Greater Richmond SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now) in partnership with The Jenkins Foundation is pleased to announce a screening of Paper Tigers, a film that captures the pain, danger, beauty and hopes of struggling teens-and the teachers armed with new science and fresh approaches that are changing lives for the better.

Paper Tigers follows a year in the life of an alternative high school in Walla Walla, WA, that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, and in the process has become a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families.

Get Ready to Grow For the Kids!
The Richmond chapter of Mustaches for KidsŪ (M4K Richmond) are kicking off their annual mustache growing fundraiser. What began as a somewhat bizarre and humorous fundraising concept has grown into an active 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization with over 120 annual growers raising $100,000 in 2014 and more than $350,000 cumulatively since 2003.
SCAN has been a benefiting organization for the last 4 years with over $85,000 donated to SCAN during that time.
The 2015 Growing Season kicks off on November 4th at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and extends through December 4th. During the four-week Growing Season, each Grower sprouts mustaches. Per the bylaws they shave their faces except for the mustache a minimum of one time per week and solicit donations from friends, family, co-workers, and people in the community. Please consider participating and supporting this great organization!

You can support SCAN's own Development Director, David LeFebvre as he grows for the kids!

Amy Small Joins Family Support Program

As the Clinical Supervisor for the Family Support Program, Amy Small, LPC provides clinical supervision for the Parent and Children's Group Facilitators throughout the 20 week treatment and education groups for caregivers and children. "We help support the group facilitators as they lead the Parenting and Children's Groups to make sure they run a healthy and safe group."

SCAN's Family Support Program (FSP) provides treatment and education groups for families who have experienced, or are at high risk of experiencing child abuse or neglect. The Program enhances parenting skills, builds social networks, increases knowledge of child development, and makes parents aware of valuable community resources.

"The Family Support Program helps parents find their own path, while giving them more nurturing, concrete parenting skills they can use," Amy said. "We are currently developing a new curriculum within FSP, with more focus on being trauma informed." Having experience with trauma and its importance on the cycle of abuse, Amy is eager to help implement this new curriculum. The Children's Group curriculum offers activities that help children cope with their experiences and develop positive relationships with peers and adults. SCAN provides a consistent and structured environment that fosters healthy development.
