Mission Statement

Iredell Exchange SCAN Center 704.878.2227207 Walnut StreetStatesville, NC 28677

Mission: Building hope for children and families through education, counseling and intervention programs to Stop Child Abuse Now.

Child Abuse Prevention became the National Project of Exchange Clubs in 1979. Since that time, Exchange Clubs across the nation have become involved in child abuse prevention efforts in a variety of ways. Some of their many projects include establishing Exchange Club Child Abuse Prevention Centers and supporting affiliate programs.

In 1987 Volunteers from our local Exchange Clubs came together to setup the Exchange Center of Iredell County.
