Located at the Agency’s Seneca Office, 23 Center Street in Waterloo, Seneca Programs administers
a variety of programs that help customers identify needs and provide them support
on their paths to self-sufficiency. While every program is an access point for the other Agency programs as well as
programs at other organizations serving Seneca County, the majority of our
customers start their journey when they walk through for emergency food. During
the process of receiving food, they discover the variety of programs and services in
which they can participate to meet critical family and individual needs. A simple
step such as asking for food can lead to a comprehensive strategy for developing
self-sufficiency for the family.
