Seneca is a proud partner of the OC Running Festival

Seneca fosters Unconditional Care for children and families going through the most difficult times of their lives! With your support, Seneca offers mental health, education support, and adoption/placement services to 1,000 children in OC.

Seneca believes that children and youth do not themselves fail, but are failed by systems unable to address their complex and specialized needs. Since 1985, Seneca has dedicated itself to a model of UNCONDITIONAL CARE©, reflecting our commitment to doing whatever it takes to help children and families thrive. Through a continuum of services aimed at supporting children’s mental health, placement in forever families, and achieving success in school, Seneca’s support is truly unconditional.

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.
