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’ve published books for and about brothers and sisters, host online groups for teen and adult siblings, and presented workshops on sibling issues internationally and in every state.

However, 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.

It is an honor to serve such a deserving population.

We hope you’ll explore our website and learn more about what we do.

The Sibling Support Project is proud to be a part of the Kindering Center.  

We're grateful for the support provided by The George A. and Marion M. Wilson Foundation.


Welcome to our new website!  It is a work-in-progress.  Soon, we will have cool new features such as an updated Sibshop directory and Sibshop activity database.  

In the meantime, please take a look around--and thank you for your interest in brothers and sisters!

The only way to become a first-generation Sibshop facilitator is to attend a two-day Sibshop training.  

Even if you don't want to  become a Sibshop facilitator, you can join us for the first day for a lively and rewarding discussion of sibs' issues across the lifespan.  
Here are dates for upcoming Sibshop facilitator trainings and other sibling workshops:
