The Family Partner provides peer support to family members of youth receiving community-based services through Seneca. The Family Partner must have personal experience raising a child who has received services. These services can include Special Education, Mental Health Services, Human Services such as CPS or Child Welfare, Juvenile Justice or Probation.
The Family Partner draws on his or her own relevant experiences to support families in overcoming the challenges they face. As a crucial part of the Seneca provider team, the Family Partner engages families in services and works with caregivers individually so they can better support the youth in their lives. Seneca is committed to hiring and maintaining a culturally, ethnically and linguistically diverse workforce that is reflective of the local client/student community.
Seneca Family of Agencies is committed to providing traditionally marginalized communities a network of outstanding mental health, community based, and educational services. Celebrating diversity and creating a culture of inclusion increases creativity, innovation, problem solving, and teamwork. Seneca’s agency-wide DEI Advisory Board, Employee Resource Groups, and Language Practice Groups help our employees provide culturally and linguistically relevant services to the families we serve.
