Founded in 1977, SCAN New York is a non-profit youth and family service organization that provides a variety of integrated supports to the highest risk children and families of East Harlem and the South Bronx.
Serving over 7,000 children and teens and 1,000 adults and families each year at 20 program sites, SCAN is the largest youth service provider in East Harlem and the South Bronx.
Traditional youth and family service providers typically target their client's problems and then terminate program delivery at the resolution of the presenting problem.
SCAN considers the traditional "service termination" as a beginning. We employ a strength-based, empowerment-focused service approach, building upon individual and family strengths, inspiring our children and their families toward positive goals.
The agency currently has 104 full-time and 310 part-time employees with an annual budget of $12,583,356. SCAN has been led by its Executive Director, Lewis Zuchman, an original 1961 Freedom Rider, since 1987.
