Networking together.jpg

Barbara Sabido created her non-profit, [ap]Parent Love, after hearing directly from members of the LGBTQ+ community that they’d lost their parent's love and support when they came out. Building on her 30+ years experience in non-profit management, fundraising, event coordination and office management, she volunteers as Director to further their mission of providing a parent’s love to the LGBTQ+ community. Their main program is Family Time; monthly home-cooked meals and game nights in a loving atmosphere. They augment Family Time with one-on-one walks, impromptu happy hours, work visits, and coffee-dates, plus small group get-togethers at queer-friendly establishments. Apart from [ap]Parent Love, Barbara works as Operations Coordinator at BayMarin Church in San Rafael, and offers some personal organizing on the side.
