How we work to best serve children:

  1. SCAN will be a leading voice for children in the Northern Virginia region by cultivating, engaging, and empowering partners and volunteers to strengthen support for families and communities to prevent – and ultimately, end – child abuse and neglect.
  2. SCAN will strengthen and support parenting and families in Northern Virginia by providing accessible, evidence-informed educational programs and public education initiatives.
  3. SCAN will sustain and grow the CASA program so that all vulnerable children involved in child abuse/neglect cases in the Arlington and Alexandria Juvenile & Domestic Relations courts have a well-qualified, well-trained volunteer advocate to accelerate and improve decision-making necessary to place the child in a safe, stable, and nurturing home.
  4. SCAN will develop the partnerships, advocates and capacity needed to provide expanded and enhanced services in the communities of outer Fairfax, Prince William, and Loudoun Counties.
  5. SCAN commits to continue building its capacity to provide needed services while ensuring strong programmatic implementation and sound, sustainable operational and fiscal management.
