Impact

Accomplishments 15-16
1. The Trauma Informed Community Network (TICN) has grown and expanded to 113 members (39 new members joined in the 15-16 fiscal year) representing 61 agencies. The members of the TICN are engaged through eight committees: Trauma Informed Practice Training Committee, Trauma Informed Brief Screening Tool Committee, Trauma Informed Workforce Development Committee, Trauma Informed Schools Committee, Trauma Informed Outcomes Committee, and three newly formed committees: Trauma Informed Health Committee, Trauma Informed Legal and Courts Committee, and Trauma Informed Policy Committee.
The Greater Richmond TICN provided consultation with other trauma-informed network efforts throughout the Commonwealth with representation from Hampton Roads, Petersburg, Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Newport News, and Fairfax. The TICN also hosted six screening events of the Paper Tigers film of the story of Lincoln High School that documented their efforts to create a trauma informed school. Over five hundred people attended the screenings.
2. In order to better accommodate families and children in Henrico County, SCAN opened a satellite CAC in March of 2016 in collaboration with the Henrico Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) to serve Henrico County residents.

Goals 16-17
1. Continue to develop and implement trauma-informed practices and integrate protective factors throughout organizations serving children and families in the Greater Richmond area. By using the Families Are Magic (FAM) Prevention Program and the Trauma-Informed Community Network (TICN), SCAN will continue to lead the effort to build resiliency at the individual, family, and community level.
2. Establish a Parent Council in the Greater Richmond area to help inform community programs and services for families and children through parent engagement.
3.Assess the landscape of preschoolers’ needs who have experienced trauma in the area and identify the implications for the Circle Preschool Program. Also, increase trauma-informed education through exploration of enhancing or expanding the Circle Preschool Program.


Needs

SCAN’s budget for the 2016-2017 fiscal year, which began July 1, is $1,645,539. All funds are used support SCAN's five programs, which include the Richmond CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) program, the FAM (Families Are Magic ) Prevention Program, the Family Support Program, the Circle Preschool Program and the Child Advocacy Center.

 

$10 gift: can help cover a week of breakfasts and lunches for a child enrolled in SCAN’s Circle Preschool.

$25 gift: can provide a week of transportation for two Family Support Program groups, thereby making it possible for clients who would otherwise be unable to do so to attend treatment and education groups.

$50 gift can train one CASA volunteer. CASA volunteers attend 32 hours of intensive training and court observation to advocate for children in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court System.

$100 gift can educate five caregivers using the revolutionary Stewards of Children training in the hope that they can help prevent child sexual abuse in our community.

$250 gift can supply a month’s worth of snacks for 25 children enrolled in SCAN’s Family Support Program’s children’s groups.

$500 gift can furnish occupational therapy services for 8 children in our Circle Preschool program. The Circle Preschool serves children whose significant social and emotional difficulties stemming from trauma make it impossible to thrive in a traditional pre-school environment.

$1000 gift can deliver 15 hours of intensive individual counseling for child victims of severe physical or sexual abuse.

Background Greater Richmond SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now) was founded in 1991 to prevent abuse and neglect in the Richmond region of Virginia, which includes the City of Richmond and the surrounding counties of Chesterfield, Colonial Heights, Cumberland, Hanover, Henrico, Louisa, Petersburg and Prince George. SCAN initially only focused on educating the public through awareness campaigns and events. SCAN started providing direct services in 1993 by sponsoring two Parents Anonymous groups. The groups have evolved into the Family Support Program. Between 1993 and 2013, SCAN expanded the Program from two Parent Support Groups to sixteen. SCAN implemented structured Children’s Groups in 1997.

In 2002, SCAN identified the need for a local Child Advocacy Center (CAC) by researching national trends and gathering feedback from clients and other local service providers. In 2003, SCAN convened a task force to determine the strategic direction of the proposed CAC, secured the necessary resources, and established the City of Richmond’s Multidisciplinary Team.  In November 2004, SCAN opened the region’s first and only CAC and began offering mental health services for children and conducting monthly multidisciplinary team case reviews. In 2007 the CAC received accreditation from the National Children’s Alliance. Since, the CAC established Multidisciplinary Teams in Chesterfield County, Louisa County and Prince George County to better serve victims of abuse living in those areas.

In order to better accommodate families and children in Henrico County, SCAN opened a satellite CAC in March of 2016 in collaboration with the Henrico Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) to serve Henrico County residents.

 

In early 2007, SCAN restructured its original Public Education Program and re-launched it as FAM (Families Are Magic) Prevention Program. The purpose of FAM is to connect parents with other parents, with information on every day child-rearing issues, and with other local organizations that provide parenting education and support. Through FAM, SCAN promotes the 1-800-CHILDREN helpline, provides a clearinghouse for parenting resources at www.FAMrichmond.org, offers Circle of Parents groups, facilitates child abuse prevention trainings, and coordinates a FAM Network of service providers to help improve the community’s service delivery to parents.

