About the Sibling Support Project

Founded in 1990, the Sibling Support Project is the first national program dedicated to the life-long and ever-changing concerns of millions of brothers and sisters of people with special health, developmental, and mental health concerns.  We are proud to be affiliated with the Kindering Center.  The Sibling Support Project has published six books, presented workshops on sibling issues internationally and in every state, but we’re best known for helping local communities start Sibshops—lively peer support groups for school-age brothers and sisters of kids with special needs.  There are now 450 Sibshops in most US states and Canadian provinces and in eight countries. 

We sponsor the Internet's largest and oldest social networking sites for siblings and other family members, including the SibNet, SibTeen, and GKSN (Grandparents of Kids with Special Needs) Facebook groups and the SibKids, SibNet, and SibParents yahoogroups.  

It is an honor to serve such a deserving population.
