Elizabeth Seton Center
Serving Pittsburgh for over three decades
Elizabeth Seton Center grew out of the inspiration of Mother Elizabeth Seton and the witness of her Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill who commit their lives to bringing the Gospel and education to children and to caring for the sick and elderly. It is our mission to be a magnet center of intergenerational lifelong learning where people of all ages can gather to learn, to change, and to grow in body, mind and spirit.
Ours is a family-centered tradition which inspires our commitment to welcome each child and senior, engaging each person in light of his or her particular needs. The smiles that pervade the Center each day testify to the positive environment where our people flourish.
Providing planned, intergenerational activities flows from our family-centered Seton heritage. From the start, Mother Elizabeth Seton and our Sisters blended care of the young and infirmed. At Seton Center we have the privilege and opportunity to do this in the same buildings. Bridging the generations is especially relevant today when extended families stretch across the country and beyond. By working together, young and elderly grow in respect and appreciation for one another. The smiles that result testify to the importance of these interactions.
Seton Center is committed to intergenerational programming for children and seniors. Both generations come together regularly to interact with one other, work on activities and share fun experiences. Children and seniors benefit from these relationships by enhancing social skills in children, fostering friendships between generations, stimulating learning in both groups and increased memory and motor usage in seniors. Simply watching their smiling faces is clear evidence of the joy created when the generations mingle. Seton Center is one of the few organizations in Pittsburgh that utilizes intergenerational programming to create a sense of family that supports and encourages multiple generations through intentional and regular interactions. that support and encourage multiple generations through intentional and regular interactions.
