Annual Report

September 2020 - August 2021

A Vision More Powerful Than Ever

During a time when health disparities were magnified and access to education, childcare and basic needs became limited, Any Baby Can stepped up. We adapted to the needs of families, and continued growing to serve a community with expanding hardships.

We revamped our operations and referral process to reduce barriers. We grew the number of clients served in nearly all programs. And through partnerships, visionary donors, and all our supporters, we strengthened our commitment to families and children in Central Texas.

Through it all, Any Baby Can remains dedicated to our community and serves as a source of stability and hope. For that, I'm proud and humbled.
