Free Mom Hugs

Since 2014, Sara Cunningham and many other parents of the LGBTQ community have joined in the fight for human rights of equality for all.



Free Mom Hugs is a registered non-profit organization made up of parents and allies who love the LGBTQ+ community unconditionally and are working toward full affirmation and equality for all.

 We are dedicated to educating families, church and civic leaders, encouraging them to not only affirm the value of the LGBTQ+ community but celebrate them.

Your donations allow us to advocate for equality for the LGBTQ+ community by providing resources, education, and support at community events, churches, and colleges.

We provide temporary financial assistance for emergency housing, food, clothing, travel expenses and court costs related to name changes, etc. Please explore the website to learn more about our initiatives and projects. Thanks for visiting. We would love to stay in contact.
