Maryvale's Seton House for Homeless Single Mothers

Health Net is thrilled to provide a grant to such an admirable organization like Maryvale. Their efforts are making a real difference in the lives of the women and mothers they serve who are experiencing homelessness, and we are honored to support them and enable the continuation of their work.

Maryvale today announced the receipt and implementation of grant funds from Health Net for Seton House, a program for homeless single mothers.

Maryvale is Los Angeles County’s longest-operating children’s charity. Established in 1856 by the Daughters of Charity, Maryvale was created to address the needs of orphaned and abandoned children in Los Angeles and today provides a range of mental health and early childhood education services. With the gifted funds from Health Net, Maryvale extends its mission of community-based assistance via Seton House.

Seton House provides safe, temporary housing specifically for single mothers with up to two children, each under the age of 10, who are facing homelessness. Along with individual resident rooms, families have access to a computer room, kitchen, multipurpose room, outdoor play yard, TV room, children’s playroom, and up to six months of services including group therapy sessions, individual counseling, and assistance with developing the necessary life skills to achieve long-term employment and permanent housing.

Health Net was one of the first supporters of Seton House and recognized the importance of the safety and security that the program provides for mothers and children facing homelessness. Last December, they donated $100,000 to Seton House at Maryvale, paying for the renovations on the kitchen and the multipurpose room at Seton House. This gift enabled Maryvale to launch the new program for a much-underserved population.

“Health Net is thrilled to provide a grant to such an admirable organization like Maryvale,” said Karen Richmond, Vice President, Medi-Cal Regional Lead. “Their efforts are making a real difference in the lives of the women and mothers they serve who are experiencing homelessness, and we are honored to support them and enable the continuation of their work," commented Ms. Richmond.

Health Net also recognized Seton House’s ability to help mothers with community linkages so they can achieve long-term employment and permanent housing, calling Seton House, “A program that sets them up for success.”

Ms. Richmond added, “as one of the state’s most experienced Medi‑Cal partners, we know healthcare starts at the community level and is best delivered locally. Partnering with local organizations, like Maryvale, perfectly aligns with our mission to transform the health of a community, one person at a time.”

Maryvale CFO/COO, Michael Couchman, stated, “with aligned missions of caring for the community one person at a time, we are grateful to Health Net for supporting Seton House at Maryvale. This generous grant affords us the opportunity to accomplish what we set out to do at Seton House – offer hope and restore dignity to mothers and their young children.” Mr. Couchman added, “thank you for partnering with Maryvale to help us meet our mission to heal, educate, and empower those who need us most, lifting up one individual, one family, one community at a time.”
