Reviews for Seton Home For Pregnant Women

Rating: 5 stars  

I lived at seton home in 2004-2005. I was a young "hard headed" teenage mother whom at the time didnt realize what setonhome was doing for me. Looking back i am so blessed i was placed there. They helped me care for my child, learn how to be a parent, how to manage, how to stay strong. They helped me with childcare, with finishing my high school education. And to this day thay still help me! I am so blessed and thank ful there is an organization like seton here in san antonio texas. We need it!

Former Resident



As 15 year old, with an 18 month old son, drug addict mother, no father, no support, no parenting skills, and no steady home, CPS decided it was in my best interest to place me at Seton Home. I was so upset, because to me the way I was living was “normal”. I thought it was “okay” for me to be a 15 year old dropout and bounce from house to house with a baby. I thought, “He’s too small it won’t affect him”. I figured as long as I put a bottle in his mouth whenever he cried and changed his diaper here and there, I was doing a great job. I entered Seton Home as a lost, confused, and ignorant mother with abandonment issues and left as a strong woman, amazing mother, with so much purpose. Seton Home took me in, taught me responsibility, how to cook, how to manage my time, how to make doctors app., they provided me with group therapy, individual therapy, parenting classes, etiquette classes, art classes, prepared me for the workforce, and even helped me get back in school and later join college. I was only there for about 1year and it was the biggest blessing ever. I am now 21 years old, my son is 6. I am a single mother, My Son and i live alone on the north side of town in a good area, with good schools, and i work at a law office doing secretarial/paralegal work. Thanks to the therapist at Seton Home, who inspired me to be a therapist I am attending SAC and majoring in Psych. Without Seton Home I don’t Know where or even who I would be. Thank You Seton Home! Thank you Roberta, for being so sweet to me, you are such an angel.

I was referred to Seton Home and I couldn't be more thankful. Seton Home has helped me stand on my own two feet and they have given me a better outlook on my independent future. Many thanks to Seton Home and all of their staff.

I wouldn't change a thing.
