All-1- Family2023 Grand Marshal
"All-1- FAMily, Inc. provides mental and/or behavioral health services to lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, gender non-conforming and queer individuals. Services provided includes but not limited to coordinating mental health and community support services, couples counseling, group therapy, individual counseling, life skills and family counseling. All-1- FAMily provides a sense of family, home and belongingness where everyone will feel welcome.
All-1-FAMily, Inc.'s mission is two-fold: (1) to provide affordable, low-cost counseling services for all LGBT persons and our allies and (2) to function as a bridge to connect the gap between LGBT identified persons who are interested in counseling with a professional who can affirm their lifestyle/being.
All-1-FAMily, Inc. was born from the vision of our Director, Abeke Baker, LMFT and other mental health professionals. While working in various inpatient and community based settings providing comprehensive mental health services (crisis intervention, assessments and psychotherapy), we realized that although our LGBT brothers and sisters seek mental health services, some may fall short of finding a provider who is affirming, empathetic and non-judgmental to their present issues and may opt of receiving appropriate mental health/counseling services. After all, everyone deserves a safe space! "
