The Sibling Support Project

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.
