OVERVIEW

Seneca’s programs in Washington State represent the agency’s first, and currently, only full-time presence outside of California. Seneca Washington was created to pursue cross-sector solutions to some of our communities’ most entrenched social problems, including the educational achievement gap, the intergenerational cycle of abuse and neglect, and the impact of trauma on life outcome.

Seneca partners with Seattle Public Schools and all eight charter public schools in the state to provide assistance in designing inclusive school-wide practices and systems with a focus on early identification and intervention. Our work is guided by Seneca’s Unconditional Education model, which offers a framework for integrated and multi-tiered systems of support that promote the academic, social-emotional and behavioral development of ALL students at each school. Seneca direct care staff - including Special Education teachers, therapists, school psychologists, student support counselors and other education specialists – are embedded within the existing school framework to support achievement of the best possible outcomes for students, no matter how challenging their needs and circumstances.

In addition to its school-based services, Seneca Washington continues to develop a continuum of supports that span the fields of child welfare, juvenile justice, and mental health. In partnership with King County and other community-based organizations (CBOs), Seneca is implementing an outreach program for commercially sexually exploited children (CSEC). The CSEC Outreach Program partners with schools, CBOs, and heath care providers to build the knowledge and capacity of school staff and other professionals to identify, engage, and respond to youth who are current or potential victims of commercial sexual exploitation.
