Carol S. Fox “Making Kids Count” Award

Jeanine Harper, of Richmond, has been changing the way we help children heal in our community. Jeanine has been the Executive Director of Greater Richmond SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now) for over 16 years, leading her team with unparalleled strength and kindness. Jeanine leads SCAN’s staff and volunteers to provide awareness, support, and education to enhance the lives of our most vulnerable children, those at-risk of abuse or neglect or who have been abused and neglected. This past year, Jeanine has built partnerships with local school administrators within the Richmond Public School system to help expanding a trauma informed approach in the division’s Pre-K-12 programs. She has also served as a loaned executive to the Department of Social Services when the number of reported child abuse victims across Virginia topped 50,000.
