Acacia Network

In 2017, Seedco became an affiliate of the Acacia Network, the leading Latino integrated care nonprofit in the nation that offers, children to seniors, a pathway to behavioral and primary healthcare, housing, and empowerment. Acacia Network’s extensive array of community-based services is fully integrated, ensures easy access, is bilingual, and actively incorporates consumer and community level input. Acacia Network’s mission is to partner with our communities, lead change, and promote healthy and prosperous individuals and families.

 

 

Housing Services

Acacia’s vision of healthy communities is firmly connected to quality housing. We provide a full continuum of services, from transitional to supportive and affordable.

All of our tenants are linked to our fully integrated healthcare, social services, and community investment programs. Services provided in New York City and Buffalo are: Case Management; Housing Placement; Referrals for Community Based Services; Education & Training Workshops; Property Management; and Real Estate Development.

We specialize in managing chronic illnesses, such as asthma, diabetes, hypertension, hepatitis, HIV, and depression.

Daycare & Educational Enrichment

Acacia’s daycare program builds a strong foundation for education and learning. Children (ages 2-5 years) learn, laugh, and grow together in our Early Childhood Education Program (ECDP), licensed by NYC Administration for Children’s Services. Teachers and staff, in partnership with parents, grandparents, and caregivers, focus on the “whole” child. Reading, writing, math, and science are balanced with social and emotional development. We also provide services for children with special needs and facilitate an active Parent Advisory Committee. Hands-on education, supported by NYC DYCD, is located in public schools and actively engage students in science and math activities, cultural projects, and individualized tutoring.
