What is SCAN?
This past October we celebrated our 35th anniversary of serving families in the Piedmont Triad Area. Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) provides services to children and families in Forsyth, Stokes, Davie, Alamance, Orange, Chatham, Person, Caswell, Guilford, Randolph, Surry, Yadkin, Iredell, Rowan, Rockingham, and Davidson counties. We have been able, with the help of wonderful financial donors, to provide a multitude of services at little or no cost to families in crisis. Volunteers are used extensively for their ability to give individualized care and to involve the community in the prevention of child abuse.

Volunteer and Make a Difference
Our volunteers make a difference. Volunteering is a rewarding experience and helps out the agency in so many ways. We are thankful to our volunteers for their generosity of time and talents. Volunteers are needed to work with families at risk or involved in child abuse and neglect. Opportunity to work one on one with a family each week to help them strengthen relations with their children. Welcome Baby volunteers are also needed to work with brand new parents adjusting to their babies. Home visits and sharing resources. Small stipend to help defer travel cost.
We are very grateful for the support that we receive from the community. We could not provide the services and the level of care that our organization is known for without your gifts. One-time or recurring donations of money as well as donations of goods and services are greatly appreciated. If your community group or business would like to sponsor Exchange/SCAN, please call 336-748-9028 today!
