This Side Up! Family has provided us with the time and resources to keep our marriage a priority amidst the challenges of raising three beautiful children. We absolutely adore and look forward to their monthly Date My Spouse program. Our children are well cared for and we can take time to focus on our marriage. This Side Up! Family is wonderful!

This Side UP! Family is a great organization that cares about families... single parent families and those with both mom and dad in the home. Sara and her team plan fun, family focused, free family activities to bring the family spotlight back on spending quality purposely time together. They offer so many services to help families thrive. They are certainly a blessing to my son and me!

We are a family of 8 but only 3 kiddos still live with us. In the last 8 years, we have been through a roller coaster of job loss and financial struggles. We were introduced to TSUF last summer when we were homeless and looking for ways to grow closer as a family. We love the I date my spouse program and it gives us an outlet to spend time together without 3 kids in tow. Thanks to everyone at TSUF for making the hard times a positive experience for our whole family.

Over the last three years, I have observed the incredible impact of This Side Up! Family in the the lives of single parent and married families in the Plano community. In addition to providing clothing for Single Parent families twice a year, Sarah Morris and the dedicated team of volunteers provide resource seminars, game nights, and counseling for families. They are truly committed to moving families in our community from just surviving to thriving.

I am a single mom and This Side Up provides me and my son a safe place to spend time together and meet other families. Their clothing giveaway to single parents is incredibly helpful to the community. We enjoy the New Years Eve event, it is phenomenal and we have not missed one yet. Sarah has an incredible heart and truly cares about those she helps. We love This Side Up.
