Security Service Charitable Foundation to help families in crisis
$5,000 donation to be used for Any Baby Can Crisis Fund
SAN ANTONIO, TX (March 4, 2016) — When a child is diagnosed with a critical or chronic illness, many families find themselves in immediate need of financial assistance. The Any Baby Can Crisis Fund is there to help those families and today it received a $5,000 boost from the Security Service Federal Credit Union Charitable Foundation.
“I have been deeply moved and impressed with the level of service this organization provides families in their time of need,” said Kate Himes, senior vice president of Asset Recovery for Security Service and board of directors’ member for Any Baby Can. “They are dedicated advocates for the children and families in our community.”
Founded in 1982, Any Baby Can has helped thousands of families by providing support to those caring for children with chronic or critical illnesses, special health care needs, or developmental disabilities; free of charge. The crisis fund helps financially with the purchase of medication, medical equipment and supplies, rent, utilities, food and other basic needs.
“Many families find themselves in a lack of financial stability when their child is first diagnosed and they need temporary financial assistance,” said Dawn Dixon, president and CEO of Any Baby Can. “Through generous donations such as this, our crisis fund can provide that safety net until the family is able to connect with a long-term support program or become totally self-sufficient.”
Any Baby Can provides services for children ages newborn to 17, regardless of the parents’ income. They serve families in 19 counties throughout South Central Texas.
