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 are proud to be a program of Kindering, an award-winning organization that embraces children of diverse abilities and their families by providing the finest education and therapies to nurture hope, courage and the skills to soar. 

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.

We are 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.

We are grateful for the support provided by The George A. and Marion M. Wilson Foundation.
