Have you ever received help from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton?*

Thank you for submitting your application.  A representative from the Outreach Office will contact you within 1-2 business days to schedule an appointment.  An interview will be required before any financial assistance is offered; you will need to complete additional paperwork at that time.  Please note that our office has a limited budget and will likely not be able to assist with rent, however we are happy to offer you alternative resources/referrals.  At this time, we are most able to assist with utility or other similar cost items, but no guarantees can be made until a representative has interviewed you.

SEAS BABY CLOSET

Baby Closet

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Outreach has partnered with Catholic Charities Gabriel Project to create the SEAS Baby Closet. The closet is a resource for mothers in crisis pregnancies. We provide both supplies for mothers and for their babies/other children. Some of the items we offer include clothes up to size 5T, toiletries, diapers, wipes, and other more.

We are continuously accepting donations of all kinds to stock our shelves. Currently, our greatest needs include:

  • Baby shampoo and lotion
  • Toiletries for moms
  • Diaper Cream
  • Wipes
  • New Pacifiers
  • Winter Clothing for Boys
  • Winter Clothing for Girls 

We take most items used, with the exceptions being used mattresses, car seats, breast pump tubing, bottles, and pacifiers. We do ask that all used items are in very good condition, with no stains, tears, or heavy wearing. We also do not accept large furniture donations due to storage space constraints. If you want to donate your time instead, we are always in need of volunteers. If you are interested, please contact Allison Payne at
