In 2018, Any Baby Can served more than 3,000 families in Central Texas, including expecting parents and parents of young children, children with developmental delays, moms and dads seeking parenting classes, and children with cancer or other medical needs. Services led to 97 percent of client families feeling better prepared to plan for their family’s future.

As the premier fundraiser for Any Baby Can, funds raised at the benefit concert allow the agency to provide critical family services even as our region’s population grows and moves out of urban areas. Over the past couple years, Any Baby Can expanded its team and geographic reach to serve even more families and provide comprehensive services that range from healthcare and education to emotional support and basic needs.

“We believe strong families are at the core of thriving communities. All parents should feel supported, valued and empowered to ensure their children have the best chance at a bright future,” says Any Baby Can CEO Veronda L. Durden. “By partnering with parents, we’re laying the groundwork for multi-generational change that fosters the development of our economy and our society.”

Any Baby Can’s benefit concert is made possible by generous support from sponsors, including Superior Healthplan, Heritage Title and Capitol Chevrolet; and our annual Mission Partners: HEB Tournament of Champions, Seton Ascension and Spawglass.
