Seton, President of Chance International Outreach, is our featured guest speaker.  Chance International Outreach is a Minnesota based non-profit organization established to rescue young girls, women and children in Liberia who are in unsafe situations.  Its mission is to equip and empower young girls and women to achieve their full potential by providing opportunities that will help them succeed through any difficulties or crisis they may be experiencing.

Seton is the mother of three and grandmother of four. Evelyn holds a certificate in Culinary Art as well as Caregiving and currently works as a Caregiver.

She was born in Liberia, West Africa and migrated to Minnesota in 1992 as a refugee from the brutal civil war in her country.  Despite getting out of Liberia safely in 1992, it took more than a year before she knew the whereabouts of her children.  One of her children and two of her grandchildren are still in Liberia.

Seton established Chance International Outreach to help make a difference in the lives of young women in Liberia.  Their plight is exceptionally difficult as Liberia is emerging from a brutal civil war and an outbreak of the Ebola virus.  Chance International Outreach rescues young girls and their babies by providing a stable & safe environment for them that allows them to obtain a basic education, learn basic computer skills, as well as getting training in culinary arts, cosmetology, and sewing.
