“Charity is not charity if not accompanied by justice.” ~ St. Vincent DePaul
OUR NEW DIGS!
The NEW Seton Center Outreach Office and Seton Family Store are now open at our new location, 226 East Lincoln Avenue, Emmitsburg MD 21727! We are deeply grateful to the Daughters of Charity for providing such a beautiful space in which to continue serving our community! Due to limited space, an invitation-only Ribbon Cutting and Dedication event will be held on Tuesday, July 10.
The construction schedule moved quickly thanks to favorable winter weather. Morgan-Keller Construction is a general contracting and construction management firm with offices in Frederick and Columbia, Maryland. Designed by MSB Architects of Hagerstown, MD, this building project involves the construction of a new 13,000 square foot building to house the Outreach Office, Seton Family Store and a large meeting room for workshops and presentations.

Our mission is to work with our neighbors to build a hopeful future, in the Spirit of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton.
Seton Center strives to be a leading community resource for the residents of northern Frederick County by providing emergency support services and serving as a catalyst for systemic change.
Many of the families we serve are working people living at or below the poverty or ALICE Report income levels. 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 many 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 a great bargain, we strive 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

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.
