Mission Statement

Our mission inspires us to care for and improve the health of those we serve with a special concern for the sick and the poor. We are called to be a sign of God's unconditional love for all and believe that all persons by their creation are endowed with dignity. Seton continues the Catholic tradition of service established by our founders: Vincent de Paul, Louise de Marillac and Elizabeth Ann Seton.

Project SEARCH at Seton Healthcare Family is an innovative approach for preparing and training young adults with intellectual disabilities for the competitive workforce. Through a yearlong internship, Project SEARCH offers each participant the opportunity to develop their vocational skills in a business setting, while building a solid foundation of professional experience.

Initially implemented in the fall of 2007, Project SEARCH at Seton was the first of its kind in Texas. It is supported by a unique collaboration among business, education, rehabilitation and disability service providers. The ultimate goal for participants is competitive employment.

Project SEARCH is a living embodiment of what we mean when we talk about Humancare at Seton Healthcare Family. We value the talents, contributions, and gifts of every member of our community, and are committed to advancing healthcare through a focus on the dignity of each individual.

Thank you for your generosity and the impact it is making in your hometown!

"If it weren't for Project SEARCH, I would probably still be looking for a job. Now I get to interact with different people every day and help them, even when they're having a bad day," Lena, 2015 Project SEARCH graduate

"We learned new work skills and how to be more independent both at our jobs and in the community. (Project SEARCH) prepared me to earn a living and help my family," Roberto, 2014 Project SEARCH graduate.
