About the Sibling Support Project

The Sibling Support Project is the only national effort dedicated to the interests of over six million brothers and sisters of people with special health, mental health, and developmental needs.

 Based in Seattle since 1990, we have trained service providers in all 50 states, England, Ireland, New Zealand, and Japan on how to implement out award-winning Sibshop program for young brothers and sisters, resulting in over 200 replications in eight countries. We have also presented to over 400 audiences of parents and service providers in every state. We have published curricula and children's books that assist agencies in starting Sibshops and let young sibs know that they are not alone with their unique joys and concerns. We sponsor the Internet's first and largest listservs for young and adult siblings where participants share their issues with others who truly understand. Finally, we've provided leadership for similar sibling efforts in Japan, England, Ireland, Belgium, Croatia, Iceland, New Zealand, Australia, Greece, and Guatemala.

It is an honor to serve such a deserving population.
