Seneca Center

  • Seneca Center sustains children and families through the most difficult times of their lives.
  • In many cases, we are the last hope for young people who have come to see failure and discouragement as a way of life.
  • Here at Seneca, we offer each child a simple but profound promise: You will be supported every step of the way, no matter what challenges you face.
  • By supporting each child and family in identifying and building upon their resources and strengths, we enable them to approach the future with renewed optimism and a stronger sense of the possibilities for creating a new and different story for their lives.
