What is SCAN?

This October marks our 35th anniversary of serving families in the Piedmont Triad Area. Exchange/SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now) provides more than 20 different services or programs to prevent and treat child abuse in Forsyth, Stokes, Surry, Alamance and other counties in northwestern North Carolina. Last year, SCAN provided services to 3,359 people in 60 cities/towns in 14 counties. The majority of services are free to the community. Volunteers are used extensively for their ability to give individualized care and to involve the community in the prevention of child abuse.
