The Mother Seton House in Fryeburg is a non-profit home for pregnant women and new mothers in difficult circumstances. The organization offers education, counseling, and support to all women in need regardless of race or religion, providing a safe and comfortable haven for women as they prepare to give birth and nurture their newborns.
“This safe, secure environment provides women with a chance to build confidence and acquire the skills needed to break the cycle of poverty,” said Cyndi Broyer, director of Mother Seton House. “We help moms learn about cooking, nutrition, baby care, child development, budgeting, and housekeeping. Anything moms tells us they want to learn.”
The house depends on volunteers and donations for its ministry. Every dollar counts and makes a real difference.
