SCAN’s solution

The same solutions can’t solve the same problems. Child abuse prevention approaches haven’t changed significantly since the 1980s.

We want to be the change.

SCAN is pushing the envelope of child abuse prevention, implementing innovative solutions yet to be seen in Northern Virginia.
