Supporting Siblings

A First In Families of North Carolina initiative funded by the NC Council on Developmental Disabilities

First In Families of North Carolina (FIFNC) has partnered with the National Sibling Leadership Network (SLN) to develop a chapter of the Sibling Leadership Network in North Carolina.

Siblings of people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) are often the next generation of support and caregivers as parents age. Siblings have unique support needs as they care for their aging parents, their own children, and their siblings with I/DD. In North Carolina there are no organized networks dedicated to adult siblings.
