Since 1998, Joan Scanlon-Petruski has been educating America's young adults on effective personal safety and security. Sharing the stories of families nationwide, Joan gives a powerful message that no college freshman should do without.
The Foundation also provides families and young adults access to educational resources as well as financial support through grants and gifts. For more information on these and other Foundation Programs, please contact the Kristen Foundation's headquarters in Charlotte, NC.
In October, 2001, Joan was selected as an honoree of The Eckerd Salute to Women 2001. This 4th annual event recognizes 100 women for their volunteerism and community service.
