Support the Sibling Support Project

Your generosity allows us to support young, teen, and adult siblings from around the world.  Thank you!

As I wrote Riding the Bus with My Sister, I learned of The Sibling Support Project's important work and met the very energetic and caring Don Meyer.

Whether it's helping local communities start Sibshops, connecting young and adult sibs with their peers on SibTeen and SibNet, conducting wonderful workshops for parents and providers, or creating engaging books for sibs and families, the Sibling Support Project is the go-to group for all things sibling.

--Rachel Simon, author, sister

There are millions of good reasons to financially support the Sibling Support Project.

In fact, there are seven million good reasons.  That’s because almost all of the seven million US citizens with disabilities have at least one typically developing brother or sister.

The Sibling Support Project is the United States' pioneering national project dedicated to the life-long concerns of sibs.  We’ve made a difference by:


  • Helping local communities start their own Sibshops;
  • Connecting thousands of young, teen, and adult sibs at workshops, conferences and online; and
  • Educating service providers and parents about siblings' unique concerns.

We passionately believe that by giving sibs the support, information, and tools they need everyone benefits: typically-developing sibs, parents, taxpayers, service providers, and especially the family member who has a disability.

Brothers and sisters are an incredibly deserving population.  Help us keep a good thing going!

All gifts are tax-deductible.

Join Us At One of Our Workshops or Training Events
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. 

Please know:
Registration costs are determined by the agencies hosting the workshops and trainings.  For information and to register, please contact these agencies directly. 

Below you'll find dates for upcoming Sibshop facilitator trainings and other sibling workshops.  If you'd like to discuss hosting a training in your community, please drop us a line at
