About

Sibling Connections works year-round to connect brothers and sisters separated by foster care together by hosting monthly Sibling Sunday events. In order to best support our youth, volunteers (ages 21+) are needed to help transport siblings to our monthly events. Along with transporting siblings we are seeking individuals who can attend events and create a safe, fun, and supportive environment for siblings. Many of our siblings thrive on positive encouragement and role modeling from volunteers. They just want to spend time with their siblings, but it also allows our siblings to develop relationships with caring adults in their lives.

Our monthly events mirror typical childhood memories that you may have participated in as a child, such as bowling, pumpkin picking, roller-skating, rock climbing, and more. Our goal is to offer siblings the space to remain connected in one another's lives while creating "normal" childhood activities they can remember forever.

If you have interest in learning more about volunteer opportunities please contact our Program Director Elizabeth Parker, at siblingconnections.program@gmail.com.
