Sibshops is Back in Action

Sibshops is set to return from holiday hiatus on Saturday, February 2nd from 10 AM to noon.
Sibshops is a program designed to focus on siblings of children with special needs. The program is intended for children ages 7 to 14 years old. It is important for siblings to have a safe place where they can express their feelings, while feeling supported by their peers. Children participating in the groups develop long lasting friendships. Sibshops give attention to siblings so that they understand that they are special and unique in their own way.
Annual intakes and registration is required. Sibshops will be held on the first Saturday of each month from 10AM to noon. Click here for more information. For questions or to register, please contact FamilyOutreach@AZAunited.org.
