Big Hearts, Bright Futures
Agenda and speakers for the October 7 luncheon.
Today we come together to share and celebrate our clients’ success, which are our successes. It’s a day when we recognize the big hearts who have a transformational impact on our work, as well as our clients and the bright futures ahead of them.
For many families, life brings uncertainty. We continue to provide foundational support to families—utility and housing assistance, transportation, food, medical equipment—so they can focus on what children need to thrive.
As our supporters, you play a critical role in allowing us to deliver on this promise. We are forever grateful for your big hearts and open arms.
Thank you for being here,
Veronda L. Durden

YOUR SUPPORT IS CRITICAL FOR FAMILIES
Fatima, Parenting Class Participant
Fatima’s family moved to the United States when she was an infant. They struggled when she was growing up. Fatima experienced homelessness and got pregnant at 20 years old. At 21 she gave birth to a little girl. Fatima vowed to give her daughter a better future after taking Any Baby Can's parenting classes. Now Fatima is an entrepreneur and gives back to her community.
Natalia, Client in Nurse-Family Partnership
Natalia was in our Nurse-Family Partnership program when she found out her daughter had a rare neuromuscular disorder. With support from her Any Baby Can nurse and our Early Childhood Intervention team, she has faced the challenges of raising her sweet and loving daughter. Natalia now advocates for other families who have children with complex medical conditions.
