Seneca County has many services, supports, and activities to offer youth and their families. Learning about all the options and deciding which would be the most beneficial for a specific youth and family can be time consuming and confusing.
Bob Ritter, Coordinator of Children’s Services, offers “One stop shopping”. Bob will meet the family and explain the options that are available. He will assist the family in determining which supports or services the family feels would be the most beneficial. Bob will make the referrals for the supports or services the family requests.
Families may contact Bob directly. School staff, therapists, case workers, etc. can refer the family to Bob, with the family’s consent, by utilizing the SPOA referral form.
