Annual Report

September 2019-August 2020

A Healthier Future for All Families

Any Baby Can was created on the belief that by fostering strong, resilient families, every child and parent can reach their full potential.

Over the last year, we were challenged. We ramped up telehealth in a few days. We worked with new partners to help clients access essentials, like food and diapers. We faced inequities and racism head on. And through it all, we became a stronger and more resilient team.

We’re proud of the work we accomplished and yet we recognize that there’s still a lot more to do. You—our supporters, our partners, our donors, our volunteers and our staff—make it possible for families to thrive!

RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

Many of our families had significant family, health or other life challenges before the Coronavirus, and things have only gotten harder. Through the challenges, we’ve seen our staff, volunteers, supporters and client families adapt, learn new skills, and take on new roles.

Since March 2020, when the pandemic began, through the end of our fiscal year in August 2020, Any Baby Can distributed $264,623 in basic needs assistance. That's an increase of 78% over the same timeframe in the previous year.

We also identified elements of the home visitation model that can be simulated virtually, including:

  • Reliable visit times and agendas
  • Parent coaching and community building
  • Focus on physical, developmental and emotional well-being
  • Mental health counseling, webinars and virtual support groups

Through it all, Any Baby Can continued to provide virtual visits (21,478 telehealth visits in FY20!) and keep barriers to services as low as possible, while giving clients a sense of continuity and stability. Read about how our programs adapted.

Our Approach to Telehealth

The parent coaching model inherent in Any Baby Can’s programs has made the transition to telehealth not only possible, but an incredibly meaningful experience.
