What we're about

Single Side Up! is the largest and most active support group for single moms and dads. We offer practical support as well as connection opportunities to single parent families throughout North Texas.

This group is one branch of This Side UP! Family, in Plano, TX. We bring your family from surviving to thriving!!

Single parenting has many challenges. Connecting with other single parents is important to your parenting success and personal well-being! We will support each other, AND tackle practical, every-day issues such as finances, legal issues, jobs, cooking, dating and more! Childcare is available for most events.

We want to meet you soon, and learn how we can help you! I hope you can attend a Single Side Up! event soon!
