Children thrive when rooted in safe, nurturing 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. While the first goal of permanency is to keep children with their family of origin, our continuum of permanency programs include foster care, relative kinship care, visitation services, family finding, and adoption. 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.Training Calendar and Registration
