Seneca Family of Agencies is a nonprofit agency that provides an unconditional continuum of care for the most vulnerable families on the West Coast. At Seneca, we form strengths-based partnerships with parents and caregivers to meet the greatest needs of each young person served and to help the youth’s natural support providers to maximize their potential. Seneca staff work closely with county agencies, school districts, and other community-based providers to ensure that children and families receive the supportive services they need to ensure safety, stability, and permanency.
The Clinical Intervention Specialist provides school-based therapeutic, case management and consultation services for a caseload of children and families. Working within partnering schools, the Clinical Intervention Specialist coordinates services delivered at the school site to ensure the success of its students. In addition to working directly with children and families in need, the Specialist supports faculty and staff in including students successfully in diverse settings by providing teacher coaching, modeling and professional development opportunities. In this way, the Clinical Intervention Specialist works collaboratively with classroom teachers, school leadership and the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) implementation team to maintain the academic, social and emotional needs of each student.
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.
