FVSSN is now WisconSibs!

Posted on by wisibs

We are so excited that you are here.  Whether you are visiting us for the first time, or have followed us for years, we welcome you to our new website…and our new name!

For years we have been serving siblings, professionals and others as the Fox Valley Sibling Support Network. It was a fitting name for a new nonprofit back in 1998 who was breaking through with new ideas and wanted to create and develop high quality programs and services for siblings throughout their lifelong journey.

As those programs developed and have grown, we’ve become recognized as a unique resource throughout the state of Wisconsin and beyond with our Sibshops, Sib Camps, teen leadership opportunities and adult sibling programs.  The need for such services has grown, too, as more  people with disabilities grow older, and siblings find themselves dealing with issues of aging parents, growing children, and quality of life choices with their siblings.

So lets get acquainted. Look around our new site.  Whether you are a sibling or other family member, a professional, or a volunteer interested in the concerns of people with disabilities, we hope you find an opportunity to get involved in WisconSibs.

Until next time….

Harriet
