What is the GRTICN?

The Greater Richmond Trauma-Informed Community Network (GRTICN) of Virginia is a diverse group of individuals, convened by Greater Richmond SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now), who share a commitment towards the creation of a more trauma-informed and resilient community within the Greater Richmond region.  The GRTICN was formed in the fall of 2012 and is currently comprised of over 500 members from more than 160 different organizations representing a wide range of systems that include public, private, non-profit, state, and local government agencies. View the full list of GRTICN member agencies here! 

Who leads the GRTICN? 

Greater Richmond SCAN leads and convenes member agencies on a regular basis to implement trauma-informed practices throughout the Greater Richmond area. Melissa McGinn, Director of Community Programs, and Lisa Wright, Trauma-Focused Treatment (TFT) Program Coordinator, are the SCAN staff members who lead this initiative.
