Seneca Family of Agencies is a statewide non-profit agency dedicated providing quality mental health services to children and families throughout California. Since 1985, Seneca has established itself as an innovative leader in the provision of unconditional care for children and families experiencing high levels of trauma who are at risk for family disruption.
Seneca's Central Coast Programs, ...known as Kinship Center, build adoptive and other families where children can heal from past abuse, neglect or abandonment and grow to healthy adulthood. We help 2,500 children each year, mostly those whom many others consider too difficult: severely traumatized children, older teenagers, children with disabilities, large sibling groups, and drug affected infants. Every child deserves a family, and Kinship Center makes it happen.
