We’re Mobilizing Virginians to Be the Voice for Kids

In Virginia, it costs more to send one child to child care than to earn a degree from a local public university.
In Virginia,

13% of families with children (and 25% of black families) say they did not have enough to food eat.

That’s why SCAN VA is organizing year-round with advocates and partners to engage with elected officials, candidates, and communities to ensure that all children have access to quality, affordable early childhood education and child nutrition.

We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.
