SETON Safety Net

Seton Safety Net – Food Outreach

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton was an American born saint. She was a wife, mother, educator, widow, nurse and foundress of the Sisters of Charity. During her life, she often had to depend on others to help her provide for her family and her fledgling community.

Today, senior citizens are often in need of a helping hand at a moment of shortfall. At times, the fixed income doesn’t quite meet the needs and the cupboard stands bare.

In 2005, the community outreach services of Light of Hearts Villa established the Seton Safety Net for seniors, a small food closet, to give our social worker the resources to meet such needs as they arise in our community.
