Greater Richmond SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now) is a local nonprofit organization dedicated solely to the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect in the Greater Richmond area. SCAN was founded in 1991 in response to the rapidly growing rate of child abuse and neglect in the City of Richmond and its surrounding counties.
Scan works to provide the awareness, support and education needed to enhance the lives of children. SCAN's services promote positive parenting, strengthen families and help create a community that values and cares for its children. Our programs include the Family Support Program, the FAM (Families are Magic) Prevention Program, the Child Advocacy Center, Richmond CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and the Circle Preschool Program.
