with their children, helping break the generational abuse cycle
-Conduct life skills workshops that equip mothers with skills to manage a household, care for their children, obtain a job & become self-sufficient
-Ensure that all girls continue their education or work on attaining their GED via our partnership with UT Charter School System

Seton Home provides a safe shelter with staff that are trained in an evidenced based approach for trauma informed care. The staff promote healing through trust building, healthy attachment skills, and life skills. Seton Home has a host of comprehensive services to include mental health counseling, case management, parenting education, on-site childcare for the babies, and spirituality services. We attempt to utilize best practices with all of our service deliveries.

Seton Home has an expansive campus with 32 efficiency styled apartments for families and 8 smaller rooms for expecting mothers. The campus is maintained for safety by facility staff.

We have a successful education program to include an on-site charter school in partnership with The University of Texas, year round tutoring, and education-specific case management. The on-site Child Development Center is state-licensed, so moms may leave their babies and attend school.

Since July 1st, more than 360 individual counseling sessions have been conducted addressing trauma issues; over 290 individual and 22 group parenting education sessions were performed covered everything from breastfeeding, infant massages and care, managing pre and post fears of labor, child health and nutrition and post-partum depression.
