Families Are Magic (FAM) 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, offers Circle of Parents groups, organizes the annual National Child Abuse Prevention Month campaign, and coordinates a FAM Network of service providers. Family Support Program SCAN's Family Support Program seeks to strengthen families and give caregivers the tools they need to provide healthy homes for their children. The Program provides intensive, treatment and education group to families who have experienced, or are at a high risk of experiencing, child abuse and neglect. Child Advocacy Center Based on a national model and the first of its kind locally, the Child Advocacy Center (CAC) is designed to dramatically improve the investigation, treatment and prosecution of sexual and severe physical abuse cases in our community. The Center is a safe and welcoming place for abused children to undergo child forensic interviews and medical exams and receive mental health services, victim advocacy, multidisciplinary case review, and case tracking. Richmond Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) The program provides trained volunteers who advocate for the best interests of children involved in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court process. CASA also seeks to assure safe and permanent homes for all children. The Circle Preschool Program Finally, in February 2011, SCAN began partnering with St. James’s Children’s Center to implement a pilot therapeutic preschool program for children who have experienced trauma. The Circle Preschool Program is based on best practices grounded in national and local research and is the first of its kind in the Richmond area. 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 services.
