During this global crisis, people have been looking for ways to give back or to help those most vulnerable right now. One population that is being negatively affected by this crisis is children. For children who are dealing with homes that are abusive or neglectful, or parents who are already facing significant challenges, this time of social distancing, schools being shut down and services being put on hold could present real danger. Greater Richmond SCAN is working every day to make sure that these children and these families remain safe. You can help right now!
Greater Richmond SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now) is an organization dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect in the Greater Richmond area by protecting children, promoting positive parenting, strengthening families and creating a community that values and cares for its children.
There are five programs under the SCAN umbrella: Child Advocacy Center, Family Support Program, Community Programs, Richmond CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), and Circle Preschool Program, each one designed to meet the needs of children who have experienced childhood trauma and the families that care for them.
Greater Richmond SCAN is currently hosting the 18th Annual Progressive Dinner and Auction which raises important funds to support the operation of SCAN’s five programs.
Right now, SCAN needs your help more than ever to ensure that the children and families we serve continue to be safe and have access to services. This is our first year hosting the Progressive Dinner virtually, and we are so grateful for the corporate sponsors and supporters who have enabled us to carry on the tradition of this event. Title Sponsors are Bon Secours Richmond Health System and Estes.
Join in the Progressive Dinner and Auction anytime between now and May 2.
