What We Do

Ohio SIBS is a grassroots organization of siblings of people with disabilities that came together in 2000 to acknowledge the sibling role in the life of a person with a disability. We support siblings throughout the lifespan by connecting them with resources and creating a community of siblings that support the disability community.

Our Mission…

is to empower siblings and advocates to create a better world inclusive of people with disabilities
