  • Overview

    The Bilingual Clinician coordinates services and planning for youth who are referred through the SF Juvenile Probation Department and are at risk of increased sanctions including removal from family, or who are stepping down from institutional facilities into family or family-like settings. Services will be provided almost exclusively in the community: in families’ homes, schools, community settings, court, etc. The primary role is to ensure that all parties are working together toward stability for the youth and family.


    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.
