Launching Upbring Statewide


Upbring has 26 locations throughout the state of Texas, including 14 Foster In Texas (FIT) offices. Because the majority of Upbring’s employees were located too far away geographically to celebrate the launch of our new identity at the Austin headquarters on April 2, many of our FIT offices held their own launch parties. Take a look …

Amarillo: Tammy Williams, Megan Bridge and Sheena Kelly celebrated with cake and punch.

The celebrations marked the new era of Upbring, the new Lutheran Social Services of the South, which includes a new strategic plan, a new identity and a new mission to break the cycle of child abuse by empowering children, families and communities.
