Focusing on Sibling Support

We are proud to partner with Lutheran Children’s Hospital to offer Sibshops, giving brothers and sisters of children with disabilities and special health concerns peer support and information in a lively, recreational setting.

About Sibshops

Sibshops strengthens families by shining the spotlight on siblings, encouraging them to interact with and support their peers while learning ways to deal with the challenges they face regularly. They’ll meet other children, talk about common joys and concerns, discover how others approach similar situations, and learn more about their sibling’s special needs.

  • Sibshops usually meets at Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House on the Lutheran Hospital campus on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • The cost to participate is $5 per Sibshop, which includes lunch. T-shirts are available for an additional $5.
  • To register for an upcoming Sibshop, contact Sarah Savage at ssavage@esarc.org.
  • For more information on Sibshops, visit the Sibling Support Project website.
