8945 Golf Links Road Oakland, CA 946056


Position/Job Description:

Are you committed to leading a team that supports those most in need? At Seneca, we are looking for a Social WorkSupervisor for the Mobile Response Team (MRT) and the Short-Term Assessment of Resource and Treatment (START) !

$5,000 sign-on bonus for new Seneca employees in this position!

As a Social WorkSupervisor for the MRT & START programs, you will be responsible for delivering individual and group clinical supervision to community-based staff and clinical oversight to the MRT and START Programs to ensure the delivery of the most effective services to the youth and families in the programs. Becoming a Social Work Supervisor will give you the opportunity to be part of the crisis intervention system, focused on meeting the needs of an underserved community that may be experiencing major life stressors or other mental health challenges. MRT and START programs provide crisis and linkage services to youth and their families who are experiencing significant emotional, psychological, or behavioral problems that are interfering with their well-being.


The Mobile Response Team (MRT) is a short-term program which supports youth and their families in crisis when there are concerns for immediate safety. The MRT service is intended to offer families, schools, and providers an alternative to calling 911 when law enforcement may not be necessary for the level of presenting concerns. The goal is to?provide early intervention before crises escalate, to divert youth from more restrictive interventions, and reduce criminalization of mental health for youth.

The Short-Term Assessment of Resource and Treatment (START) Program provides stabilization services following a crisis involving a youth within the Pierce County community. The primary goals of the START Program are suicide prevention and safety planning, ongoing crisis management and development of coping skills for youth and their families along with collaboration with other treatment team providers serving the youth. The goal is to provide crisis stabilization and linkage to long-term services while providing same day crisis services in the home or community.


Seneca Family of Agencies is committed to providing traditionally marginalized communities a network of outstanding mental health, community based, and educational services. Seneca’s agency-wide Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Board, Employee Resource Groups, and Language Practice Groups help our employees provide culturally and linguistically relevant services to the families we serve
