St. Elizabeth Ann Seton House Program

Thank you for your interest in the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton House Transitional Housing Program. Seton House provides case management and temporary housing for single women and single mothers with young children (0-12 years old). The goal of the program is to assist clients in transitioning to permanent living environments. Individuals may stay in the program up to two years. A monthly program fee is required. Units are furnished and include kitchen, bath and sleeping areas.
