Children thrive when rooted in safe, loving homes. Every child needs and deserves the meaningful, lifelong connections of a permanent, loving family -- connections referred to by child welfare professionals as permanency. Seneca provides an array of permanency-focused programs and services to help ensure that every child has a safe and loving place to call home. Our continuum of permanency programs include foster care and adoption, relative kinship care, and family finding. Developed and practiced over the past three decades, Seneca's evidence-informed permanency programs help ensure that each and every child, no matter how challenging their needs and circumstances, has a family to support and nurture them through childhood and into adulthood.

There are more than 60,000 children in foster care in California. Some will return to their birth families, but many rely on agencies like Seneca to find a safe home and a loving family that will be there for life.
