Sibshops, a program created in 1990 to help meet the needs of siblings of children with special health and developmental needs, is now in Green!
Being a typically-developing sibling in such a home can be challenging, due to demands on time and energy, and life can be chaotic at times.
Sibshops are designed to be a safe, fun, and special place for these kids, where they will find peer support and education that is recreational, with an emphasis on fun.
Our Green Sibshop takes place at Greensburg United Methodist Church, 2161 Greensburg Road, North Canton Ohio 44720. Click here for additional information.
