Sibshops
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
Our grades 3 to 6 group meets from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm. The teen group (grades 7 to 12) meets from 2:30 to 5:30 pm.

There is no charge, and a meal is provided for both groups.

The format will vary, but will include opportunities to:

• Meet other brothers and sisters of children with special needs

• Have fun!

• Talk with others who “get it” about the good (and sometimes not so good!) parts of having a sib with special needs

• Have some more fun!

Trained facilitators and volunteers who have all been back-ground checked and have recieved Safe Sanctuary training, provide a program that provides an opportunity to meet other siblings in a relaxed, safe and recreational setting. .
