The Council has set aside funds to support the facilitation of SibShops in communities throughout Maryland interested in offering a SibShop. Our focus is on areas of Maryland where SibShops are not presently being conducted. SibShops are events where siblings of people with disabilities can meet other sibs (usually for the first time), have fun, laugh, talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sib with special needs, play some great games, learn something about the services their brothers and sister receive, and have some more fun. Learn more about SibShops here. If you are in an area where SibShops are not currently held and are interested in organizing a SibShop but don’t know where to begin, or are ready to host a SibShop but need some funding to make it happen, contact Brian Cox at
