The CIDA Sibling Net Program is a family support program dedicated to thousands of Korean-American youths and adults who have siblings with special health problems, developmental disabilities, or mental health concerns. Siblings will be involved in the lives of family members who have disabilities longer than anyone, and they will likely be the primary caretakers and advocates for their brothers and sisters with disabilities when their parents are no longer able to provide support. The Sibling Net Program provides culturally responsive assistance to these Korean-American youths and adults with information and resources concerning their brothers or sisters with disabilities, social support for themselves, and early involvement in future planning. We strongly believe that empowering siblings through a community-based support program will help build independent living, employment, and healthy lives for their brothers and sisters with disabilities. Sibling Net is funded by the Nanum Foundation Community Grant.
The quarterly meeting schedule and the Sibling Net Summit will be announced under Family Support Group in the Events Page.
