Any Baby Can Annual Report

September 2017-August 2018

Veronda Durden

A Year of Possibility

This past year has been full of wonder and possibility. Since I joined the team in January 2018, Any Baby Can has continued to push for growth and greater community impact. We expanded our Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) program and our Early Childhood Intervention services, and for the first time we no longer have a waitlist for our Healthy and Fair Start program! It’s also been a time of celebration as we surpassed 10 years as affiliates of NFP and Parents as Teachers.

We envision a community in which all parents feel supported, valued and empowered. And to reach that, there’s a lot of work to be done! Thank you for being a part of our village.

Natalie, Any Baby Can client


When Natalie’s first son Camrin was born prematurely at 28 weeks, weighing less than two pounds, she knew there would be challenges in her tiny boy’s life. Our team of therapists helped the family every step of the way. Camrin is now six and a half! And Natalie has used her experiences to start her own business.
