SCAN is making changes to respond to COVID-19 and local school closures. Though our offices will be closed, our staff has been trained to work remotely. We have cancelled all events through the end of March, including Family Programs and the Allies in Prevention Awards. Please click here for a full statement. 



Last year, more than 10,000 children were involved in founded cases of abuse and neglect across Northern Virginia. With your help, we can give children a safer and brighter future.
