Seneca is committed to informing and improving the local, state and federal systems that serve children and families. Seneca’s broad geographic range and continuum of mental health, permanency, education and juvenile justice services position the agency as a leader in shaping public policy. This work can take many forms: local county-level advocacy; tracking or sponsoring statewide legislation; participation in statewide advisory councils; developing partnerships or coalitions to advance innovative systems-change ideas, and more.

There are many ways for Seneca staff, supporters and families to stay informed about Seneca’s policy work and to get involved by making your voice heard. If you have additional comments or questions, please contact Emily Higgs, Senior Policy Analyst.  To receive updates through social media connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
