Welcome to Seton Center

“Charity is not charity if not accompanied by justice.”           ~ St. Vincent DePaul

Mission Statement 

In the Spirit of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, our mission is to work with our neighbors to build a hopeful future.

 Vision Statement

Seton Center strives to be a leading community resource for the residents of northern Frederick County. We will:

  • Provide emergency support services
  • Serve as a catalyst for systemic change

Many of the families we serve are working people living at or below the poverty level. Often times people who work hard to be self-sufficient find that even a minor emergency can result in unpaid bills or loss of housing. Sponsored and staffed by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent DePaul, local residents and a myriad of volunteers, the Center provides services to all members of the community. Services are provided within the framework of the core values of the Daughters of Charity: reverence, integrity, generosity and unity.

At Seton Center we are committed to serving each client and customer with great hospitality and respect. We believe in the true meaning of charity which is love. Whether the need is advocacy, information, material or financial aid, or just a really great bargain, we seek to meet these needs with integrity so that all those seeking charity find an experience of love.

Seton Center’s programs:

  • Address basic human needs
  • Stem homelessness
  • Build strong, healthy families
  • Provide referral services
  • Maintain the health of seniors
  • Provide comfort to the homebound
  • Support the transition out of poverty

In continuous operation as a social service organization in our local communities since 1969, Seton Center programs and services fill the unmet needs that county and local governments, schools and other non-profits do not provide.
