Seneca Family of Agencies (formerly Seneca Center) was founded in 1985 as a small Bay Area residential and day treatment program with a simple but powerful mission: to help children and families through the most difficult times of their lives. Since then, Seneca has expanded to provide a broad continuum of permanency, mental health, education, and juvenile justice services, which today reach over

18,000 youth and families throughout California and Washington State each year. Seneca’s growth has been guided by a commitment to our Unconditional Care model. For over three decades, Seneca has worked to help children and families through the most challenging times of their lives. We offer a simple promise to each youth and every family we serve: no matter how profound the difficulties you face, we will be with you every step of the way. We recognize and celebrate our families and teammates’ strengths and differences as part of our collaboration to uplift our communities. Seneca continuously strives to be a culturally responsive leader and ally. Recently, we have been honored to lead a nationwide effort, Todo Por Mi Familia, a campaign to find and connect asylum-seeking families to mental health services.

Our Story

Seneca Family of Agencies was founded in 1985 by advocates who wanted to better meet the needs of children in group homes and foster family care. Seneca established itself as an innovative leader in the provision of unconditional care through a comprehensive continuum of school, community-based and family-focused treatment services for children and families experiencing high levels of trauma who are at risk for family disruption or institutional care for the children. In 2011, a strategic merger with Kinship Center formed Seneca Family of Agencies. In 2012, Canyon Acres Ranch was incorporated into the Orange County programs of Kinship Center, expanding the local base of mental health, wraparound, child placement, family finding and professional and parent training services. Kinship Center, founded in 1984, specializes in adoption, foster care, family-based services, child and family mental health care, along with parent and professional post graduate training. The merger into Seneca Family of Agencies expands Kinship Center's landmark work in California of creating, supporting, educating and providing mental health services to families built by adoption and relative caregiving. Canyon Acres has a 31-year history of serving children and families throughout Southern California, providing the highest level of care and therapeutic treatment to children who suffer from a variety of emotional and psychological disorders. The Canyon Acres Ranch Children’s Treatment Center in Orange County features a variety of therapeutic care programs that include child placement, mental health services and animal assisted therapy through an equine riding program. The joining of these organizations creates one of the most comprehensive service systems for children in California. Seneca Family of Agencies’ continuum of care now includes: in-home wraparound; foster family-based treatment; adoption and foster care; mobile crisis response; kinship care; integrated day treatment and special education services; after-school therapeutic recreation programming; public school-based mental health services; therapeutic mental health services -including pet assisted psychotherapy; intensive and preventive treatment for at-risk children and families; family finding for foster children; and nurturing residential treatment.
