Free2Be provides free counseling, support groups, and public advocacy to the LGBTQ community. The organization’s locations across Alabama are now closed down and there’s no word yet on when or if they will reopen.
“I have two kids and if it wasn’t for Free2Be they wouldn’t have me,” said JenniLynne Walker-Rice, who used their services. “I was that deep in depression and suicidal thoughts. Because I don’t have health insurance they didn’t turn me away. Their services were free regardless of who you were.”
Walker-Rice is an ally to the LGBTQ community and says more people should know that they help everyone.
