About SETA

Since 1978, the SACRAMENTO EMPLOYMENT & TRAINING AGENCY (SETA), a joint powers agency of the City and County of Sacramento, was formed in 1978. From its inception SETA has been an effective force in connecting people to jobs, business owners to quality employees, education and nutrition to children, assistance to refugees, and hope to many Sacramento area residents.

Children & Family Services

Head Start serves over 6,200 children daily. Perhaps the most successful program ever created for children, Head Start was initiated in 1965 to provide educational programs for pre-school children in poverty. The program provides educational and special educational services, health, dental, mental health, social and nutritional services. Teamed with the One Stop Career Centers, Head Start promotes employment and training programs to help parents become self-sufficient. Learn more here.

Community Programs & Resources

SETA is the designated Community Action Agency for Sacramento County for the provision of Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) services. The purpose of the CSBG program is to reduce the incidence and effects of poverty and empower low-income families and individuals to become self-sufficient. The program operates through neighborhood-based organizations that provide resources and services to produce measurable impacts on the causes and symptoms of poverty experienced by challenged families and communities.
