Sibshops are awesome celebrations of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters of children with special needs.
These events acknowledge the challenges and rewards sisters and brothers face on a daily basis, and allow siblings from many families to meet in relaxed, supportive and recreational settings. Sibshops for children, and Teen Sibshops for adolescents, allow young people a safe space to share their common joys and concerns while enjoying fun activities.
JCFS Chicago utilizes the Sibshop model developed by Don Meyer of Sibling Support Project. For more detailed information about Sibshops, visit the national Sibshop website.
