Seneca Family of Agencies (formerly Seneca Center) 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.
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.
