What is the Parenting PATH?

The Parenting PATH (Positive Actions, Thriving Homes) is a local, non-profit agency with a 37-year track record of making the world a safer place for our children. Parenting PATH was founded in 1981 as Exchange/SCAN, with the support of local Exchange Clubs and citizens of Forsyth County. Parenting PATH is a National Exchange Club Foundation Child Abuse Prevention Center and is supported by local Exchange Clubs and the National Exchange Club Foundation. Child abuse is a serious issue that continues to impact families in northwest North Carolina. Exchange/SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now) is the primary child abuse prevention agency in northwest North Carolina and with the help of wonderful financial donors, we provide more than 20 different services or programs to prevent and treat child abuse.
