About

Being the brother or sister of a person with an intellectual and/or developmental disability can be a good thing, something a not-so-good thing, and many times, somewhere in between. Sibshops offers an opportunity for brothers and sisters of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities to get peer support and education within a recreation context. The program includes a fun mix of games, activities, friends, and discussions. Volunteers are needed to lead activities, games, and discussions.