In February 2009, SCAN began discussions with Richmond CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) about merging the organization with SCAN. In November 2009, Richmond CASA successfully merged with SCAN, becoming SCAN’s fourth program. CASA trains volunteers who advocate for the best interests of children involved in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court process.  The program promotes safe, permanent homes for all children and enables SCAN to provide an even more comprehensive approach to treating and preventing child abuse and neglect in the Greater Richmond area.   

Finally, in February 2011, SCAN began partnering with St. James’s Children’s Center to implement The Circle Preschool, a pilot therapeutic preschool program for children who have experienced trauma. Through the Circle Preschool, SCAN prepares children who have social and emotional challenges for long-term educational success before they enter kindergarten. The program is an expansion of SCAN’s current mental health program at the CAC.

 
CEO Statement SCAN’s mission to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect is urgent. There are hundreds of children and families in the Greater Richmond area who need our services. As times continue to be hard, we know this number will rise. In fact, last year, there were 644 cases of child abuse or neglect in the Greater Richmond and Central VA area. More than 35,000 children involved in reports received a family assessment from Child Protective Services. Thirty-seven children died as a result of abuse or neglect last year in Virginia. SCAN served more than 2,000 children and families directly affected by abuse and neglect last year.

Children who are abused and/or neglected often have social, cognitive, and economic difficulties in adulthood. Studies have shown that they are more likely to have poor academic achievement, poor coping and decision-making skills, and fail to develop adequate and positive social support. In addition to suffering from immediate physical injuries, victims of child abuse and neglect are more likely to develop behaviors that lead to obesity, diabetes, depression, psychiatric distress, post traumatic stress disorder, and other chronic diseases.

In the Greater Richmond area, there is a lack of trauma-informed systems to address the needs of children who have experienced trauma. Children that have experienced trauma have social, cognitive, and economic difficulties in childhood and adulthood and suffer from a variety of physical and mental health problems. According to the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study conducted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) at the Kaiser Permanente, there is a strong link between adverse childhood experiences and adult onset of chronic illness.

The impact of traumatized children on society is profound and widespread. 85% of inmates were traumatized as youth. 27% of hospital visits can be traced to causes linked to childhood trauma. ACES hurt children in the short-term and hurt the same children when they become adults in the long-term. Students with at least three ACEs are three times as likely to experience academic failure.

 
Board Chair Statement

Every community’s future lies with its children. Communities that value and care for children help create a better future for all of us. This goal is the center of SCAN’s mission to prevent child abuse and neglect, and SCAN accomplishes it by protecting children, promoting positive parenting, and strengthening families, via SCAN’s five programs.

Victimized children are placed in safe, permanent homes through a volunteer led court advocacy program. Children who have suffered trauma often experience emotional and developmental delays, and are helped by our Circle Preschool, founded on best practices of trauma-informed care. Parents who abuse because they’ve been abused are provided education and training that help end the cycle. Parents under stress and at risk for abuse or neglectful behavior benefit from our parenting programs. SCAN is expanding its expertise to other community organizations including local schools, through the Trauma-Informed Community Network. Your financial contributions to SCAN make it possible for specialized professionals to provide critical training to agency workers, teachers, parents and children, so abuse and neglect can be recognized early and even prevented. The children of greater Richmond have a better chance at a bright future because of your generosity.

Collaborations

Collaboration is a key organizational value and it runs through every program. As an essential part of our philosophy, collaboration compels us each day to ask questions like, “Who else is doing this?” and “How can we work together to best meet the need?”  The Multidisciplinary Team is a collaborative effort by the Child Advocacy Center to coordinate services and communication in localities to better investigate, treat and prosecute the most severe types of abuse. Richmond CASA works with other local CASA programs to improve services and continue to provide efficient and effective services to children involved in cases of abuse and neglect. The FAM Network is a collaborative group of professionals who are committed to increasing resiliency among children and families, and meet quarterly to share information to strengthen families in our community.

SCAN's Executive Director, Jeanine Harper, leads and convenes The Trauma Informed Community Network (TICN), in Virginia. The TICN is a diverse group of professionals in the Greater Richmond area who are dedicated to supporting and advocating for continuous trauma informed care for all children and families within the Child Welfare system in the City of Richmond and surrounding counties.  There are currently 74 member organizations of the TICN.
 
 
Programs
Description The Downtown Richmond and Henrico Child Advocacy Centers (CAC) provide a comprehensive intervention system designed with the victimized child as its primary focus. The key to the CAC's success is the flow of services through a Multidisciplinary Team, which consists of all service providers involved in cases of abuse. Through the Multidisciplinary Team, the CAC provides a coordinated response in order to improve investigation, treatment, and prosecution of cases of severe physical and sexual child abuse. SCAN's CAC's provide: child forensic interviews; trauma focused treatment; medical services; victim advocacy; multidisciplinary case review; and case tracking.
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Budget $343,574.00
Short Term Success   Short-term goals for the CAC include:

  1. To increase communication and collaboration among the disciplines involved with severe child abuse cases because a long-term agreement to adhere to protocol is in place to support this continued work flow.
  2. To minimize the number of interviews children undergo and provide a friendly and non-threatening environment for those interviews.
  3. To coordinate referrals for onsite and offsite mental health services for child victims of alleged serious physical abuse or sexual abuse.
  4. To improve the investigation and prosecution of child abuse cases and therefore will lead to more offenders being held accountable.

