Sibshops (Sibling Support Project)

Description:

Sibshops provide young brothers and sisters (8-13 years of age) peer support and information in a lively, recreational setting. For the adults who run them and for the agencies that sponsor them, Sibshops are evidence of their loving concern for the family member who will have the longest-lasting relationship with a person who has a disability.
