Resilient Children, Resilient Loudoun
In 2016, SCAN of Northern Virginia, with support from the Northern Virginia Health Foundation (NVHF), convened the Loudoun Partnership for Resilient Children and Families through a steering committee of public, private, and non-profit organizations that serve children and families in Loudoun County. The goal was to assess the needs of vulnerable children and the resources available to support at-risk families; collaboratively develop recommendations for addressing the gaps identified; and raise awareness of how a community can best support vulnerable children and reduce long-term health outcomes for individuals, families, and communities.
