The Sibling Support Project

Join Us as We Celebrate Brothers and Sisters!

A National Sibling Month Event 

April 22 & 23, 2016 | Bellevue, Washington

We’re celebrating National Sibling Month and the 25th anniversary of the Sibling Support Project by honoring brothers and sisters—the family members who will have the longest-lasting relationships with people with special needs.  This will be a wonderful gathering of parents, students, service providers and sibs of all ages from around the world. We hope you can join us!

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’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.

Help us celebrate our 25th Anniversary with a donation to the Sibling Support Project!  Your generosity will allow us to support brothers and sisters of all ages from around the world.

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!
