Seneca Family of Agencies was selected as one of 12 finalists to receive an SF Battery Powered grant for our Unconditional Education work in the Bay Area!

Robin illustrated how Seneca prioritizes mental health through its Unconditional Education school partnership model that helps transform schools into inclusive communities that serve all students.

We are so grateful for this recognition and opportunity to highlight Unconditional Education alongside so many passionate and amazing organizations working diligently to address mental health in our communities. Check out highlights from Organization Night and read Healed People Heal People... on the Battery Powered website.
