Seneca is dedicated to the unconditional care of children in foster care. Our three foster care programs meet the needs of a diverse group of children from age 0-21 and also provide outstanding support to our foster parents who have a variety of skills, hopes and dreams.


Some, like our Seneca Foster Care parents in Southern California and Kinship Foster Care parents, wish to foster or adopt infants, toddlers and school-aged children. Others, like our Professional Parents greet the challenge of providing support, guidance, and reassurance to one high-risk teenager in a focused six-month commitment. Still others, like our Intensive Services Foster Care foster/resource parents are ready to commit to fostering a school-aged child for whatever period of time is necessary to achieve stability and permanence, either through adoption or reunification to the biological family.

For a description of each of these programs, please click here: Foster Care Program Details
