As a nationally recognized and Joint Commission-accredited organization, Seneca Family of Agencies strives to stay ahead of the curve and respond to communities as they strive to meet the needs of their most vulnerable children and families. Seneca administrators and program staff analyze the underlying issues in each community, not only to support vulnerable families in need, but to anticipate and prevent situations that place other children and families at risk of extreme hardship and failure.


With over 1,000 staff working in 50 locations throughout California, Seneca Family of Agencies, which now incorporates the established programs of Kinship Center and Canyon Acres, offer one of the most comprehensive and highly-respected child and family service systems in the state. Seneca’s Institute for Advanced Practice, moreover, trains child welfare, behavioral health and juvenile justice professionals in a wide range of evidence-based and promising practices, in order to strengthen the larger systems of care for our most vulnerable and highest-need children, youth and their families.
