  • Overview

    Seneca's San Francisco Hub team strives to provide care and resources to families involved in the child welfare system and foster care services. Our goal is to strengthen permanency for children in their current placement, support them through transitions, and address their mental health and behavioral needs. 


    The Stablization Counselor provides goal-focused mental health interventions, crisis interventions, and case management services to children and families. They work as members of a treatment team and provide services in the community, including hospitals, schools, and family homes located both within San Francisco and up to 90 miles away. 


    “The staff are incredibly committed to bringing out the strengths of the youth, their families, and their communities so that they can move quickly out of system and work toward accomplishing their own goals and making positive changes. I am honored and privileged to work with and learn from such talented, dedicated, and thoughtful colleagues, youth, and families.” – Seneca staff member
