Big Hearts, Bright Futures

October 5, 2023, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Veronda Durden

Welcome!

Today we come together to connect, celebrate and educate ourselves on the realities of parenthood.

Positive parenting practices have an enormous impact on a child’s social, emotional, and intellectual development. So we continue to rise to the task of supporting parents and embracing opportunities to increase our impact and strengthen our programs.

With the support of our Angel Society, Any Baby Can is able to offer comprehensive services that effectively break down barriers for families to succeed.

Thank you for being here,
Veronda L. Durden