Long Term Success  

Long-term goals of the CAC are to support victims' long-term mental health by engaging parents/caregivers in the recovery process and increasing families' protective factors. The CAC will improve the family’s response to trauma. In addition, the CAC will minimize the negative impact the investigation and prosecution process has on victims' mental health. Children will live in safer, more nurturing homes and will be better able to thrive as a result of long-term impacts of services provided by the CAC.

Description SCAN's Family Support Program provides weekly, psycho-educational groups for families affected by child abuse and neglect. The children's groups provide a safe, structured, nurturing and consistent environment where at-risk children can participate in therapeutic activities that help them cope with their experiences and help them develop pro-social skills, safety skills, and feelings management skills, as well as a positive self image. During the adult meetings, parents have the opportunity to build a positive social support system, increase their understanding of child development, develop appropriate child-rearing skills, improve their coping/stress management skills, and identify and alleviate other stressors that can negatively affect their caregiving. Because the program serves children and their parents, SCAN has the opportunity to affect change within the entire family. SCAN believes that with improved overall family functioning, children will be able to thrive not only at home, but in school and ultimately in life.
Population Served Families
Budget $308,251.00
Short Term Success

Short-term goals for caregivers include:

  • Group participants will report increased knowledge of new child-rearing methods, improved understanding of child development, and increased level of support through quarterly satisfaction surveys.
  • Group participants will achieve goal attainment as determined through monthly progress notes and exit interviews. (Individual goals are established during the initial intake process).
  • Group participants who complete the Adult Adolescent Parenting Inventory (AAPI) pre- and post-tests will have improved scores on at least two of the five constructs integral to positive parenting.

 Short-term goals for children include:

  • Children will be assessed to have an average score of 3 or higher on quarterly Risk vs. Protective Factor Scale.
  • Children’s monthly progress notes will indicate that children display safety knowledge and skills during group.
  • Monthly progress notes will indicate that children identified and appropriately expressed their feelings during group.
  • Monthly progress notes will indicate that children displayed positive relationships with peers and adult role models during group.
  • Monthly progress notes will indicate that children displayed characteristics of having a positive self-image during group.
Long Term Success  The Family Support Program ensures that children who have been affected by abuse and neglect get the treatment that they need so that they can go on to have healthy and happy childhoods.The Family Support program also helps parents develop the skills they need to overcome their frustration, learn agedevelopment and discover how to deal with the stressors that come with raising children. These impacts will last within their families for generations to come and break the cycle of child abuse and neglect.
Description

The Families Are Magic (FAM) Prevention Program connects parents with other parents, with information on every day child-rearing issues, and with other local organizations that provide parenting education and support. Through FAM, SCAN promotes the 1-800-CHILDREN helpline, provides a clearinghouse for parenting information and resources through the www.FAMrichmond.org website, offers Circle of Parents self-help styled support groups, facilitates child abuse prevention trainings, and coordinates a FAM Network of service providers to help improve the community's service delivery to parents. Unlike other SCAN programs, which target high-risk families, FAM services are for ALL parents because child-rearing presents universal challenges regardless of socio-economic status. Through ongoing marketing efforts that address the stigma often felt by parents who need help, FAM encourages all parents to ask questions and seek help when needed.

Population Served Families
Budget $140,538.00
Short Term Success

In addition, caregivers willdevelop a greater sense of efficacy about their parenting ability, both in play-based interactions and in positive discipline-related interactions.

CEO/ED/Board Comments

SCAN offers a continuum of services to help families affected by abuse and neglect. Our niche continues to be helping the most at-risk families in our community. Typically, the children and families we serve have experienced multiple types of trauma.  SCAN continues to witness an increase in the number of clients who have an income below the poverty level and who have histories of sexual abuse, domestic violence and substance abuse. Often clients have barriers to transportation and cannot afford services. SCAN works to eliminates barriers so that all families can receive services.

 

SCAN also empowers families who have not yet faced the painful realities of abuse and neglect. We believe in the strengths of each and every family. We know from our own experiences and based on the latest research that working with caregivers is the most effective way to impact a child’s development and ultimately their ability to be safe and to thrive. While we offer treatment and education to children who have been abused and neglected, we also focus much of our efforts working with caregivers.

 

By reaching caregivers both through our prevention efforts and in our treatment programs, we can prevent abuse before it happens. We offer caregivers education and support to minimize the likelihood of abuse and neglect. If abuse does occur, SCAN educates these caregivers to prevent them from abusing again. Educating just one mother will resonate within her family for generations to come. SCAN supports thousands of caregivers in our community, which results in long-lasting and far-reaching impact.
