Support SCAN

At SCAN, we believe that every child in Northern Virginia should be able to grow up in a safe, stable, nurturing family, with the supports they need to contribute to stronger communities today and as adults tomorrow. 

We also believe that everyone can contribute to this vision, that every member of the community has a responsibility for making our community safer for children, and that each of us has a role to play in supporting programs that work, parents who are struggling, and community supports that strengthen families.
