Seneca Family of Agencies was founded in 1985 by advocates who were determined to more effectively meet the needs of children in group homes and foster family care. Seneca established itself as an innovative leader in the provision of unconditional care through a comprehensive continuum of school, community-based and family-focused treatment services for children and families who have experienced high levels of trauma and are at risk for family disruption or institutional placement of the children.
The Nurse Practitioner is responsible for assessing, diagnosing, evaluating and treating clients on their caseload. Additionally, the Nurse Practitioner is also responsible for utilizing the nursing process to provide assessment, treatment planning, and evaluation of the client's care within designated clinical areas. The Nurse Practitioner acts as a clinical role model, provide nursing consultation to staff, and psychiatry services.
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.
